    I put my world into my Hip-hop, so I hoped to find an engineer prepared to do somewhat the same. I truly feel that Chris formed the highest potential, sonic quality of mix. Thanks to him again, and for all of the beautiful music he's helped bloom over our airwaves. In fact, I think imma go listen to some now

    Chris obviously knows how to handle music. He was easy to communicate with also it doesn't take him long to make an average sounding mix turn into a professional well engineered song. He also was prepared to go out of his way to complete the job. I am impressed. Rich A

    by J.Reu Marchand

    Hey Chris is the best In the industry. I’ve worked with several engineers, producers etc. From the first moment I stepped in the studio with Chris I felt at home. He has helped me vocally pushing me for a better sound even helping with melody. I trust him with my life. The environment Carmouche presents is very professional, friendly and welcoming. I wish to work with no one else if at all possible. That is how great my every experience with Chris has been. Such a really great producer adding ideas to the track that I would’ve never heard. You must work with Chris like yesterday!!!!! -J.Reu

  42. A: Clarity, detail, organic, feel good vibes

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

  44. A: My typical work process depends on what's the task at hand. In general, when I 1st began to interact with the client, I try to be as aware as possible so we can have a clear understanding of what we're trying to achieve from this journey. But in specifics, if I'm recording someone, naturally I'm basically a servant, caterer to that client. I immediately engage what he or she wants to accomplish for the session and prepare the session accordingly. Once we're on a roll, I aim to anticipate the next move so there is no lag time throughout the session. For mixing, I get a call, email, about the song etc. Then I receive the files, organize, & prep the song for mixing. Sometimes this process is done by an assistant if I decide to use one. Once that is ready, I go in and mix the song. Hopefully w/n a 6-8hr span, I'm able to have the song in a jamming space. For production &/or A&R, the situation tend to be more flexible and organic. After I've talked with the client/artist, I'll make suggestions on what should be our 1st, 2nd, etc step in order to move along. We'll arrange and agree on budget, time, etc then get on with the process. Everything else just depend on the nature of the song/project. I'll try to move as fast or slow as the client/artist wishes it to be.
