Utopist media on SoundBetter

The final soudntrack to "Sparta" movie (2016)

Music you write comes out of your uniqueness - Mixing and Mastering are aimed at emphasizing the nuances and giving the right color for revealing the creative design, that's why I always encourage the boldest ideas of musicians and/or clients which desided to work with me.
In the past, I was a musician playing in 3 bands and a guitar teacher - which in many ways helped me understand that in order to bring the idea to the listener - it is not even enough to be a good composer. After that all I went deep into studying the nature of sound and I work with sounds today. In my opinion, mixing is the most fundamental process in which everything in your music falls into place.
