‘Audio mastering has always been the most intriguing part of the music production life cycle, I think. For many years it was the area dominated by highly specialized and technology savvy individuals who not necessarily were the most musical people. I realized this many years ago and sought to unravel the mystery that is mastering and at the same time tried to keep one foot in each camp.
I’ve looked over the shoulders of many a giant in the business and the last few years learned to master (no pun intended) the expertise myself. However, remembering being able to uphold the musical overview of the project at hand, is vital. Only that way, both sides wins and music triumphs.
<span’>Before 2012, when my company Copenhagen Mastering was founded, I had a career of 15 years at BMG Denmark, SONY BMG and Sony Music Denmark holding positions like Local Director, Product Manager, Exploitation Manager, A&R manager, Production Manager and the last 3 years also being in-house mastering engineer and overseeing digital product preparation.
Even longer before that I had a childhood and youth dominated by music and instruments, culminating in 1985 in a professional career as guitarist, keyboard player and song writer in Danish pop group Gangway until the band called it quits in 1997.
In my spare time I’m a lead singer, guitarist, song writer, producer etc. in darkwave outfit Escape Artists, a group I also was a member of in the period 1981-1984.
Apart from mastering, my skills also includes Pro Tools 10 (engineering and recording, editing, mixing), Ableton Live 8 (composing, demoing, remixing) and various sound editing.”
