– THIS KIND OF INDEPENDENT AUDIO MASTERING LET SHINE YOUR RELEASES IN THE BEST LIGHT POSSIBLE –

ABOUT

Since July 2018 I maintaining the artistic idea with a pronounced sense of musicality to print an outstanding competitive product! The result is a master with using my brain, ears and finally my heart.

As a recording and mixing engineer/assistant I worked on various projects with i.a. Moses Schneider and Michael Tibes on pop to fuzzy tunes up to touring with many guitar-driven and similar genre bands. As well I worked a lot with international and national from major to independent bands and artists regardless of type as an In-House-Engineer for different venues.

At home in Berlin, I work on masters in my own enviroment. My control room offers an excellent listening situation. It allows for profound analysis of recordings – I have the possibility to actually hear what is going on in the source material.

Every music is a unique piece of art. I like to take time and invest in visions of the musicians and producers. My work with music tends to be very individual and musical – I choose my given components to bring intimacy and authenticity to music as well as to give music a better chance to listen to!

My love for music together with my interest in gear and graduating the sae institute in 2009 turned me into who I am nowadays – a mastering engineer with over 15 years of experience in recording, mixing and FoH engineering.
