I am a specialist in sound design and creating an atmosphere fitting the song.
I am a dedicated engineer who always strive to deliver the best result possible. As a person I am detail oriented, which is reflected in my songs and mixes. I continuously aim towards improving the songs I’m working on. This means that throughout my work, I will both add or remove elements to the mix.
My musicality has been developed and gradually improved throughout the last 13 years. From the age of 9, playing the piano has been a large part of my life. Since 2015, I started to broaden my musical capability through emphasizing on synthesizer and being part of several bands. The experience accumulated through the last 13 years, has helped me to develop the ability to assess the fit of sounds and/or themes. Additionally, as my musical horizon has been broaden, so has my open mindedness towards the music I’m working on. As previously mentioned, music has been a large part of my life throughout the last decade. This has helped me to develop both the ability to grasp a good overview of the mix I’m working on, while at the same time have a deep understanding of each element that goes into the mix.
In addition, I play piano and keyboard which I also record.

Interview with VNDRIE Productions
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: It was a song to a friend of mine. She performed it with just an acoustic guitar and another girl to have a backing vocal. When I heard the song I visioned a full band Singer Songwriter style of the song and knew what elements I thought would be great for it. We recorded it a few months later and it turned out as I had imagined in the sound and everything. It was pleasing to me to know I could get the sound I wanted just from visualizing it. My role in the project was as a producer to tell what we needed, how it could be played, what elements to use. I also worked as recording engineer and mix engineer.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog. It's something about how the suond runs through wires and it feels really warm and real, more alive than digital.

Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started in my bedroom when I was 15 years old. I have learned by reading forums and asking people around for advice and help, tips'n tricks. I had 1 year at a school where the focus was soundengineering and I got constant feedback. I got experience both in studiorecording and live engineering.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always look at the piece of music with a fresh and open mind. Be critical and creative.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Atmosphere, emotions and life. I try to listen to what the other musicians are doing and place myself after it. I find the right sounds for the song aswell.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Have a listen through the song and then make up my mind. What's the sound like? What do I want it to sound like? Does it need anything else? Should we remove something? I ask all these questions and more to myself before I even touch the knobs.When I have a vision for the song I start working on the mix by leveling and shaping the sound where its needed.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a pair of trusty Yamaha HS7 which are based on the old NS10. They are really honest and I'm really happy with them. I curently have a Focusrite Scarlet 2i4 soundcard, but I want to upgrade it. I have a Nord Stage Compact keystation and a Korg Minilogue with a few fx-pedals.
