Record Production

First off, I'm a Music Producer, not an "Executive Producer", which means that I get hired to oversee the musical and technical aspects of a recording, not to oversee the finances or fund a project.
My job as a producer includes:
• Helping artists & bands to give their best in the studio, composition-/arrangement- and performance-wise
• Developing a "vision" for the recording with the artists and/or helping them reach the sound they have in mind.
• Analysing rough material, developing, and optimizing parts and arrangements
• Recording demos (pre-production)
• Oversee every phase of the recording sessions
• Engineering or co-engineering (if requested)
• Mixing (if requested)
• Mastering (if requested)

Mix

Beside mixing most of my own productions, I'm also available for mixing external productions.
I generally mix "in the box" (I use Apple Logic, Metric Halo interfaces and software, Universal Audio UAD2, Slate Digital, Brainworx and a lot more), but I also use top-notch hardware (Helios Type 69 EQs, Universal Audio, Vintage design and SSL compressors, Tech 21 RBI and a lot more) for analog treatments.

Please get in touch if you need more information
master

Mastering

Mastering is the final stage in the music production process.
Depending on the source material, I can offer both stereo mix and stem mastering. I use both digital & analog gear (Universal Audio UAD2, Metric Halo, Slate Digital, Brainworx, Elysia, SSL, Helios and a lot more).

Session Musician

I'm available for session work as a bass player, in a recording studio of your choice or via internet.
I offer more than 30 years of experience and a huge choice of very different instruments and sounds (from classic & vintage to modern, fretless & electric upright, 4, 5 and 12 string basses).

Moonbound is my solo project.
It’s handmade pop-rock with prog-rock and 80s sound elements, with a strong focus on songwriting.
I compose and sing my own songs, play most instruments and I’m lucky enough to have some of the best musicians in the world supporting the project.
The third album "Uncomfortable News from the Moon” (Feat. special guests Tony Levin, Tim Pierce and Steve Farris among many others) was released in september 2015.
