What is Music Production?
My studio's live room is where all the golden moments happen - it's a great space for recording a variety of sound sources, from the human voice to solo acoustic and electric instruments. It's a relatively small room, but generously covered in acoustic treatment, neutralising echoes and reflections. The room is of a non-standard shape, which helps with the room's acoustics, meaning that the audio I record here is neutral and uncoloured by ambient sound, so it's a great starting point for mixing with complete control over the audio, enabling me to adapt the music's tone and shape with ease.
The process of recording any kind of audio starts with the following 5 stages:
Recording, Mixing & SequencingWhen working in music production, my job has a lot of different aspects. First and foremost I think of myself as an engineer, which covers both recording and mixing, but when I'm sequencing original compositions for backing tracks and accompaniments, I'm also an artist myself. At that point the recording and mixing become part of the process and these three areas form the lion's share of music production for me.
However, as a producer, it can sometimes be my responsibility to steer your sound in a positive direction. I'll be there to guide you during the recording process, making suggestions and offering advice when I think it's needed. I may even suggest slight alterations to the structure of your tracks, if I feel it could improve their impact. I can also help you to develop your playing by tightening up your performance in the studio environment, which is much less forgiving than on stage.
Session MusiciansAn excellent alternative (or addition) to sequenced backing music and accompaniments, which is well worth considering, is live session musicians, who are capable of adding another dimension to your music. I have a range of highly talented contacts who play a diverse cross-section of the world's musical instruments. Just tell me what you need and I'll source the best session musicians for your track.
