Hi! My name is Carsten Vos and I am a music producer, songwriter/composer, vocal producer and mixing engineer based in The Netherlands. My musical productions and compositions cover many genres going from rock to house music and from ballads to hip-hop. All these genres will have a strong connection to pop music, which I love.
Music has always been a big part of my life. I started playing the piano when I was 6 and have been playing ever since. In the last couple of years of my high school I started to take music a lot more seriously. I played in various bands as a keyboard player and started writing and producing music. Musical successes were performances in a theater tour, studio recordings and two performances at the concert hall Vredenburg in Utrecht.
I got accepted as a Music Production & Performance student at the University of the Arts Utrecht. The connection between music production and performance fascinates me and was a leading subject during my course. In 2015, I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree with honour on a project about vocal production and songwriting. In the same year I completed my Master of Arts degree with a research on the role of performance in vocal production. After my graduation I continued looking for information on relevant subjects. Through my research I acquired a lot of knowledge and skills on mixing, recording, synthesis, sound design, music theory and composition, interaction and performance.
In my work I try to get the most out of a situation. With my coaching and production I try to capture the best possible performance of artists, that is true to them and their emotions. It is in my opinion this emotion that is the essence of music. I try my best to help the artist translate this emotion into sound.
