Braulio Morales Aníbal Montoya (Coquimbo, Chile, July 15, 1992), better known as Braulio Morales, is a Chilean musician, keyboardist, and sound designer specializing in Synthwave, Astrometal, Rock, and Metal, as well as Progressive Rock and Progressive Metal.

From birth, at the age of 5 months, he was diagnosed with hemiparesis on his entire right side, which led him to begin a period of rehabilitation from a very young age. Later, he continued his rehabilitation at the Teletón Children's Rehabilitation Center in Coquimbo, Chile, from the age of 8 to 20. At the age of 17, this experience, which he considered therapy, became the beginning of his musical career.

Musical Career

As a DJ

During late elementary school and early high school (primary and secondary education in Chile), he discovered and developed his initial skills as a musician and later as an electronic music DJ at the age of 13, ending this activity at 15.

His main influences in this style were Jean-Michel Jarre, Vangelis, Daft Punk, Bob Sinclair, Tiësto, Aqua (band), Safri Duo, Pet Shop Boys, among others. These influences have remained with him to this day.

As a Keyboardist

At 15, he began listening to Heavy Metal, starting to listen and later starting on the keyboard at the age of 17, with one of his favorite styles being Neoclassical Metal, listening to artists like Sonata Arctica, Yngwie Malmsteen, Stratovarius, and Swedish keyboardist Richard Andersson.

During the same period, he discovered his main style of music, progressive metal, starting to listen to bands like Dream Theater, when a friend of his older brother gave him a CD with MP3s of most of the albums of said band, primarily capturing the influence of keyboardist Derek Sherinian (on the album Falling into Infinity). This led him to become interested in listening to and following all of Sherinian's work, such as in Planet X, Black Country Communion, solo projects, etc.

Residency in Santiago de Chile (2012 - 2019)

Then, in 2012, he decided to move to Santiago de Chile to study Composition and Arrangements of Popular Music at the Modern School of Music and Dance to improve his musical ability and career. Due to various economic problems, he had to withdraw in mid-2014.

In 2015, a turning point came when he was invited by Argentine guitarist Edu Petruk to be the keyboardist and arranger for his 1st album titled "Virtual Factor," for which he traveled to Buenos Aires, Argentina to do the work.

In early 2015, he studied Hammond Organ Interpretation at the Jazz Superior School of Chilean bassist Christian Gálvez with his teacher, organist Hengcoo Ortega.

At the end of 2015, he was invited by musicians and drummers David Segal (USA) and Andrew Hewitt (Australia) to join the "disabled" musician community worldwide, an NGO called Can-Do Musos, a community that promotes and showcases professional and talented musicians with varying degrees of disability, which they refer to as "challenges."

In 2018, he became part of the community Keyboards United Chile along with other Chilean keyboardists, dedicated to enhancing and promoting the talent and musical work of its members.

Return to Coquimbo (2019 - Present):

Since his work was remote or via the internet, he decided to return to his hometown, Coquimbo. Upon returning, he dedicated himself to building his Sound Laboratory (it could be said to be a studio dedicated to sound creation, sound effects, or presets for physical synthesizers or software from different brands), called "The Resistance - Sound Lab & Studio." The name honors one of his songs from his album CHAOS. He also teaches both privately and online and through the academy "eRock.cl," which is the online platform of the academy "Estación Rock" located in the city of Puerto Varas, Chile.
