Creative Electro-Acoustic Prod

Playhost on SoundBetter

Producer specialized in blending acoustic & electronic music. I have a forward-thinking perspective and love the different. If you're looking for someone overly creative, I'm afraid that's me.

Hey! Name's Oliver.

I've got 7 years of experience with producing, mixing and mastering. When I started out I quickly began alternative routes to manipulate sound into the message I wanted people to hear.

Working with me is rewarding, effortless and hell of a time. My aspirations to think differently applies to my productions both musically but also technically as I've studied physics which comes in handy mixing and mastering-wise.

If you're looking for piano, I could definitely get something down for you, or just get an authentic feeling if you're not happy with MIDI. I've been playing the piano since I was 7 and sadly never got around to read sheets, but that hasn't stopped me from evolving.
