How would you describe your style?
I'm always concerned about "how the audience would percept this song if they were in the recording room"
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
I'd like to work with singer/songwriter genre musicians like Glen Hansard and Damien Rice or maybe with a virtuosso like Andy McKee because lesser the musical source, the bigger I can make.
Can you share one music production tip?
Turn the knob all the way up and down at every step to be sure what you're doing.
What type of music do you usually work on?
It depends actually but I'm usually working on classical stuff, prog rock, electronic and folk music.
What's your strongest skill?
I'm really excelled at stereo recording.
What do you bring to a song?
I like wholeharted mixes. It means if a song needs to be a little dirty I won't hesitate to do so. Not every production needs crystal clearness you know. Whatever is giving the feeling the artist intends to do in the first place goes.
What's your typical work process?
Half of the time I'm recording musicians at my recording room. Other half of the time I'm mixing and revising the mix with the musicians.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I'm using KRK V8's as my monitors and got a Yamaha O2R mixer. I've got Neumann U89 and TLM 170, 3 AKG SE391B's (blue line series), pair of SM 57 and 58's, and AKG D112 at my studio. I also have access to Istanbul Technic University's MIAM Studio which is probably the best in Turkey.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
Musicians who knows how the work "behind the glass" is done. Like Radiohead maybe.
But my biggest inspirations are my teachers Pieter Snapper and Can Karadoğan
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
I'm mostly doing stereo recordings of ensembles and overdubs for pop and folk music
