ABOUT ME

My name is Benjamin Schäfer. I am a passionate mixing engineer based in Berlin/Germany with one consistent goal:

"The creative use of the present moment in

capturing a timeless musical document."
 

In the spirit of believing there is no such thing as a ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ sound, I am open to use any kind of technology or methodology that yields my desired result: namely, the expression of emotion, tension and relief which lives and breathes through music. I believe that every album in an artist’s career should be a statement that remains true forever.

I especially enjoy working with new bands, helping to craft mixes that meet the values and standards that both they and their fans alike come to expect. Regardless of an artist's career stage, I strive to create albums full of excitement, which will ultimately be celebrated for their timeless sound.

Benjamin Schäfer did a wonderful mixing job on Gentle Knife's second album. Not only by connecting the various threads in an album with a huge number of tracks for each song, but by providing a warm and full sonic picture which made our ideas stand out. Creative while loyal to the intentions. In addition he is a breeze to work with.
