Capturing, Augmenting, and Creating Sound
I remember as a child of 6-8 years old independently coming up with the idea of multi track recording through layering tape bounces. The idea was to record the sound of the cast iron grate of our defunct fireplace on my parent's boom-box tape deck, and then add layers by playing the tape back while simultaneously recording on another tape deck. I didn't get far with this idea, because I didn't have any idea how music worked or what to play. Since then I have graduated through the boom box to a Boss digital multi track, to Audacity (I spent countless hours with Audacity visually quantizing and de-qualtizing individual drum strokes) and now to a proper DAW and interface setup. I've been studying recorded sound pretty diligently for the past 3 years and I'm finally feeling like I'm getting somewhere with it! More often than not, I am able to recreate the sounds that I hear in my head!
I am now offering a variety of recording related services from engineering and/or mixing a session, to producing a whole record. I am by no means a "pro" yet but I am very passionate about hunting down exact sounds through whatever means necessary. If you want to hire me for these services, I will happily give you extremely good rates in the interest of building my portfolio and the learning that comes with the challenges of each unique project.
Vintage by Pablo is a song I mixed. I got the multi track session from DavidGlennrecording.com where you can learn how to mix by actually doing it! Pretty pleased with how this turned out, more to come!

Turkey No! is a song I wrote, recorded and mixed. It's a little off the beaten path but if you just listen to the actual sound of things you should get an idea of what my production sounds like!
