‘After 1989: A Trip To Freedom’ Out Now

Minutes to Midnight released a concept album about imprisonment and liberty, on 9 November 2019.

Three decades after the fall of the Berlin Wall, it’s time to tell the tale of how a young man managed to escape Germany in 1945, while his grandson made the other way round in 1991, looking for answers that he could only find in 2017.

About Minutes to Midnight

Minutes to Midnight portrait

A professional musician, I graduated as a bass player in the mid-Nineties. My hybrid skills allowed me to work as a lead game audio designer first, and a developer later.

After gaining a degree at Berklee as a master engineer, I started a business as a producer and mixer.


How I Work

Minutes to Midnight producer

Specialised in pop, rock, blues, folk and singer-songwriter genres, I use my roots as a musician to understand what clients need. Started out in the analog domain, I’m fully digital now. My refined remote workflow allows me to consistently deliver.

My equipment revolves around Avid Pro Tools, Focusrite, Warwick and Fender basses.
