We are currently a two person team (plus a dog) and looking to expand our endeavors by offering our music knowledge, talents and capabilities to the local scene and beyond. Whether you’re an agency looking for custom written music or an artist looking to get out of their bedroom studio. We have you covered.
Tell us a bit about you and why you do what you do? Share your passions for your business, initiative, organization.
Music is and has been my true passion for as long as I can remember. I’ve had my fair share of various other titles in the working world (mainly in marketing and events) that I’ve gained some incredible knowledge and experience from. Music however, was always secondary.
The production house was created to turn my passion into my career. Being able to share, listen, learn, record, talk, touch and breath music on a daily basis has been a dream for a very long time and the time is now to take it to the next level.
What role do you think your business plays in supporting a more creative community? OR your community in general. (Bonus! Why do you think a more creative community is important?)
I consider myself to be a creative person. Always have. I’ve made sure to surround myself with a community that supports that piece of me. Creative communities, create creative culture and creative culture breeds new and exciting ideas for the community.
Music is an incredible way to explore and expand creativity. Bending sound, experimenting with spaces and tone to capture timeless pieces of art through song and soundscapes. That’s how I like to record and present music I’ve worked on. We’re here to help harness the creative energy for musicians and agencies through music and sound recording.
What was the last book you read or film you watched that made an impact on you?
The last book I read was “Our band could be your life” by Michael Azerrad. It’s a deep dive into the indie underground scene from 1981-1991. I was too young to actually be part of this scene but the music that came from it most definitely paved a nice gravel road to where I am now.
Most videos I watch are sound and audio tutorials…sorry, I know that’s not very exciting.
What’s the one thing people would be surprised to learn about you our your business?
I recently scored a New Zealand horror movie called Reunion (starring Julia Ormond and Emma Draper). Which earned me a spot on IMDB (which was all very exciting to be part of).
I also learned to play the saw (yes, the one that also cuts wood) for most of this film. Play it with a violin bow and you get some real eerie sounds that make up the bed of most scene of the film.
