I fucking love music and audio processing ! The audio samples will speak for themselves. More info on: https://www.aestheticsoundscapes.com/
And a little background for me, I am working as a mixing-mastering engineer for metal bands but also did production and sound design for some cool hybrid bands (trap-djent metal). Offering re-amping services, drum sampling midi (through a wide variety of the cream of the top drum samplers and samples) and of course synth-keyboard production by using quality libraries (Spitfire, Hollywood Strings, Omnisphere, Nexus etc). I also have a lot of experience in songwriting as I was the prime songwriter for most of my bands (the most notable is Ocean of Grief) and finally I edit and master podcasts. The passion for doing this makes the price almost as a reward rather than a payment....

2 Reviews - 1 Repeat ClientEndorse Koliopanos
Second mix and master from Koliopanos. I received a very professional result again. Everything on time, perfect clear sound, totally worth it!!!
I recorded 6 ambient/metal songs in my independent studio, I put a lot of effort in composing and recording but I needed to mix and master so they would sound professional. Koliopanos knew exactly what to do, answered all my questions and worked with me through the process. I was shocked with the initial results, much better than I initially expected, the songs now sound super clear and professional.
Interview with Koliopanos
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Drum sampling, Guitar and bass re-amping and mixing-mastering.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Johan Ericson, Jari Lindholm and Jens Bogren.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Embracing new technology by using plugins and my computer for the most part as I believe that good music production can happen with everything as long as the knowledge and skill is there. Nevertheless, for recording the quality of the signal must be high, so I use RME babyface pro and also JBL monitors for as much accurate mixing and mastering as possible.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually get DI tracks for bass and guitars, recorded vocals and midi for synths-keyboards and drums. Then I sample all instruments and mix them along with the vocals. The final stage is mastering the whole song.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I usually try to bring out the most exciting side of the song but my main goal is to make the song represent exactly what the band intends for it to represent.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: The sampling of DIs-midi tracks with cool sounds, creating ambience and mixing a song.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Metal !
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Give your goddamn ears and brain some time to rest when you are producing. I think it is the most helpful thing in the whole process.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Aetherian because they are a fucking kickass band, go check them out !!
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Ambient and heavy productions for the most part.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: It has been just 4 years since I started doing this but it kind of escalated fast. Already worked with 5 bands who are keep coming back and I think this is my biggest bet right now. To expand my clientele even more but retain all of them if possible !
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My computer and the soundtoys plugin bundle. This is enough I think ! Oh, and my guitar !
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Have the songs as much in place as possible. It is really really helpful for everyone if you have a vision for the song or album and always keep an open mind for ideas !
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: 1) How do you envision the album to be as a final product? 2) What artist/album do you have in mind as a reference for the sound of your album?
