Mastering is often thought of as a clinical process. Engineers will make technical decisions that do not influence the sound from an artistic perspective. My philosophy is different. As an artist myself I cannot help but approach my work through a creative lens. If I didn’t follow this artistic philosophy to mastering, I would be neglecting months (if not years) of your artistry that has led you to this final step. This is why I have chosen to use analogue tools as the centrepiece of my mastering studio. These tools create a holistic system that has become my instrument. It is unique to me and the reason that my masters have depth, warmth and a tactile sense of space. Regardless of your project’s unique sonic concept, respecting the intentions of your music and sensitively enhancing its character is at the forefront of what I do as a mastering engineer.
