ZACH WEEKS: mastering / mixing / audio engineer and such.
Boston, MA 02134

This website is still very much under construction. (2/7/2014)


About:

Since I first touched the tonearm of a record player, I was fascinated with the concept of recorded music. After pursuing sound engineering for the past seven years of my life in both my educational path and professional experience, I have started to establish myself as a versatile audio engineer. Though I primarily work with hardcore, indie, alternative rock, and punk music and related genres, I am always open to expand my repertoire by taking on any project. I am a current student at Berklee College of Music planning to graduate in May 2014 with a degree in Music Production and Engineering and a minor in Acoustics and Electronics.

I created this website as a professional means to promote myself and my work. As mentioned previously, most of my audio work is in the field of mastering and ocassionally mixing. However, I am also an experienced recording engineer with proficiency working on large-format analog consoles, digital audio workstations, and analog tape and I also have years of experience in live sound. My personal workspace is very limited in terms of tracking but if you are interested in working with me on a record, there are various studios in the Boston area I have worked in previously which are available for us to book out. I am also willing to travel to record you if you have a specific studio you want to work at outside of Massachusetts.

I have been playing music in various bands for the past ten years. If there is one thing I have learned from being both a musician and an engineer, it's that you must act creatively while still retaining your technical intuition. I strive to distance myself from the run-of-the-mill audio engineer by thinking outside of the box and not always doing things by the book in an effort to transcend the artist's vision for their project and expand it even further.

TL;DR:
I mostly work as a mastering engineer with an assumed forte in pre-mastering audio for vinyl. I can also provide mixing and recording services. For now, you can listen to tracks I have worked on via SoundCloud, though I will be uploading a comprehensive list and more examples onto this site eventually. If you would like a copy of my résumé or a list of projects I've worked on or more extensive examples, do not hesitate to contact me.

Additionally, I do freelance graphic design work. I have a digital portfolio / blog of sorts available for viewing at: www.zachxweeks.tumblr.com. I also ocassionally post audio files on said blog.


Rates:

I don't really believe in flat or even hourly rates. Contact me with details about your record and what you're trying to do and we'll figure out pricing based on the project as a whole from there.
