Beginning in the late 80s East Village, Brian was a professional musician (guitar, voice, piano) who became a student of Robert Fripp and Guitar Craft through the early/mid 90s. He has many years of experience in tracking, mixing and producing organic music (Ampex MM1200 2"). Mastering began in the late 90s and his experiences in all other phases plays into a uniquely musical take on the mastering craft.

Originally from the secret music city of Columbus, Ohio he works out of Los Angeles.


Modified solid state and new old stock tube gear in a short signal path fill a single desk of great power and flexibility. Speakers from the immensely clever German designer Joachim Gerhard, hand made by Immedia in Berkeley, CA. Amplification is Class A push pull tube from Cary Audio. Bricasti M1 SE converters.


Located on a street with artists of all genres in Atwater Village, the Los Angeles room is a new concept in mastering design. The freestanding walls treat mid and high frequencies, while the low end escapes into the three story, open floor plan, concrete structure. This provides great low end clarity. Windows and fresh air encourage a more human connection to the outside world. Mastering is about connection, and this design brings something to the work a windowless cave studio can not.
