Born in Palencia, Spain, in 1974, Raúl Gonzalo Prieto demonstrated an interest for music since childhood. In spite of this, years later, he gave up the opportunity to attend a musical conservatory. As a result of this decision, we could consider him a self – taught musician without a formal background.
His initiation as a composer took place at age 14, with the outline of “Eternidad” (Eternity). After many modest forms of employment and scant economical means, he iniciated a new phase in his life in a different city upon commencing collegiate studies as a Physical Education Teacher at INEF in León, Spain, where he remained until 1999 which is the year in which he completed his Doctorate. During this period, he composed soundtracks for several theatre productions, an animated film short , and a video game, while simultaneously working on and developing new musical projects.
In 2003, one of his compositions, titled “Secuencias” (Secuences) was selected as a winner of a contest sponsored by Lighnet Music, and was published int the electronic music compilation known as “Exonique”.
Throughout the years, he has striven to combine his musical interests with his profession as a high school physical education teacher, and with a series of other activities such as physical trainer for the more important soccer and basketball teams at Palencia, Spain, and writer of articles for specialty magazines within the field physical training.
Having recently completely renovated his studio equipment, he is currently concentrated on soundtracks of several audiovisual project (cinema, television documentaries, videogames, web design, theater, jingles, etc.).
