Mixing engineer from South of Italy. I recently won two mixing contests: Ken Lewis's "ASO Mixing Contest" (runner up) and "Mix Wednesday 2016" (1st place) Just to get my first review, I'm giving away a free mix to the first one who contacts me.
I've been mixing for 10 years and i love my job more with each day.
I like to be creative and "add something" during the mixing process but my main purpose is client's satisfaction in every aspect while keeping perspective on today's standard.
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
Interview with Giovanni Gramegna - Mixing Engineer
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Serve the music, use only what's necessary and have a reson for everything you do.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I work in any genre, but i mostly get mixing work in the pop/rock/electronic genre.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Patience and perfectionism.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: My main goal when mixing is to bring the production to its fullest potential, by removing everything that's not helping the song deliver its emotional content, and by enhancing what's there that works.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I respect the quality of the work by Porcupine Tree and Steven Wilson in particular. But to be honest, i listen to a lot of music every day, old and new and so i get inspiration from every artist and every production. I try to listen with analytical ears and to understand what is that make that particular production work so well.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mostly get hired for mixing and mastering jobs. I occasionaly record artists in my studio and i try to provide quality on that side of production too with quality microphones. I have to say, often the projects i work on, aren't ready for mixing, so it's my job to complete the production stage so mixing becomes manageable.
