I'm Francois, music producer from Germany with an insatiable passion for sound design, audio engineering and electronic music production. I've already released tracks on labels such as Universal Music, Parquet Recordings, Portrait Digital Recordings, Somatic Sense, Jannowitz Records and others. Since I like exploring new ways of working and acquiring new skills, I decided to share some of my knowledge and skills here on Udemy. Together with my friend Tom, I'm running a music production & sound design channel and website called "Production Music Live".
