Hi guys
Not sure if this is the right forum to post, but I just wanted to offer my free services as an aspiring sound engineer / producer to the good people of Basschat. I am looking for experience working with bands / artists across a variety of genres, and I would like to build up a portfolio of “real-world” jobs.
I am happy to take on a variety of jobs, such as:
  • Recording demo / EP (on location / “guerrilla” tracking, or full studio recording - if can find a suitable space for drums) – ideally not too far from Greater London
  • Mixing, and reamping;– can be done remotely
  • Mastering – can be done remotely
As long as it doesn’t cost me anything in expenses, I am happy to offer my time for free whilst I'm starting out. If I’m required to travel, some sort of petrol contribution would be appreciated. The only thing that I ask for is that I can use the recordings for my portfolio, and that you would give me a reference / testimonial once the project is completed.
If it’s a medium+ project that you have in mind (e.g. requiring more than 25 hours of my time), I’d be happy to discuss it, but perhaps it would be best to start small, and then go from there.
Happy to discuss my experience and gear – just drop me a note. I’m hoping there will be mutually beneficial opportunities from this. Happy to work in all genres – I have played and recorded death metal, classical / opera, acoustic rock over years…

I’m also interested to hear from any studio/live engineers in London who may be willing to offer me some work experience.
I may bump this very occasionally – but please feel free to contact me or share my details.
Cheers
Roman

Been working with Roman for a couple of weeks and can say that I'd happily recommend his work! We've been working on a solo bass composition which I recorded at home, then sent over to Roman for all the production work. The first file I sent wasn't up to standard, so Roman advised me how to improve, both in terms of my playing, and also in terms of how to setup my equipment - I'm a complete novice with recording and he was very patient with me despite this! Roman worked on the recording and sent it across so we could discuss what to do to improve it. He explained everything that had been done to the piece as well as listen to my opinions to get a f I shed recording that we are both pleased with. I would be very happy to work with Roman again in the future, and can't recommend his work enough!

best of luck Roman, this is a very good way to get started. Hope it works well for you.


PS If I win the lottery I'll fly you downunder to record my band :)

Thanks guys. Just a quick bump to say that I have identified an acoustically usuable (and cheap, at around £10ph!) space to record drums and/or a full band, in around Redhill / Surrey. I have an excellent set of drum mics and now a good space to record loud sounds in!

I have recently recorded and mixed two classical sessions for a professional London orchestra, plus a number of contemporary music track mixing projects. I am now doing these on a chargeable basis.

Still looking for experience recording and mixing full band - offering my time for free for a few projects. Hit me up with any opportunities please.
