My name is Oliver Meyer,
I am a free music and mediaproducer and owner of CrossRecords.
I was born in 1971, married and have a little Maltese dog.
After Abitur I was doing my alternative service as a carer at a rehab clinic and started my apprenticeship as a banker. In my sparetime I only had two things on my mind: music and audio. Starting with lessions in classical piano and guitar as a basis, my Grandpa was laying the first technical stone for today´s recording studio: the Korg M1 synthesizer, which I still call my own…
Interpersonal Dealings with different people, adults and kids, is of great pleasure to me and extremely important for an audioproducer besides the technical know-how. As a Teenager I already recorded my first songs using an Atari ST computer and a Tascam 4 trackrecorder, always doing further studies by my own and at workshops.
In 2008 I graduated as an soundtechnician ( FH ) after having studied at the SET School of Entertainment and Technology in Bern besides my bankerjob, followed by the manager for music & culture (FH) in 2010.
Besides many companies like awell, cab-computer and various banks, I said hello to regional and musicians from Switzerland, England and USA as my customers. I `ve also produced music for children for VerlagHerder or the “Kindergarten an der Wiese” in Emmendingen here at CrossRecords. Sometimes all “out of the box” (computer ) or withreal musicians, instruments and children, of course. The Highlight: a choir of 60 young and excited Kids!!
If someone needs bass, guitar, keys or backingvocals additionally, I personally grab the instrument or stand behind the microphone. I arrange songs, and give them the professional touch.
I like speaking announcements for mailboxes, commercials and voice-overs for videoclips. Together with my CoPartner “Matts” from Mainz I am producing podcasts as “Rey” including funny and interesting interviews with artists of culture in the MattsnReyshow!!
In my sparetime I often go out walking in nature with my family and my dog, I´m rockin with my band „kidnapped4coffee“, and I love playing Tennis.
Creativity and fun in the recording studio is my passion. Beeing a musicproducer and soundtechnician is my calling !
