Hi, I'm Boris Melnikov and I am a music producer, do remote mixing and mastering. I am also a session bass player. I also do composing, programming, and sound design. Working in genres: electronic, rock, pop, orchestral soundtracks.
I have been working as a music producer, composer and beatmaker for about 5 years. I can offer you my services, write you a track, a beat, a soundtrack.
I graduated from elementary music school specializing in piano, but became interested in guitar and bass guitar. So therefore, for 10 years I have already considered myself a bass guitarist. I offer you my services as a bass guitarist or pianist. I can easily come up with the parts of the whole track.
At the university, I decided to finally change my profession and go into music. But when I took my first steps, I realized that I want my music to sound cool, so I began to study hard to sound engineering. That's why I work as a sound engineer. For 4 years he worked in parallel as a concert and studio sound engineer. Got a lot of experience. And I came to understand many things
In the last couple of years. I decided to try myself as a music producer. Carry out a project to create a track from a scratch for my customers. And I will say everyone is happy with the results.
I love to write orchestral compositions for films and cartoons, I also do sound design.
I hope after reading all this you will want to cooperate with me. I would be very happy about that!
