Reviews of Brian Losch

  • Listing_thumb_rob_headshotabout 1 month agoby

    Brian is a phenomenal engineer. When asked to recommend an engineer in NYC he's almost always my first call. If you need someone with great ears, and immaculate attention to detail there's no way to go wrong with him. He's been the recipient of multiple well deserved Grammy's, and surely there's more to come.

Interview with Brian Losch

What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Please provide references for a specific sound you are hoping to achieve. A production can go many different directions and it's best for me to understand what you are looking for so we are both happy!
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I come from a musical family and music production has always been an inherent skill in my life. From the age of 15 I began recording music and later studied music recording, jazz guitar and computer science at University of Miami (Bmus). I also earned a (Mmus) degree in sound recording from McGill University. I have worked and studied at the Banff Centre for the Arts as an audio associate and Tanglewood Music Center as an audio fellow. Moving to New York City to pursue a career as a recording engineer, I had the opportunity to work with renowned music producers and engineers which led to multiple Grammy awards and further opportunities not just in album production, but in television and film.
Can you share one music production tip?
The mix starts with musicians, the space, then mic placement. It's much more important to get the capture right, then to attempt a compromised fix later on. (i.e. "fix it in the mix!")
What type of music do you usually work on?
Acoustic music recorded in acoustic spaces. However, modern production techniques can be just as useful with a well recorded classical album and I often reference top radio mixes. My interests are eclectic: For example, I like to draw from pop productions for inspiration in making acoustic recordings sound larger than life.
What's your strongest skill?
Technical problem solving. Many times I am hired to work in difficult spaces or given audio tracks that are in need of repair. In every situation I strive to bring out the best possible outcome for the music, audio, and production as a whole.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
Typically I am part of a project from start to finish, which includes pre-production, recording, editing, and mixing. Many of my biggest credits are in the classical/jazz genre, but I have a depth of experience in a wide variety of music. I am increasingly involved in post production editing and mixing for a variety of music-based television and film productions.
