The Credentials

Since 2012, Michael has operated his own audio recording business to service the needs of the classical music community. Originally named “Grebla Media”, he developed a brand of quality, reliability, and professionalism, using his sensibilities as a musician and technical understanding of acoustics to produce tasteful and flattering recordings for artists. This quickly expanded to also offer high quality multi-camera video recording and postproduction. His work is chiefly focused on location recording outside of a studio including the recording of live concerts, auditions and dedicated recording projects for orchestras, chamber groups and individuals.

With 8 years of experience, he has recorded for the Australian Youth Orchestra, Fremantle Symphony Orchestra, Swan Philharmonic, Australian Broadcasting Corporation, University of Western Australia, Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery, St George’s College, the Australian Music Examination Board, Perth Rotary Vienna Pops Orchestra and countless individuals and groups throughout Australia and the US. He has recorded in major performing arts venues such as Llewellyn Hall, Government House Ballroom Perth, Perth Concert Hall, Callaway Auditorium,  Winthrop Hall, West Australian Academy of the Performing Arts, St George’s Cathedral Perth, the John Inverarity Music and Drama Centre, St George’s College and more.

In 2016 he was a participant in the Australian Youth Orchestra’s (AYO) National Music Camp Sound Engineering program, where he received intensive mentorship and training from long time Australian Broadcasting Corporation Sound Engineer Andrew Dixon. During this program he was responsible for recording and mastering all performances of the AYO as well as working with producers from the ABC to run live national radio broadcast from National Music Camp.

“Michael recorded multiple audition tapes and recital videos for me over the course of a few years. The quality of his videography and audio was always superb and he was very professional. Would highly recommend to all!”

“Michael has provided me with exceptionally high quality video and audio recordings for many years. He truly cares about the performers he records and about the music they play, as is shown by his meticulous attention to detail throughout the recording and editing process. He is always prepared to go the extra mile, be it being flexible for overly specific demands of pre-screening competitions, or working around crickets chirping in a recording room!”

“Michael has a distinct advantage in his recording prowess of having a composer’s ear for acoustics and audio production. The video quality was a bonus, giving me the confidence to present the concert recording for grant bodies and funding applications.”
