Production is a very broad term, but when made simple, it is the act of creating a finished artistic product for a client, whether that be a band requiring a full studio album, a choir needing an on-site recording, a composer needing a final touch added to their mix, or even a corporate client requiring audio recordings for an automated phone system! Indeed, these are all jobs that Liam has handled previously.
Many producers/engineers fail to communicate with their musical clients as they are not experienced enough in the musical side of things to make a good band sound even better. If your producer is not on the same page musically, how can you expect them to give genuine valuable input on the
end product? Liam has major experience in this area, with skills such as Arrangement, Scoring for extra musicians, and a strong musical ear for Texture, Tonality and Timbre which when coupled with extensive Music Technology experience, creates world class recordings.
Liam is a highly experienced Pro Tools engineer and uses this industry-standard platform extensively to work quickly and effectively with all types of clients and briefs. He is also experienced in computer hardware and software, meaning even the toughest sessions are kept up and running in the face of ever changing technology.
Working with Liam opens up your work to professional Electric Bass, and Electric Guitar recordings from an experienced performer. Along with this, Liam has links with the greatest working musicians in the area, including full brass ensembles, choirs, piano players, upright bass, and strings just to name a few!
Finishing the Mix
Liam’s most active area of work is Mixing, and this is what can make or break a production, changing it from flat and lifeless, to an exciting audio experience which leaps out from your speakers.
Location Location Location!
Recording can take place in a variety of spaces. A lot of larger ensembles prefer the comfort of their usual rehearsal space and this can sometimes yield the best result for groups such as choirs and brass ensembles. Recording on location is quickly becoming more and more appealing to groups and Liam has done this countless times to achieve great results either from a fully live performance to an audience, or in the relaxed atmosphere he creates for bands to record. Liam also has a home recording studio which is ideal for tracking solo artists, overdubs, editing, mixing, and mastering. For bands, Liam has links with many larger rooms in the North East to capture Drum Kits and/or full band performances. He also engineers frequently at the great Blast Recording, and Loft Music Studios in Newcastle Upon Tyne.
