Interview with George Davarinos

  1. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  2. A: I will make you sound your best and spare no efforts in succeeding in your endeavor.

  3. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  4. A: The second record of Greek band "takim", I worked as a recording engineer for most of the songs on the album. For me that record is what "dark side of the moon" probably was for Alan Parsons. Incredible musicianship, great vibe and music that exploded through the speakers even at the tracking stage.

  5. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  6. A: "Muse", because I think they cross over lots of genres and propel you to explore vast areas of sound aesthetics and "Thanassis Papakonstantinou", because he seems committed to his vision but also open to experimentation and sound field exploration.

  7. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  8. A: I have been in the music industry for over seventeen years, I started as an assistant at mastersound studio Athens, (an iconic facility for the Greek recording industry) stayed there as an engineer for about eight years working with renowned Greek artists of the pop and folk scene and also some rockers, then I have gone freelancing to everywhere and everything I was called upon but, from 2013 and forth I am also the engineer and administrator of A class studio Athens which is owned by famous Greek artist Vasilis Terlegas. I have also worked as an audio engineer for some of Greece's major broadcast groups such as Skai 100.3 , Rythmos 949 and others.
