Manso was born in Barcelona in 1974. Between 1993 and 1996 he studied Humanities at the Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona. In 1996 he took a course in Directing Cinema at the now non-existent E.C.I.B. and between 1996 and 1999 he studied photography at the I.E.F.C. Since then he has written and directed various short films, has published photographs in various specialised magazines and newspapers, and has taken part in a number of collective exhibitions. In 2001 he created The Pinker Tones with Mr Furia. Since then he has released a number of albums and has travelled all over the world performing. These journeys have provided the ideal opportunity to develop his passion for photography in parallel with his musical career.
