Program Director Pablo Munguía Wins Seventh Emmy Award

Pablo Munguía

The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences presented Pablo Munguía with his seventh Emmy Award in the week leading up to the Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday.

Munguía B.M. ‘97, director of the Music Production, Technology, and Innovation graduate program at Berklee Valencia, received his seventh Emmy Award for his sound mixing at the 2020 Academy Awards. With two nominations this year in the Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Variety Series or Special category for his work at the Grammy Awards and the Academy Awards broadcasts, Munguía has been nominated for 24 Emmys throughout his illustrious career.

During his career, Munguía has worked as a freelance live-television music and audio engineer with the audio teams responsible for the Oscars, the Grammys, the Super Bowl halftime show, the American Music Awards, the Billboard Music Awards, and others. He has also worked as a freelance producer and engineer for Celine Dion, Barbra Streisand, Cher, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Madonna, Robbie Williams, and Alicia Keys. 

The Master of Music in Music Production, Technology, and Innovation program explores cutting-edge developments and forward-thinking techniques in music and beyond. Through accelerated study of hybrid recording, music video production, sound design, musical app development, electronic production, and live performance, students are challenged to disrupt the status quo while inventing the future of music. 

This year, 14 Berklee alumni were nominated across a variety of sound mixing, sound editing, composing, and acting categories. Other recognized Berklee alumni include Grammy Award–winning singer and actress Jasmine Cephas Jones ’09,  who took home her first Emmy for Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series, and Stephanie McNally B.M. ’10,  who received her first Emmy Award in the category of Outstanding Sound Editing for a Comedy or Drama Series (Half-Hour) and Animation.
