Professional Producer, Mix and Mastering since 1999. Indie, Rock, Jazz and Country. Large collection of analogue equipment. Great network of specialized musicians. Clear punchy sound with a drive, edge and lots of personality.
I love everything that is genuine and can bring the listeners in a certain mood. My strengths are productions with real handheld instruments, to create a clear sound with drive, edge and lots of personality.
I work a lot with contrast in the sound picture such as far vs near, clean vs. distorted, dry vs. wet. This I do to to make all details play a special character role in the music.
I graduated as a sound engineer at the Rhythmic Music Conservatory in Copenhagen and was also an intern at Money Pit Recording, Loud recording, Black bird studio Nashville TN. Today i run a small, intimate studio in Copenhagen Denmark called The Village Studie B.
I have done this for 20 years, and made over 50 albums, lots of singles, TV-commercials , demos and live concerts.
