Add sound to image vice versa

Alexis Pfrimmer on SoundBetter

I'm a singer/songwriter, producer and creative visual director. I work with images as much as I do with sounds. I have my own project '22 for Silicon Alone' with which I released a first LP 'Only Dark Matters' in 2021. I know how to work with a team, create and get things done. I know I can help other creatives to bring their vision to life.

My main focus is your story and where you want to take it from there. Wether it's a mood, a vibe, an idea, an image, anything, I can bring your ideas to life and most important I'll always be honest when it's something that I can't do and I'll always come up with solution or suggestions for you to find your way. I'm interested in your story and I will spend time to listening to it as much as needed because I believe that a good communication is more than half of the job done.

I worked with musicians, director, writers, dancers & visual artists. I love film scoring as much as song writing or sound-design. Styles and genres aren't an issue as I worked within a lot of different contexts. Creativity is about crossing boundaries and exploring. Most important I will listen to your demand: if you want me to be creative and collaborate, I will and if on the other end, you want me to only execute, I will do so. Your story is not my story so I'll provide you just what works best for you.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

Interview with Alexis Pfrimmer

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: To produce my first album 'Only Dark Matters', I directed the whole process as well as composed and sang on it. It was really learnful to do it from beginning until the end from writing to editing, from gathering a team to the studio, arranging and collaborating. Finally creating the visuals and then send it to the press. It was wild. Now I know exactly where I'm good at and what I love to do, the rest I now know people and how to ask them what I need because I went through the whole process. It gives a lot of confidence and trust for achieving pretty anything.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: I have my project 22 for Silicon Alone with a really amazing cast of musicians and we are just starting writing the second album in a more collaborative way than for the previous one. And I'm starting a pop rock band with incredible musician too, it's a four piece band : a drummer, a bassist and a female singer and guitarist and I play guitar and sing also. We will be recording a 4 tracks demos in the next few weeks.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: I'm brand new in here, I honestly need to dig first but if there's a specific question, I'll know where and how to look for.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: If clients have the money analog is a luxury and a refinement but you can already achieve so many things digitally, again it's about what they want tell their audience.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: I have tons of ideas and tricks to never get stuck and get things done. I guess what takes the most time is for my clients to know what they really want so I take really good care of narrowing down the options with them before getting into production mode.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: I'm mainly hyperactive and ideas are floating anytime anywhere so working and focusing one element calms me down. I can work ten hours straight and feel energized because of this focusing aspect.

  13. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  14. A: I guess it's about being commercial, I can be commercial if I have to but what I love the most for myself is to explore. Sky is the limit and standards work because we are used to it, I'm good either way, don't misconceive that one ;) I really am.

  15. Q: How would you describe your style?

  16. A: When I work on my personal projects it's definitely some kind of tribal and psychedelic rock.

  17. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  18. A: I have a list and it's growing everyday so it really depends again on the story I want to tell and the dimension I want to explore with it.

  19. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  20. A: A good song is a good song not matter what genre it is, so focus on your story-telling first, some words will pop out and then let it flow as naturally as possible, natural is always good, music has to flow !

  21. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  22. A: It's very broad and it depends on the story from Hip-Hop to Metal, where I'm least experienced is latin music and any really specific traditional music or jazz. I can use a hint here and there but I prefer to leave these to experts and so I collaborate with others if I'm producing.

  23. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  24. A: I'm patient and empathic and so I won't leave until it's done.

  25. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  26. A: I'm good at knowing what a song misses or lacks. I always look at it as whole, staying at the right distance from it as a song only exists when all the elements come together harmoniously.

  27. Q: What's your typical work process?

  28. A: I always start with a beat on top of which I look for top lines and once I'm there I wrote melodies to arrive there and to depart from there. Then I put words and this usually is where subtle changes but important decision are made. Only at the end I work on the actual production and arrangement according to what feeling I want to convey.

  29. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  30. A: It's quite minimal, I have a iMac with a focusrite sapphire (8 inputs). 4 inputs are used with sunhouse sensory percussion trigger on my drumkit which allows me to tracks a beat and a fill really quickly. Then I have 2 inputs for keyboard, 1 input for a guitar or a bass and finally one for a mic Shure SM7b. I have a lot of vst and plug-ins and if I really look for a specific gear or sound I don't hesitate to borrow or rent to achieve what's needed. But I love to keep it minimal it helps me to stay creative.

  31. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  32. A: There are so many, I love to watch studio tours and tip & tricks from any producers or musicians, really anyone is a source of inspiration, there's always this little thing you can borrow and make it your own.

  33. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  34. A: During my study at film school, I was always trying to find short films to do sound-design or scoring (from EDM night club edit to subtle guitar and string ensemble). Last year, I was coordinating a writing workshop with group of amateurs and semi-pros, I produced with them 7 songs from rap to traditional moroccan folk song. I often go and visit other producers and give them feedback. Those last 5 years I worked mainly on my project 22 for Silicon Alone for which I did not less than 200 demos.
