Music Production Reel

Something to listen to whilst you read!

This is a 5 minute, high resolution 16bit/48kHz wav (57.6MB); a large file compared to regular streaming formats and may take some time to download and start playback.

I was the mixing engineer and variously one or more of producer, mastering, recording and/or live sound engineer on all the songs used in this medley – more details and full individual tracks over on the Listen page here.

I’m a professional sound engineer with decades of sound recording, mixing and mastering experience.

As an active musician (drummer – original music, rock, punk, Motown, theatre) I am able to fully appreciate the performer’s perspective and communicate effectively.

I’ve produced location, studio and live recordings for various bands & productions.

Lifetime member of Warren Huart’s Produce Like A Pro Academy.

I’m also a front of house sound mix engineer for concerts in theatres, at festivals, and in concert halls across the land for live bands and orchestras, covering classical, orchestral & choir to rock, pop, blues, progressive rock, singer/songwriters and more.

Other work includes television outside broadcast sound engineer on programs for the BBC (Question Time), Sky, Eurosport and many others.

I can bring all of this experience including microphone selection, positioning, recording, mixing and mastering to your next project.
