Namedropping isn't my style. To me, it shouldn’t matter if you’re Elvis or the milkman. Every artist or client is equally important and deserves the same attention to detail.
I provide my services directly to artists, festivals, production agencies, studios and corporations.
From a small meeting room downtown, to a jam-packed arena with all bells and whistles. All engaging, storytelling events need an impactful and worry-free audio experience.
I am very proud of my extensive international corporate portfolio, which feature clients that I have already partnered with since 2005!
Like a good book or movie, theatre transports you to a different time and place. It is this magical feeling that initially made me study theatre audio in my early years.
New developments like immersive audio makes it even more engaging and keeps me focused on learning new technology.
As a long time user of Vectorworks CAD software, I find it very valuable to combine CAD with acoustical modelling software (like SoundVision or Mapp 3D). This gives me great insight into what to expect acoustically and mechanically before load-in even begins.
Whenever I need to make a sound design, Qlab is often the first piece of software I turn to. To me it is an irreplaceable tool for automation and playback.
Logic Pro, Nuendo, Audition and Universal Audio LUNA, all have their respective strengths and weaknesses. This is why I use all of these DAWS on a day to day basis.
I find it very important to have in-depth knowledge of all major mixing console platforms and peripherals. In addition to this I use Waves and UAD systems/plugins extensively.
Since the very start of my career, I have used Smaart software for system tuning and alignment. It is very beneficial for a performance to get a scientific insight into the acoustical behaviour of a PA system, not only when tuning but also during the actual performance.
In this day and age, most audio signals are being transported over IP infrastructure instead of clunky copper snakes. To avoid time loss on-site, I often supply Dante audio distribution based on Cisco networking equipment.
Since 2014 I am part of a collective called 'de Compaenen'.
We are a group of creative audio professionals that support clients to fully immerse their audiences with an auditory experience that matches their event, play or concert. For each production that requires audio content, the Compaenen are able to create a unique sound design that supports the most critical, engaging and creative adventures imaginable.
