I am a music engineer, composer, and producer. As a music engineer, I best work with electronic music with a cinematheque sound. My own sound is uniquely built around electronic music, piano, voice, and sampling. I bring emotion and personality into my work. Look no further.
I work from my studio and have produced, mixed a lot of music since 2002.
I can be your mixing engineer, sound designer (creating VSTi presets and FX), and lyricist.
I am a trained musician and an engineer who worked in different studios. Also, I used to play live electronic music with acoustic instruments.
Being educated in languages and philosophy, I write unusual and piercing lyrics.
You will definitely enjoy working with me.
