Remote Recording & Sessions

Nadine is a very experienced session violinist, both in the studio and live. She has recorded for labels such as Island Records and artists such as Burna Boy for his Grammy Award 2021 performance. She records for a variety of artists; screen and games composers, DJs and songwriters. Nadine is able to improvise and work with the client in creating her own lines, so having notation is not necessary. Nadine’s second instrument is Classical Guitar so can also record that for your track.

REMOTE RECORDINGS

If you’re tight on a budget, Nadine is able to record remotely. She would need your reference track to record with and she’ll send you the WAV file of her recording separately, with the sample rate you require.

Your peace of mind is important; you can be assured that your track or ideas won’t be shared with anyone.

There are several ways to give an idea of what you want recorded:

  1. Notation
    Super easy! (This is your cheapest option as it would require the least amount of time to record)
  2. Sung or played on another instrument
    No problem! Just send her a recording that goes with the track so she’ll know where you want the parts to be with the track. There might be slight tweaks to make the melodies sound better on the violin, but she would send you one purely the same as your idea and another with her version of your idea.
  3. No arrangement
    Nadine can come up with her own arrangement and send you a few versions until you’re happy. She can also improvise solos in any musical style.
