Unique approaches to making records
Based on unorthodox tendencies towards audio manipulation, I approach what I do with creativity and a spirit of experimentation. My services include mixing, mastering, remixing, programming, or whatever else you could possibly want (within reason, of course). I also have developed a method of improvising with electronics, that works great for creating ambient beds underneath full songs. I am very much open to working in any genre, and I enjoy creating new fusions of style and sound.
Outside of mixing, mastering, and related activities, I am a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and I own a small independent record label (This Is Not Social Media). I have been formally trained in composition and saxophone performance, and I hold a Bachelor of Music from Lawrence University in Music Theory and Composition.

Interview with Jason Koth
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Effort is constant, pricing is flexible.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Experimental as an umbrella term, but everything from ambient to rock.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: A sense of depth. My interest as a consumer of music has always been what's underneath the main aspects of a song or piece, and that interest has definitely merged into my own music making.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Whatever benefits the music. Somewhat of a vague answer, but I try not to be attached to any specific process.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have access to two studios, one at home and the other a commercial studio nearby. The vast majority of my work is done in the box (with software); as I rotate between Cubase, Pro Tools, and Bitwig depending on the nature of the work.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Every job is different by nature, but my work tends to be what I would refer to as creative mixing. I'm mixing in the strict sense of the word, but also providing more "production-like" input either verbally to the artist or with my decisions within the mix.
