Music and Media

I feel extremely privileged to have worked with some amazing musicians over the years, and made some lovely music (click on the links below for some examples). Collaboration and creativity has been unlocked via the web, never more so than in the creation and distribution of music. I offer a range of possibilities and links to amazing people. We all passionately believe that knowledge and experience should be shared. We offer services to you at the lowest costs possible… because we know what it’s like for 99% of creative talents out there! Oh, by the way, if you are one of the 1% with record deals and big company backing, it’s £500 a day minimum (-:

Dharma Sound Labs

Check out “What’s New” for information about Dharma Sound Labs!

SESSIONS

Are you struggling with a bass, keyboard or guitar part in your latest musical creation? No problem! Just send an mp3 of your track minus the part you want, and you will be sent the part you require.

CIndy Stratton

Cindy Stratton has an immense range of vocal styles and harmonies at her disposal.

If you follow the link to the right, you can get a feel for the range of styles that can be supported.

These tracks were recorded in our home studio.

COMPOSITION AND ARRANGEMENTS

If you are stuck with chord voicings, instrumental arrangements (such as string parts, synth patches) or even don’t know where to go with a middle 8, just get in touch!

Again, costs can be kept to a minimum through web collaboration and support.

I arrange for choirs too (I run a Bath-based community choir called Sassparella with Cindy), so if you want something special, let me know.

Marc Frank

There is so much that can now be done over the web.

Introducing Marc Fernandes… my brother! He has engineered and produced for an amazing array of artists over the years, from David Bowie to Peter Andre! He has the ability to turn your final mix into a radio-ready sonic masterpiece!

Again, much of this work can be accomplished through file exchange.

Another hugely talented individual with a vast amount of experience of PC-based recording is my long-time friend and collaborator Toby Charlwood  of Tobes Music.

He is an acknowledged expert in professional digital recording using PCs rather than MACs, and did a great job with post-production mixing and mastering on Cindy’s latest album, Naked.

Go to his website for links to the work he has done with his richly talented daughter, Josie Charlwood, and for a short video presentation on how he collaborated with a San Fransisco-based musician… over the ‘net.
