Music Producer for post-rock/metal, atmospheric black metal, doom metal and cinematic instrumentals.
My name is Georgia Konstantakopoulos. I am a music producer and audio engineer. I play guitar, bass, keyboards and program MIDI drums. I've been composing and producing since 2011 at my home studio using a variety of virtual instruments, recording electric and acoustic guitars, bass and vocals. I've been playing guitar for over 13 years and have earned certificates in Guitar and Music Production by Berklee College of Music and recently graduated from a two-year Music Technology program. I also record, mix and master songs for bands and music projects at my home studio using Logic Pro X, Studio One 3 Professional and various mixing plugins of simulations of analogue audio gear from Waves and Slate Digital. The genres I am most familiar with are alternative rock, post-rock, atmospheric black metal, doom metal, ambient, and instrumental cinematic music.

Interview with Alma Music Productions
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Anything that has to do with haunting atmospheres and sinister setting. I am a big fan of dark music be it extreme metal or a baroque style orchestral piece.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Mike Sullivan from Russian Circles and Sakis Tolis from Rotting Christ. I believe they are very creative people and have a similar mindset when it come to creating. They are my favorite guitarists and my music is also influenced by them.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Try to record the best performance possible.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work with extreme metal and dark atmospheric music. I also work with genres such as: alternative rock, post-rock/metal, atmospheric black metal, symphonic black metal, doom metal and instrumental cinematic music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I can do quick editing and drum programing with Logic Pro X.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I try to inspire the artist and get the best out of their ideas. It is important to understand the music they are writing and to get into that zone with them. That way I can help them see their ideas take a much bigger shape.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I talk to my client before we meet about what they have in their minds for the song they want me to produce. What kinda of genre and which band or artist is more influencial to them, so I can get a basic idea of what they are going for and start by writing the guitar parts. Then we think of a drum pattern that would match the guitar riff and I create that pattern until we have an idea of how the song is going to be. After editing and tweeking the programmed drums to make them sound as realistic as possible we track the guitar again (sometimes up to 3 times for metal rhythm guitars) and continue on with bass, keyboards and vocals.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: A room in my house where I use a mac mini, a Presonus Audiobox 1818vls 8 chennel audio interface, a Behringer XL3200 mixing console, a Rupert Neve Desings Direct Box, Shure SM7, MXL 990 Condenser Microphone, Midi Keyboards and electronic MIDI Drums, Yamaha HS8 studio monitors, Epiphone Thunderbird Bass, Jackson Kelly electric guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Guitar pedals from TC Electronic and Boss (delay, reverb, chorus,distortion, overdrive)
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Warren Huart, Andrew Scheps and Glenn Fricker really inspire me to be a better engineer and frequently watch their online courses to keep learning and evolving the craft.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I usually work with solo musicians (guitarists) helping them with their ideas and turning them into songs. I program drums for them and also play bass and keyboards if needed. I then mix and master their songs for release.
