Sound Design

I've sound designed for artists such as One Ok Rock, We Came as Romans, Powerman 5000, Heartist, Courage My Love, The Art of Dying, On Being Human and Sleepwave to name a few. I can enhance your track with modern production and synths as well as effecting audio elements already tracked. You can deliver a stereo bounce or session stems and I will deliver multitracks back in desired format.

Mixing

My mixing credits include Powerman 5000, On Being Human, Truxton Mile, Heartist, End the Century, Hiraeth and many more. I can deliver high quality mixes at an affordable price.

String Arrangements
Full String arrangements for songs with top virtual instruments or for an additional cost I can facilitate a real string section recorded and multitracked. I've arranged "Heartache" from One Ok Rock, "Chasing the Sun" for On Being Human and more.

  12. A: Macbook pro - apogee duet - good headphones - midi controller - guitar

  13. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  14. A: I go wherever the wind takes me, the music industry is too chaotic to be picky. I have been doing this for 12 years and it's taken me all over the world doing things I never would of expected.

  15. Q: How would you describe your style?

  16. A: Muse meets NIN meets Ralph Vaughan Williams.

  24. A: Compoostion, song writing (minus lyrics) and sound design.

  25. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  26. A: Whatever the client needs! Overall though I think I can strengthen melodic content, add a uniqueness to the color or timbre of the track and then wrap it up with a mix.

  27. Q: What's your typical work process?

  28. A: I usually listen to the song then talk to the writers about their intention and goals. Then envision where the song needs to go and work your way back through all the steps that need to be taken to accomplish that.

  29. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  30. A: Mac pro - Logic X - Apogee Ensemble - Manley TNT preamp - Manley Reference Cardiod - AxeFX XL Processor - Outsounds Complete Library - ThatSound Complete Library - Spectrasonics Complete Library - EastWest Complete Library and many more.

  31. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  32. A: I enjoy all types of music but Trent Reznor comes to mind as a revolutionary in the field of electronic music.

  33. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  34. A: I split the majority of my time between producing/co-writing with my clients and scoring for film/video games and commercials. I would say that I am highly specialized in rock influenced sound design, this would include any sound that isnt a part of the band that's been added to the track to give it life and color (i.e., electronics, synths, strings, etc).
