Learn this two simple, but effective, advice for finding clients.
As sound engineers, it’s amazing when you get hired to record or mix someone else’s music. It means the band or artist like what you do and trusts your opinion, however, how often do we base our decisions on our own perception about the music rather than working from what the band actually wants and how they hear things within their own music?
Whether you are hiring someone or someone is hiring you to work on an album or EP, make sure you have worked out a deal beforehand so both parties know what they are walking in to. Otherwise, there can be some stressful moments for the person not knowing or thinking that he will get paid when in reality, from the “employers” perspective, you are doing them a favour.
