session cellist/electric cellist-bassist - LIVE
For live performances (solo or with an artist, band or DJ), or as an actor in music videos or tv commercials.
Live performance to combine with meditation, yoga, mindfulness classes or workshops (for example creative thinking, concentration) (click here for more details)
Equipment: depending on the performance, I will use either my classical cello (with a DPA 4099 clip-on microphone or Headway “The Band” piezo pick-up) or NS Design 5-string electric cello (which can be used as an electric bass).
SESSION CELLIST - STUDIO
For artists/bands, film soundtrack, commercial/advertisement, game music, sample/loop library.
ONLINE session cellist
For artists/bands, film soundtrack, commercial/advertisement, game music, sample/loop library who need a remote cello recording.
You send me the brief, I record it and send it back!
Equipment:: I use a large condenser microphone to record into my Universal Audio Apollo Twin MKII Quad audio interface and do my effects processing with favourite plugins from UAD, FabFilter and Soundtoys.
For artists, beat makers, producers.
I can also record the string parts, supplementing the high notes with violin samples.
For music agencies, royalty-free libraries (application examples: film soundtrack, commercial/advertisement, game music, sample/loop library).
I compose mostly emotional music with strings or cello. Think more sad cinematic, or dark game music.
EDITING, MIX & MASTERING
For artists, beat makers, producers who need editing (including audio restoration/repair, time alignment, vocal tuning/pitch correction), mixing and mastering.
Equipment:: I use comfortably Pro Tools 2018, Logic Pro X or Ableton Live 10, Universal Audio Apollo Twin MKII Quad audio interface and do my effects processing with plugins from UAD, FabFilter and Soundtoys.
PRODUCTION & RECORDING
For music producers or engineers who need an assistant in their studio.
As a music producer, I’ve had experience running my own band recordings at Abbey Road Institute (my final school project was with 19 people which included a 13-piece big band!), and along with my experience as Assistant Recording Engineer at Red Bull Studios in Amsterdam, I am very familiar with the pre-production process, studio recording equipment including analog console Solid State Logic (SSL 4000/8000), outboard gear, which microphones to use, where to place them and recording a session to a DAW.
