Mike Kalajian


As the son of an audio technician/audiophile I was exposed to music and recording equipment at a very early age. My parents told me my first word was actually "speaker". I always found that pretty funny. When I was young we shared a duplex with my uncle, who is an excellent musician and always had a nice home recording setup. I remember being fascinated by the console, monitoring, and patch bay. Even more so listening to Peter Gabriel's "So" on whatever speakers my father had that week and wondering "How do they make these sounds?".

When I was 8 or 9 years old I was given my first guitar along with a 1/4 inch reel to reel and immediately started writing and recording my own music.

A friend and I built our first basement "studio" in junior high and started recording fellow student musicians for $20/song on a cassette 4-track.
Later on i'd attend Full Sail under my parents insistence that I get a college degree of some kind. Every minute outside of my studies were spent recording,mixing, and mastering (some nationally distributed) albums out of my dorm and a storage unit i'd rented to be my drum room!

Cut to 20+ years later, i've recorded over a hundred albums and Ep's for other artists, toured with my own band, and mastered countless recordings. Of all the facets of engineering I found Mastering to be the most rewarding for me. Fine tuning the sonics of a mix to help it convey the intended emotion while helping it translate on a wide range of playback systems became the brackish space between art and science in which I thrived.
