Dimos Stathoulis on SoundBetter

Hello world. I am 34 years old leaving in beautiful Greece with my family. I have 4 degrees in music theoretics ,a degree in classical quitar and a diploma in computer engineering. I make a living scoring for media, making mock-ups, teaching in private conservatories, performing with various bands live, or recording guitars for artist's albums.

I offer the following services

- Mock ups (mockup is a procedure of using virtual library sounds when a live perormance is not available - a string orchestra for example and making sound as human-like as possible)

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

  36. A: If i am recording for other composers and i have some freedom as to what to record, my main goal is to learn what all other instruments play. I believe that there aren't right notes when sitting in front of an empty paper but there are right notes in front of a half empty one. Basically this applies to all my services. My best results come after careful study of what i am working on.

  37. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  38. A: I work entirely in the box so lots of software and powerful pc's.

  41. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  42. A: Usually is scoring to picture or not. Doing the whole procedure for my own works and trying to achieve the best sound possible is what gave me the experience and the confidence to do that for others.
