Bruce Balensiefer on SoundBetter

Versatile university-educated musician-engineer-producer providing bass parts and work-for-hire recordings

I am a bassist, guitarist, engineer and producer with a bachelor's in Music Engineering Technology and formal training in Jazz performance and arrangement. I've played bass for fifteen years and engineered for about ten.

I specialize in electronic production and modern direct/digital recording techniques with "in-the-box" mixing in Ableton Live. I am comfortable working in the styles of rock, jazz, blues, R&B, hop-hop, and recently, electronic genres. I enjoy making highly dynamic productions with lots of emotional range and catchy instrumental hooks in the choruses.

I offer bass tracks and parts as well as full instrumental works-for-hire and beats for emcees. I also do light or simple guitar work. One specialty of mine is synthesizer sounds from the bass guitar using effects and controllers- live-instrument electronic collaborations welcome!

I am offering reasonable rates to build my business and get some reviews and credits on SoundBetter.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
