My name is Scott Friedman. I am a music producer, mixer, sound designer, etc.

I work with bands and artists, either producing or mixing, or both. I have been producing and mixing for 20 years. I started when I was 16 at HSR Recording and Crushing Music in NYC, Soundtrack and Cyber Sound in Boston, and Endless Noise in Santa Monica. I spend most of my time producing, mixing and composing.

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

  24. A: I can either start with a client or band from pre-production all the way to mastering, or I can come in for the mix process only. Either way works for me. I love being able to make something out of nothing, but I also love taking something that sounds decent and making it really shine. I can produce, compose, mix, and even master if it is a low budget gig.
