PORTFOLIO - WORK WITH BANDS

(STUDIO RECORDINGS & ON LOCATION RECORDINGS)

Studio Recording for Anna Rune (BE)

I've worked with a lot of different bands, artists and singer-songwriters. From 'clinical-produced'-pop music, to more 'raw' alternative rock music, from electronic music and jazz, to Brazillian music.

Producing is what I love doing the most, especially when I have the freedom to experiment and write together with the artists or band that I work with. 

Besides recording, engineering, mixing and mastering I like to play instruments on the productions that I do. If a band or artist wants to, I can help thinking about arrangements, structure and sound.


This portfolio is divided into two categories:
1. Studio Recordings (recorded in a music studio)
2. On location recordings (recorded with the mobile recording set on location)

On Location Recordings with my mobile recording set for one of the Concertgebouw Sessions in Amsterdam

Studio Recordings often offer a more 'polished' and controllable sound due to the acoustics of a studio space. On Location Recordings can have surprisingly more character to the sound, due to the unique characteristics of any room or place. With an On Location Recording there's a little less control over the sound during the mixing process in comparison with a Studio Recording, but On Location Recordings offer a more 'live-sounding' and realistic sound. So, depending on what a band, artist or singer-songwriting is looking for, we choose between a Studio Recording or an On Location Recording.

Below you'll find a portfolio of both Studio Recordings and On Location Recordings, with my role within that project noted below the music.


Feel free to contact me if you'd like to involve me in your project.

ON LOCATION RECORDINGS:

On Location Recordings offer a more 'live-sounding' and realistic sound, and have the advantage of turning almost any room or space into a recording space. They sound a little less polished than recordings in Studio Spaces, but can have a surprisingly characteristic sound to them, due to the uniqueness of every room or space. All On Location Recordings are made with a custom built Mobile Recording Rig, especially designed for the job. Below are some examples of recordings on location.
