With only 5.5 hours left in the contest, I will now only provide minimal feedback for entirely new entries. If your new entry is absolutely stunning and breathtakingly original you may get some feedback from me. Otherwise new entries will get only a star rating at most.
Thank you to everyone who has entered for your great work!
I am a music producer and composer based in New York City. Versatile and wide ranging, I work in many styles of music from jazz and electronica, to hip hop, rock and soul. Originally a drummer, I excel at holding it down and helping musicians achieve their musical aspirations with an empathetic, discerning, and astute ear. As a composer, I work collaboratively with artists of all different backgrounds (film, theater, dance, and television) to marry music with their artistic visions.
I am seeking a simple, bold, and creative logo that conveys my core identity traits of:
Good listener - first audience for a musician, learns all sides of a situation
Analyst - Solves musical problems
Empathetic - Ability to be in other people’s shoes
Grounded - Down to earth, holding it down
Versatile - knowledge of history/styles/genres, rhythm, timbres
No nonsense - tells it like it is, illuminates truth
Brand essence: Bridging worlds (As producer: bridging between art & commerce. As composer: bridging between rhythm & melody, sound & image.)
You can listen to some samples of my work below to get a taste of my sound-world (some is music I composed and/or performed, some is by other artists with me in the producer role).
