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. 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 – next dates: Nov 2020.
