Corona, born in 1970 in Tijuana, grew up in the Mexican port of Ensenada. He had some formal training from his musician father, studying piano and cello, but is mainly self-taught. Early influences included Jean-Michel Jarre's Oxygène, Tomita and British synth-pop of the 1980s. In his teens he bought a cheap synthesizer and formed an electronic band called Vortex.
