Michael B. on SoundBetter
I typically write music suitable for film, television and video game soundtracks. Some of my works are orchestral, but I like to say that I write Classical Music for people who hate Classical Music. I also incorporate modern electric instruments into my pieces. My first full-length studio album, Arranged Accidents, is due out later this year.

    Mike gave very clear and reasonable creative direction for these mix revisions and solid reasons for the changes. He has a keen ear for orchestration which is a huge benefit not only for his compositions, but for all communications. I look forward to the next time!

    Mike was a pleasure to work with, very communicative and helpful, even offered to retroactively credit me for things I had recorded for him through another producer that he didn't find out until later. Gave me good feedback and was very friendly. Definitely made things easy and was a pleasure to work with!

    Throughout the creative process, Michael has made his communications clear and effective. When we moved forward with a mix revision, he was reasonable with his needs and open to new production ideas. He did not push for changes that were unreasonable or frivolous and had justification for every change, which I very much appreciate as an engineer!

    Michael strives for perfection, but continues to set reasonable goals and expectations. The results are great communication and freedom to work independently within the needs of the production. I'm happy to work for Michael any time the opportunity arises. Looking forward to the next one!

    Mike, again, provided detailed notes regarding his needs for the mix and included an accurate description of every element in the recording. This made mixing a breeze and helped to bring his mix to the next level. I highly recommend Mike for string arranging and composition. He is beyond helpful and such a pleasure to work with!

    Michael has a great ear for quality, but is also very practical. He made the mixing process painless as he knew exactly what he wanted, provided detailed instructions, files, and was receptive to feedback and changes that would enhance the production. Above all, he writes wonderful music and is a pleasure to collaborate and communicate with!
