Mix Engineer

Mixed by T Cyrille Taillandier on SoundBetter

Hello, I am a veteran audio engineer working out of Philadelphia but originally from Paris, France. I love music and helping other fulfill their musical vision is my passion and career.

I offer mixing services. I mostly mix "in the box" these days but have access to traditional analog studios in Philadelphia.
