What's your strongest skill?
What do you bring to a song?
I see my strength in understanding form, rhythm and harmonics in songs to bring in a progression. Also my love to classic sound of old times that helps to bring it in the 21 century.
What's your typical work process?
First, asking the artist, what he is looking for with he's music. I would suggest, what recording way we can use to reach this goal. This would depend on the recoding situation and the micing choice and position. After recording the artist(s) are welcome to be part of the mixing process to suggest ideas.
Tell us about your studio setup.
Its a Mac computer based recoding equipment with 2 x Universal Audio Apollo 8 interfaces, a Focusrite ISA 428 preamp and lots of vintage and modern microphones. I can provide 3 different headphone mixes for the band while recording. In my studio i can record drums and guitars over real amps too.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A lots of 60's and 70's film soundtracks of Francois de Roubaux, Quincy Jones, Piero Umilinani, Ennio Morricone or John Carpenter. Of course i like also modern bands like Suuns, Beak, Radiohead or Broadcast.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
I may record single musician in my studio or bands in its own rehearsal room and do mixing and voice, guitar or drum overdubs in my studio.
Like any recording engineer i have my own taste of what i wanna capture and it is mostly a more cosy sound of the records of the 70's, but everything with top notch equipment.
