Producer Gwen Kerjan
PRODUCTION stands for artistic collaboration, engineering and recording (FULL production basically includes every steps from start to finish, with mixing & mastering). I see us (you and me) as a team that works to deliver the best out of the music you spent months to create. A positive and relax atmosphere while working hard is the best way to achieve this to me.
Note that I also offer a remote personnalized pre-production service which can be done by several ways over the Internet. Remote recording is also possible!
Project-based pricing | Flexible planning | Backline included.
Shaping the right sound for your music (whether raw or modern) and emphasing emotions is my definition of the art of MIXING. But I also see the mixing stage as a way to reveal your personality, not just a sequence of technical routine. My art gives wings to yours! Each album is unique that's why I always adjust my methodology to the projects I work on.
I provide a guide for you to prepare your files. Also remember that reamping is included and there is no revision limitation. No extra cost. It's done when you are 100% happy!
Project-based pricing | Mastering free of charge.
MASTERING is often a misunderstood step or sometimes considered as an option but this process has an equal importance on both artistic & technical sides. It's the last step before a record is finished and ready to be delivered to the world. It reinforces the punch, the width and gives clarity to make the music to shine at its full potential on every audio systems. I don't necessarly go for the loudest level but the more dynamic and musical result.
I can master your music for CD, streaming platforms and vinyl from 2-track files or stems.
Project-based pricing | Mastering is free with the mix service.
The XTRA SERVICES cover guitar & bass reamping, any editing work (drum quantizing, vocals tuning, etc.), drum triggering & sample enhancement, drum programming, songwriting, arrangement work and even session performances (mainly drums, guitar and bass).
Sometimes artists need musicians to record. In this scenario, better the musicians, the less expenses because the perfect results are nailed in less time. I work with professional musicians from time to time in absolutely every music genres and they do wonders!

OWNER & OPERATOR
Hey folks! I'm a french musician, producer & Frontiers Music artist. I've worked with bands from many countries like Loudblast, Devoid, Locistellar, Persona, Chaoseum, Lacabra and have been involved in projects with world-class musicians such as Mattias 'IA' Eklundh (Freak Kitchen), Henrik Danhage (Evergrey), Morten Lowe Sorensen (Amaranthe), Christian Münzner (Necrophagist, Obscura) and Dagna Silesia (Warrell Dane) to name a few.
Years back I went to Tue Madsen's Antfarm Studio (Meshuggah, Behemoth, Sick Of It All) to record with my own project Indrama. Some albums I've worked on have been spread all over the world via nice labels such as Frontiers Music, Listenable Records, Inner Wound Recordings and Nuclear Blast.
"Passionate" truly is what defines me the best! Music is what makes me happy! Whether your band is new or established, I consider each project as a special unique piece of art that deserves total dedication. Be sure I'll do my best to fit your needs and reach your goals and hopefully go beyond!
