Specializing in from-the-ground-up acoustic/electronic hybrid production/instrumentation and comprehensive, clean mixes.
I have 6 years of experience producing, recording, mixing both my own material and others', and have a passion for creating unique, distinctive soundscapes that complement the artist and their song. As a multi-instrumentalist (guitar, drums, keys, vox, bass) with some classical training, I am able to understand and analyze every aspect of a song in clear, musical terms. I love working with electronics, sampling, and programming as much as I do working with acoustic guitars and live drums, and especially love marrying the two worlds in ways that feel both natural and distinct. I specialize in indie rock styles, but love to challenge myself and work within the confines of almost any style of music.

I can’t say enough great things about Ben. I had a few songs that I wanted to update and turn into an EP and Ben breathed life into them with his creative concepts, skillful instrumentation and masterful production abilities. He was enthusiastic, encouraging, and pushed the boundaries of my music to a whole new level. He made the process so simple and left me feeling super confident about each song. If you need help recording/mixing/producing your music, I highly recommend working with Ben.
Interview with Ben Pisano
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I love finding elements that complement the song. If the song seems to want a technical, overdriven guitar solo, that's awesome. It may just as easily want a single-note ambient drone for the duration of the track. I'm happy to play either as long as it complements the mood and aesthetic.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I've been fascinated with the production and mixing of Rich Costey for a long time, but other inspirations include BJ Burton, Zach Hanson, Chris Coady, and Justin Vernon.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I most often work with singer-songwriters to develop a more fully-realized sound, but also mix others' songs on a regular basis.
