Out now! Nick Platoff – Limousine of Creative Potential San Francisco Symphony Trombonist Ventures Into An Eclectic and Epic Musical Undertaking
Near the start of quarantine Nick Platoff contacted me and introduced himself. He is an amazing trombonist who became a member of the San Francisco Symphony before the age of 30. He said that he had a song that he wanted to mix, master and release during Covid quarantine and asked if I would be willing to teach him how to mix his own music over Zoom.
We started with general mixing concepts on one song. Then he started sharing several other tracks and ideas he had started or gotten pretty far along. The ambition of his vision was really unique. Several of the songs had over 100 tracks with parts contributed by such top-tier musicians. Not only that, Nick completely stepped out of his comfort zone with enthusiasm to learn about the intricacies of new genres, techniques and production approaches.
Over two-and-a-half years later, Nick released his album. It’s such an epic first release. It was an honor to co-produce, mix and master this.
It’s available on streaming platforms below. I hope you enjoy it!
