We help creators develop their projects.
Creating sound that engages emotion and represents their identity while technically meeting the standards of the industry regardless of the medium or platform.
Bring your music to life;
production, mixing and recording.
Mixing is a creative process - that's why I couple this section with Creative Producer and Recording. As much as mixing is a technical service, it equally defines the creation itself. Every step of the production will dictate the possibilities and potential of the mix.
As a fellow artist, I approach this process with tact and respect. Creating a friendly and personal creative space allows the communication to flow freely for the better of the project; this is of the highest priority. We need to know each other to truly understand each other. We need to understand each other to create your music the way you imagine it.

Together, we can dig into the vision of the project to define the appropriate actionable direction.
As a creative producer, my role can have many facets. Whether its full scale "A to Z" production or just simply mixing already recorded and arranged material.
From getting funded, to finding the right studio to record. Learning about the project's goals, vision, and limitations is the first step. Depending on the scale and needs of the project, that could even mean hiring other collaborators for recording, mixing or mastering.
Use the Mixing Inquiry Form to help us figure out the needs and wants as well as schedule a call to talk it all over.
Finish with confidence;
stem and stereo mastering.
Mastering is the final stage in music production and is often overlooked. It is a stage where the audio is polished and prepared for distribution. This occurs by combining subtle sonic enhancements with potential corrective treatment using only the highest quality digital and analog processors. This also includes mix feedback and even notes for revisions if that means we can have an even better final result.
Industry standards for loudness and tone vary from style to style and platform to platform. I combine technical application with creative sensibility when mastering different genres for various platforms. All of this occurs in open and direct communication. Mastering is not a secret hidden art and you deserve to know and understand why and how certain decisions are made.

Another member of the creative team with an objective ear and an open-minded perspective; not just a technician.
Mastering prices vary from project to project. From song length to the number of tracks; a pop single, a progressive rock saga or an audio-book; streaming distribution or vinyl; they all have different needs. Use the project inquiry below to answer a few basic questions and get an estimate tailored to your project.

Does it matter? No, and Yes. Like most modern production studios, we are equipped with a wide selection of state of the art digital processors (plugins). These software based processors have become indispensable in audio production. However brilliant, powerful and convenient they may be though, there is a reason why so many are modelled after real analog hardware. I take pride in my carefully curated selection of high end analog mastering grade equipment. In my humble opinion, these processors are unmatched in the digital domain but more importantly, are more inspiring to work with - creating better results, faster.

Create an emerssive sonic experience; or just tidy up your sound.
Backward Clock Sound offers unique, creative and engaging sound design and original music based on your needs.
Creating the soundscapes to accompany video and film is a delicate and subtle art. I take a lot of pride in my ability to sculpt audio unique to your universe. Even more-so though, I take pride in my ability to follow direction as well as manage feedback and revisions. Sometimes exploration and finding the wrong sound or song is a necessary part of the process; and I get that.
This is all about working together.

Teamwork makes the dream work; lets book a call and get to know each other.
Some projects require a full-on music and sound design journey and mix; some need branded, unique music and sound bytes; others just need an overall clean-up of dodgy recording sources and an overall mix.
There are no needs too ambitious. I love music, sound and everything that comes with it; every style, every mood. Yes, I even enjoy cleaning up a bad source. The real work comes in putting our heads together to decide what music or sound will benefit the project best – and sometimes that means no music.
