MAKING SONIC DREAMS COME TRUE
Providing the experience and necessary perspective to guide an artist’s recording from start to finish.
After playing, composing, recording and producing music for over 30 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 everything connect - from concept to final master - and tell the same story; performance, music, processing, mix .. sound.
If you want me involved in any or all phases of your musical journey, get in touch for a cup of coffee.
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.
The mission is to record your ultimate peak performance. Construct and conceive all the musical layers and record everything we need. I can assist with composing / arrangements / soundesign to optimize the impact of every element.
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.
I have the best job in the world.
In this video, made by an eagle-eyed-fly on the wall (named Wim), you can see why:
My RedHouse studio is a 'performance studio'. 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.
And yes: I do have Phase-Linear-Monitoring, and a fancy Millennia pre-amp too. Plus: loads of instruments and other musical toys available to play around with. 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.
