289 – Music Production at Sandlane Studios

(average: 4.65)

Guest: Joost van den Broek    Host: Markus Voelter    Shownoter: Bastian Hundt

A few years ago, I interviewed Arjen Lucassen about his wonderful music and how he makes it; obviously, I am a big fan! Recently, his Ayreon universe was performed live on stage and I was blown away. I decided I had to talk the the guy behind the live shows, Joost van den Broek. Luckily he agreed. So I visited him in his studios and we talked about music production and arrangement in general, and specifically for the Ayreon live shows.

You can buy the Ayreon Universe here ar Arjen’s shop and of course at Amazon.
