Hello, I’m Hamish Brown. I’m a versatile and experienced music producer, media composer and mix engineer. I work with musicians and directors to help them them get the best results from their project – and budget. I’ve had music placed everywhere from Hollywood films, cinema ads, dance and theatre to zero-budget passion pieces and most places in between. I also produce records with artists and mix records they’ve already part-recorded. I provide further pro audio services, including voiceover, podcast production, tape sync and location sound.
Before doing this, I worked in journalism. I teach Audio and WordPress courses for the National Union of Journalists London Freelance Branch and Scotland branch – next dates: Jan/Feb 2021.
