Clinic/Workshop Information

Studiowork, sound design, live effects, history of synthesized sounds and applications, that's my passion; I love to combine the trumpet with effects and this is quite unique. Arranging for recording - what parameters you should check when you arrange your songs with your band for the studio: lots fo decisions have to be made before you record and can't be fixed in the mix, so be aware of these problems. Check my studio site http://www.klangfaktur.ch and call me if you're interested in clinics about those themes.
