Recording music is a subtle process, full of fine details. Sometimes those details come at each other’s cost, particularly technical and musical ones. My job is to ensure they complement, not interfere with each other, fusing into a perfect record.
I have been working in the music business since 1996 – as a Music Producer, an Arranger, as well as a Mixing & Mastering Engineer. Throughout my career, I have launched over a dozen of different recording studios in Vilnius, Lithuania.
I am proud to work with top-class Lithuanian artists, both mainstream and non-commercial. I also cooperate with a wide range of music-related projects, run on various commercial TVs.
For the past five years, I’ve been mainly focused on mixing and mastering. Today, I’m eager to explore new musical experiences and projects all around the world.
I was born into a musical family. My father used to have a broad collection of old jazz vinyl, which I absolutely adored.
My family’s addiction to music inspired me to explore new and groovy experiences – at the age of six, I started taking classical trumpet lessons which were replaced with jazz later on when I was a teenager.
I learned to play bass guitar, performing with various music bands as both a bass player and trumpeter. Eventually, like most of us, I ended up listening to Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley, AC/DC, Nirvana, Aerosmith.
Simultaneously, I grew fond of audio equipment. I used to disassemble and re-assemble various audio devices, eventually ending up with my first studio in my parent’s attic. Closer to high school graduation I decided to quit the music school and fully dedicate myself to audio engineering.
The turn in my focus wasn’t spontaneous: during my late adolescence, I was lucky to get a lifetime chance of working as an Assistant Audio Engineer at the legendary Vilnius recording studio. There, I made my first records with Multi-Track Analog Tape Machine Recorder.
Almost a decade later, I was able to properly thank the studio for the experience and guidance by contributing to its reconstruction and modernization. It was a solid experience in acoustic system engineering.
In the early 2000s, I started working in the mainstream music business, producing music for commercial TV projects. At the same time, I was pursuing my own electronic music career, experimenting with various synthesizers.
Over the years of my professional path, I have mastered the music industry as a Sound Engineer, an Artist, and a Producer. This empowers me to approach music recording from all essential perspectives: technical execution, artistic merit, and market expectations.
