Sanj Surati

Digital Atelier, Tiger Heart

I am an award winning multi disciplined Digital Creative with over twenty years of experience within the music, fashion and luxury industries. I attribute all of my success to all of the teams I have worked with, as without them none of my achievements would have been possible. I started work in the Music Business developing an understanding of ecommerce and social trends within the web back in the late 90s. From there I started to help Digital Start Ups target Music Industry Professionals during the seismic shift of consumer habit evolution from physical products to digital. My exposure to luxury began when the Head of Music at Burberry approached me regarding the use of holographic technology for a show in Beijing back in 2011. Over 120 million viewers watched the show live. Since then I have worked with some of the biggest luxury brands in the world. My specialty is working with technology to develop new live digital experiences for the purpose of product launches and experiential events. I have worked with many award winning artists and have brokered some exciting initiatives with some of the biggest brands in the world. My most notable project so far being part of the team that delivered the 2Pac hologram at Coachella back in 2012. This initiative won Titanium at the Cannes Lions and broke Digital PR Records faster than anything before that feat. I am the lead singer in a political rock band and I love scarves and trainers. Favourite projects so far: Producing the Magic Mirror installations for Charlotte Tilbury, wowing the Chef de Cave of Dom Perignon and delivering the world’s largest holographic installation for Alfred Dunhill in Shanghai. May 2017: I have just set up my own agency called Tiger Heart which is the next stage in my digital journey.

Paco Garcia

CEO , Noise Comuncación

Con mas de dos décadas de experiencia trabajando en marketing, comunicación y ventas para algunas de las marcas más destacadas a nivel nacional e internacional, y movido por las carencias que encontraba en mi día a día a nivel de comunicación decidí embarcarme en mi propio proyecto, dando vida a www.sonidoeiluminacion.com

Gracias a un enfoque en contenido de calidad y objetivo en el sector AV enfocado en la comunidad hispano parlante alrededor del mundo, www.sonidoeiluminacion.com se convirtió rápidamente en un referente dentro de nuestro querido sector. No obstante, el éxito de esta iniciativa me llevó a ver la necesidad de expandir nuestras fronteras y diversificar nuestra oferta.

Tras tres años de trayectoria con www.sonidoeiluminacion.com , decidimos ampliar nuestro porfolio de marcas con www.integracion-audiovisual.com, lo que nos ha permitido especializarnos aún más en el sector AV. Poco tiempo después se incorporaron www.AV-red.com y www.Noise-TV.com y Smart-AV

Fue así como surgió Noise Comunicación, un grupo de medios especializado en el sector AV de habla hispana, que da cobertura a mas de 350k visitantes mensuales alrededor del mundo.

A lo largo de estos años, he tenido el honor de trabajar junto a un equipo talentoso y comprometido que comparte mi visión, amor y dedicación por el sector audiovisual. Creemos firmemente en el poder de la colaboración, por lo que en Noise Comunicación nos esforzamos por trabajar codo con codo con nuestros clientes, promocionando sus productos, servicios e instalaciones, y dando cobertura especificas a sus necesidades de marketing y comunicación.

Siempre en busca de la excelencia, la mejora y adaptación a nuevas tendencias, formatos y tecnologías, nuestro éxito radica en nuestra capacidad para escuchar, entender y responder a las necesidades de nuestros clientes y audiencia.


With more than two decades of experience working in marketing, communication and sales for some of the most prominent brands nationally and internationally, and driven by the shortcomings I found in my day to day communication I decided to embark on my own project, giving life to www.sonidoeiluminacion.com.

Thanks to a focus on quality and objective content in the AV sector focused on the Spanish-speaking community around the world, www.sonidoeiluminacion.com quickly became a reference in our beloved sector. However, the success of this initiative led me to see the need to expand our borders and diversify our offer.

After three years with www.sonidoeiluminacion.com , we decided to expand our brand portfolio with www.integracion-audiovisual.com, which has allowed us to specialise even more in the AV sector. Shortly afterwards, www.AV-red.com and www.Noise-TV.com and Smart-AV joined the company.

This is how Noise Comunicación was born, a media group specialised in the Spanish-speaking AV sector, covering more than 350k monthly visitors around the world.

Throughout these years, I have had the honour of working alongside a talented and committed team that shares my vision, love and dedication to the audiovisual sector. We firmly believe in the power of collaboration, which is why at Noise Comunicación we strive to work closely with our clients, promoting their products, services and facilities, and providing specific coverage for their marketing and communication needs.

Always in search of excellence, improvement and adaptation to new trends, formats and technologies, our success lies in our ability to listen, understand and respond to the needs of our clients and audience.
