Kultur-Time Productions has been running for 5 years creating music which focuses on Latin soundscapes, European club music and unique 70s classic wah-funk sounds, all underpinned by cool, live grooves. For another instalment of our Profiles series we caught up with Kultur Time Productions’ main main Andy.
What is your musical background?
For me music has always been a very important aspect to my life. My first tastes of the industry came in 1990 from working as a live sound engineer for a company called Time Bomb artists, an event management company specializing in onstage artist performance and sound management. For 5 years I worked in various venues across the United Kingdom and Mainland Europe mastering the art of live audio engineering and onstage production. I moved over into the studio recording side of things when a position came up at Eternity Records studio in Witham Essex in 1996. This was a small production outfit specializing in the current dance sector with a group of song writers, producers and engineers recording demos for dance acts signed to Timebomb Artists. I later had ideas and dreams of my own so I started my own label Kultur Time – a music production company based in Colchester in Essex which I have been growing over the past 5 years.
How would you describe the style(s) of music you make? Do you focus on any specific instruments or equipment in your work?
It’s a hard thing to say where our musical tastes lay as they change with ever evolving new projects that I work on and also with other new artists constantly put new ideas and new musical concepts into our minds. Dance of all genres is of interest to us, we have a particular keen interested in Latin soundscapes merged with European club music and 70’s wah funk. We love to focus on customer ideas and really listen to their musical needs and arise to the challenge of filling a once blank canvas. We can make great music from an idea set to us and excel in turning the idea into a living breathing masterpiece that fits with the original idea. We can tailor make all genres of musical types using the latest in cutting edge music technology software and hardware, techniques from old and new and our intuition.
What successes have you had in the music/synchronisation industry so far?
We have just finished scoring a 30 minute nature documentary and are in the final stages of post production with the film makers. It’s been a very interesting project to work on and we have also been involved in the film editing process.
Have you been involved in any exciting projects?
Recently I have been working on some sessions for a company based in Slovenia (Urban Karma Productions) who record and master samples for publication to sample CDs/DVDs. We have also just landed a contract with a web travel company to supply 100% of the music scores and voice overs for their latest online travel videos.
What are your goals for the future?
Working mainly within the film/television/radio media industry excelling in our strengths of current up to date music and soundscapes for the latest ear catching music on screen and on the airwaves, Increasing our stockpile of pre-recorded material for web music sales. We plan next year to tour some dates in the UK and in Europe with a new live act we are developing currently.
Anything else you would like us to know?
We also work closely with a network of musicians from around the globe for real ethnic blends with original ethnic instruments and artists from countries of the instruments’ origin.
