Bass, Engineer, Mixer,Producer

Ray Archie on SoundBetter

I play the cello, bass, & piano and have performed internationally with Leonard Bernstein, Michael Tilson-Thomas, LSO, SF Symphony orchestra, & many others. I cross the boundaries of classical, jazz, rock, hip-hop, and beyond.

I play a custom Singleton 5-string. It has traditional jazz bass pickups as well as a set of hexaphonic pickups in the bridge. My 4 string modded Fender Jazz (PJ, Audere pre, drop C lever).

Recent musical projects have included:
Dark Matter Theory - a 3 piece power trio (bass & producer)
Down Low Connection - a 7 piece hip-hop band (bass, production, bandleader)
It's Our Time - international collaboration (executive producer & writer)
Sunrise2Sunrise - downtempo ambient meditation focused on solfeggio frequencies (artist, bass, producer, mixer)

more stuff that I'm involved with::
As a technologist, I have an extensive technology, telecommunications, and business career. While working as the Director of Streaming Operations for CBS Radio Corporate, I helped to build one of the largest streaming networks in the world. I also was able to develop real-time audio processing solutions which were rolled out to over 250 stations nationwide.

My passion for music and the creative process led to the creation and launch of MixLuv – a social platform designed for musicians, songwriters, and engineers to collaborate, create and manage their world of music online. I also launched a non-profit called Notes to the Soul, an organization whose purpose is to promote well-being through the language of music. Notes to the Soul is the parent organization of MusicMakers Workshop.
