Ladies and Gentleman! You are looking for professional support to bring up your music to the next level? Get in contact with me! I can assist you in many ways. Finding good musicians for you if needed. I can give you objective feedback and produce you. Track your songs in a professional but afordable studio. Mix your tracks.

After failing in school but being crazy about music and playing in bands as a drummer I discovered sound engineering.
It´s the best for me as I´m musically and technically talented.
I started working in the 90ies in one of the biggest studios in Austria at this time. That was an awesome studio. Two Neve Consoles, Sony Dash, Studers with SR, tons of outboard gear and last but for sure not least a great recording room. Like many other big studios it got shut down around 2000 but I was lucky and got hired by the most active producer in Austria. Christian Kolonovits. I worked constantly on his productions for over 6 years. Countless recordings, mixes and a lot of released productions later I started to produce on my own and still do so.
My focus is still on engineering and mixing. My homebase studio is based in Vienna called MusikzimmerWien but I can work all over the place.

Contact me through the green button above and let's get to work.
