Ian Gottlieb on SoundBetter

LA based professional session cellist. Recorded cello for Netflix Original Series The Witcher and Shadow and Bone, Mike Shinoda, and Mike Posner, toured w/Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Played everywhere from contemporary music at Yale School of Music to samba in the streets of São Paulo, Brazil.

I'm an open minded and experienced cellist committed to delivering professional and timely remote recordings to clients from all musical walks of life. I'm well-versed in classical, contemporary, singer-songwriter, pop, folk, and world music idioms, and I'm always happy to embellish or improvise on any material provided. Send me music in any form: midi file, audio, sheet music.

I have a modified cello outfitted with gut strings that allows me to very effectively evoke historical and folk bowed strings such as viol, gamba, rebec, fiddle, erhu, huqin, etc.

I'm also a very active orchestrator and contractor. I can put together a team of remote musicians and orchestrate/arrange music for your song in any style/genre.
