My maxim as an engineer is to enhance what is good of your performance without taking away your artistic voice...

..I do this with my professional-grade tools and extended knowledge of digital signal processing that I have gained as a live and studio musician, live and studio engineer, and in formal (BA, MA) and informal education.

I'm a recording and mixing engineer with fantastic experience as both a musician and engineer who has spent the last five years in analog, hybrid and digital studios, live monitoring and FOH, field and location recording, and programming Fx.

My high technical proficiency with pro-audio equipment and software is built upon my classical training and passion for music, and I use this background to maximize the potential for your music.

I have a Master's degree with Merit in Music production and a Bachelor's with Honors in Creative Music Technology.

Interview with Emilio M Rizzi

What do you like most about your job?
I get to contribute to the most beautiful art form in the world.
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
That it's not needed. Proper recording techniques and knowledge, good mixing practices; That's indispensable in music.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
I ask to skype or come to a practice so I can listen to the music first. I think it's important to be able to describe your style using three bands and have you fall right between them. My first track is always free, it's a "I can take your music seriously and respect it" - Then we go from there...
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
Machine Head. I love the timbral intricacy that every section of their music offers. Really mellow and intimate to stadium sized rock show.
Can you share one music production tip?
Don't lie to your recording artist. Always be critical (and polite!) of what you're recording and if something sounds off just say it. "Ok, thanks Bob. Could you go again and watch out for that second to last note, you went a little sharp. Also, this time try with a chesty-er voice!"
