Simon Cotter

Simon is an open minded sound engineer who has been working in the world of professional music production since 2011. His training and exploration in sound took place at RMIT where he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Sound) in 2010. Simon’s passion for music isn’t bound by certain genres, and his approach to production is by no means constrained to industry standards. He likes to think of the studio as a musical instrument in its self and thoroughly enjoys the creative aspect of recording, mixing as well as sound design. That being said, his 5 years of professional experience have allowed him to diversify his skill set to a large degree, which means he is ready and able to work with a broad range of artists.

Throughout the last 5 years, Simon has gained extensive experience at many of Melbourne’s top recording studios and has had the pleasure of working on a number of internationally successful records. Additionally, Simon enjoys working with DIY/Underground bands and musicians, and is very resourceful about achieving the correct “production aesthetic” for the right artist.
