Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Anything that can help me to understand their vision and the sound they want. The best way to demonstrate vision is to use references so I ask for reference tracks, favourite productions.

A: I started in 2012 as live sound engineer in Gnesin Academy Concert Hall a year later I started working at broadcast station "Orpheus" recording and mixing classical music concerts in various halls in Moscow.
