Creative Electro-Acoustic Prod

Playhost on SoundBetter

Producer specialized in blending acoustic & electronic music. I have a forward-thinking perspective and love the different. If you're looking for someone overly creative, I'm afraid that's me.

Hey! Name's Oliver.

I've got 7 years of experience with producing, mixing and mastering. When I started out I quickly began alternative routes to manipulate sound into the message I wanted people to hear.

Working with me is rewarding, effortless and hell of a time. My aspirations to think differently applies to my productions both musically but also technically as I've studied physics which comes in handy mixing and mastering-wise.

If you're looking for piano, I could definitely get something down for you, or just get an authentic feeling if you're not happy with MIDI. I've been playing the piano since I was 7 and sadly never got around to read sheets, but that hasn't stopped me from evolving.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
