Providing the experience and necessary perspective to guide an artist’s recording from start to finish and materializing his/her artistic vision.

After playing, composing, recording and producing music for over 35 years, I’m more than experienced to cover the whole process - often starting in a rehearsal room or home studio and ending in a mastering studio.

Delivering a musical listening experience that really expresses the artist’s inspiration, is what ultimately drives me. Making every element seamlessly connect - from concept to final master - from the delicate capture at the microphone to the ears of the listener. To build a musical story using performances, sounds, processing and mix, that is .. music.

If you want me involved in any or all phases of your music production process, send me an email.

 

Pre Production

Together we’ll listen to (live) demos to explore the essence of your music. We focus on how you want to present your music to your audience. Prepare, practice and fine-tune performances. We make a technical plan that will guide the production phase.

Production

The mission is to record your ultimate peak performance. Construct and conceive all the musical layers and record everything we need in optimal form. I can assist with composing / soundesign / arrangements, to optimize the impact of every element.

Mix

An important part is to edit all tracks and add FX to enhance the story lines. Mixing is performing the perfect balance between all sounds and instruments to create a magical listening experience.

• Mix-as-a-service if you produced elsewhere.

My RedHouse studio is a 65 m2 mix an performance studio based in Amsterdam. It’s an intimate place, where musical ideas can be captured without the flow being interrupted. Everybody is together in the same room, working on the same thing. Plus: loads of instruments and synthesizers, a Hoffmann T122 piano, and other musical toys available to play around with.
We can jam or compose and arrange. We can record and make sounds and mix. The exceptional acoustics make it easy to perform and make you feel at home. And yes I have tube mics, and what I love to do is to capture a great performance of someone who shares his art.

I envisioned that a recording artist needs a place that sounds good, where they feel comfortable, and a guy that knows how to work all the buttons and faders.

If you want to make tracks together or need help with production, mixing or recording; send me an email or you can book a video meeting here.

“Phaedrus felt that at the moment of pure Quality perception, or not even perception, at the moment of pure Quality there is no subject and there is no object. There is only a sense of Quality that produces a later awareness of subjects and objects. At the moment of pure Quality, subject and object are identical.”
