Recording classical music is my strong point, ranging from solo to great orchestra recordings. I work for different public broadcast stations as well as for various soloists and ensembles.
What makes a great recording at the end of the day? – A great recording is able to perfectly transport the artist's interpretation to the listener, without any wrong notes or similar trivial distractions. This is made possible by an inspiring and relaxed atmosphere during the recording session, where everyone is speaking the same “language”, and by a musically skilled editing during postproduction. At the same time, a high-quality, perfectly balanced sound enables the most subtle details to come through.
A well-founded musical background is important and self-evident during all production steps. My experience with the most different recording projects and my own activities as a musician make it easy to understand the needs “on the opposite side of the microphone”.
A recording's typical process:
- Planning: What is important to you as the customer? What kind of time schedule makes sense? What recording venue fits in terms of both acoustics and logistics?
- Recording: Set-up of mobile recording equipment, sophisticated sound check, finally the actual recording.
- Postproduction: During the edit the different recording “takes” are being inaudibly combined to a perfect final result. The multitrack mix allows for refining balance and sound.
- Mastering: Creation of the final product in whatever format (CD production master, file formats for download, etc.)
However, every project is different. Feel free to get in touch for an offer or if you just want to discuss your ideas.
