Dedicated and client-focused freelance audio engineer with 9+ years customer service experience driven to capture and deliver outstanding recordings.
Mix and Production specialist with a focus on experimental sounds and foley recordings. I am able to take your song from an idea in your head through the recording, mixing, and production process as well as offering basic mastering services. Having worked on a feature-length film as well as a couple short films, I am able to create music, foley, and sound effects for a variety of audio visual work. I work mostly with Hip Hop, Indie Rock, and Ambient artists and personally explore many different subgenres of electronic music, while also retaining a completely open mind and taste in all genres of music.

Interview with Tony Sarić
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: An experimental EP for myself, a hip-hop/trap album for a client, and a indie rock/shoegaze album for another client.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog for that human feel. Digital for instruments and sounds that I am unable to play or create in the real world.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The freedom of being able to decide what sounds good. Everything is subjective.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That creating a unique sound doesn't take as many hours as it really does. Happy accidents don't just happen without a lot of time and energy put into the process.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Just like with a tattoo artist, look for someone who is not only interested in your piece of art, but also has a strong vision of what it could be. Someone who gets excited to work with you.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Anyone out of the record label Tri-Angle Records because they all have unique sounds and approaches to the current music scene. I really believe they are breaking molds and paradigms with their visions.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Be creative with your audio signal routing techniques. You never know what you can string together between analog and digital equipment to find a very unique sound.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Experimental or ambient music is my favorite because the possibilities are endless. I also love bringing together hip hop or indie type music especially if it has an edge that no other artist has currently. I listen to a lot of trip hop, dub, punk, and jazz.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Production, definitely. However, I still love the songwriting, recording, and mixing process.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Creative and experimental ideas to add production depth and level to the tracks. I am willing to continue experimenting until I find that perfect sound. Not held down by traditional techniques (however, I am fully able to mix and produce traditionally).
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Bedroom Studio using Ableton Live 10 and Audacity, with minimal work in Ozone 8. Akai APC40 MKII, Casio CTK-2000, and Epiphone Les Paul Special II for live shows and recordings.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Massive Attack, Amon Tobin, Clams Casino, Death Grips, Daniel Lopatin, Forest Swords, Galimatias, Boards of Canada, Burial, Gorillaz, Portishead, Nicolas Jaar, DJ Shadow, FKA Twigs, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Herbie Hancock, Shabazz Palaces, Skream, T.S.O.L.
