Ardie Son on SoundBetter

Mellow and moving cello lines for your song or track.

Recording warm and moving cello lines are my favorite! Putting some real emotion into that string. I usually operate within a genre that in between pop music and/or neo classical music. Subtle cello lines for coloring and supporting a vocal line or writing a melody that really stands out on it's own. I know what needs to be done when it comes to adding cello to a song. Being a film composer I listen to what the music is about more than solely zooming in on the specific cello line. Growing up producing music with the technology that comes with it I naturally tend to be sound texture focussed. I love soundscaping and I have a degree in composition and music production which makes me aware of the mix as a whole. I have done a ton of live shows as a session cellist, mostly pop music oriented, like playing in Martin Garrix's string quartet, but also playing Bach's cantates.

I'm kind of a hybrid, growing up in a pop music culture (playing guitar) while being well trained as a classical cellist. I can read midi as well as sheet music, or do everything by ear, which sometimes works even better :).
I love teamwork and making something more beautiful. It's just the best!

I record cello in my own music studio.

    My first time working with Ardie and it was such a great experience. He delivered the tracks very quickly, used different mic positions and provided alternate takes. His playing is superb: beautiful and moving. Highly recommend. Also, his stems are well organized and his communication is stellar.
