  5. Review by Matt K.

    Excellent to work with, brought new ideas to the table. Totally surprised us with some horns and kicked our butts into a new idea and direction that helped to unstuck a track that we were struggling with.

    Thanks Ontologist!! Did an amazing job for all of my tracks, also enjoyed so much the streamlined process he provided.
    Immersed himself into each of the tracks and noticed the high fidelity embellishment to every detail!
    Communication was great, clear and to the point. He explained everything he did and why he did it, but always with a lot of respect for the song and for the artist's composition style.
    Super professional and friendly.
    Working with him again soon!!


  7. Review by Croci S.

    fortunately I found ontoligist.
    he has been realy professional about every step of the project.
    he has been very helpful, openminded, got the sense of my songs,
    giving them the right balance between my wishes and the production process.
    sometimes is difficult to work togheter only trhough mail, but his music sensibility was just incredible, often I hadn't any needed to say my thought and he was able to catch the right mood of the song.
    I really advice you ontologist .. thanks ontologist!!!
