Joan Borràs, tècnic del Quadre de Veus de Radioteatre  

Born in Terrassa in 1968, at age 15 he began to collaborate Matadepera Radio, which combines the speech and performing his own musical program with sound technician jobs in other areas. Later, he joined Radio Terrassa which carries out technical and sound performance in all types of programs: news, sports, magazines, entertainment, music ... and in 1988 he began to collaborate with "Quadre de Veus de Radioteatre" of the station as a sound engineer in a recording of the radio theater drama, becoming since then, the regular sound technician of the group.

The biggest challenges are carried out, firstly, the beginning of recorded performances of radio theater with an audience, which became a success, and on the other, the constant concern for improving the sound quality of the works with incorporation of new technologies to reach the most modern forms of digital sound edition.

Among the etchings include, for example, "Agnès de Déu" by John Pielmeier, "Bodas de Sangre" by Federico Garcia Lorca, "Don Juan Tenorio" by José Zorrilla, "L'Hostal de la Glòria" Joseph Maria Sagarra "Fulgor y muerte de Joaquíin Murieta" by Pablo Neruda.

He has made several contributions in making any sound plays in different sections of the theater scene in "Centre Social Catòlic" or "casal de Sant Pere", taking part in performances of "Yerma", "Antaviana" or "Don Cuan Tanorio" a comical version of the classic by Zorrilla.
