Among other activities related to sound production, Cotô has been responsible for mixing many radio and TV events in Brazil, including the MTV Video Music Awards, Visa Brazilian Music Awards, Garagem da Mix, and Transamérica Live Studio. Cotô’s work as chief sound engineer on Chico César’s album “De Uns Tempos pra Cá” earned him a nomination for Best Sound Engineer at the 2006 Latin Grammy Awards.
