Giorgos Kravvaritis

Mixing & Mastering Engineer

Giorgos Kravvaritis on SoundBetter

My love for music has given me the opportunity to work around very inspiring individuals and musicians so far. I enjoy working in a broad range of genres, and I attempt to give each musical project a life of it's own, by providing recording, mixing or mastering. Eager to incorporate my skils on your music and push towards great sonic experiences.

With regards to my music and engineering background, I started recording music at home back in 2012. I particularly enjoy and explore the process of recording & mixing but also playing in band setups, as well as in smaller groups in more hybrid-electronic setups. In 2016 I worked as a composer & engineer for a short film that is still doing its journey around the globe in experimental short film festivals. As an artist, mixing engineer and music director I am working with an art production company in Greece, since 2017, and currently, have completed four dance/theatrical pieces that have successfully played. In April 2018, along with fellow musician and close friend Pantelis Pilavios, I have co-founded the experimental music platform ‘Polyscope’, in which a multitude of music projects, live events, and multidisciplinary projects are released onto the world. At the moment, I am an intern assistant engineer for chief audio engineer Thomas Van Opstal at Red Bull Studios Amsterdam since April 2019. Finally, I have been working as a freelance recording & mixing engineer and musician for the past 4 years in various areas in Greece, UK, and The Netherlands.

Interview with Giorgos Kravvaritis

  1. Q: What's your typical work process?

  2. A: In the beginning, I like to spend some time talking with the artist and understand their intention when making music. I really enjoy chatting about the music they are into or exploring at the moment and get a feeling for the sound they are looking for. Before I start mixing, I prepare the sessions meticulously and get a good grip of what the tracking has achieved. Afterwards, I like to listen before I touch any faders. I decide what is wrong with the mix and eliminate any unnecessary information that gets in the way of the song's goal. After that, I like to get as close to the final sound of the song by feeling it, fast. I'll revise the mix or master until you are completely satisfied with the result. I enjoy experimenting a lot, as far as the artist nudges me to do so. No magic, just love for sound.
