His goal is giving each instrument it's own, equally important place. Acoustic ensembles are dynamic and organic species, and they require an organic approach. This means that, in general, presets won't do the trick for him. He's "riding the levels" more often than he's "compressing".
Mixing is a handicraft and he's passionate about it.
His aim is to create a spectral balance, tranquility and a spatiality that's very pleasing on any audio system. Just like when he's composing, performing and mixing, he's at home when he's mastering any music style, especially classical music, world music and jazz.
Mastering is precision- and patience work and Joris is fond of it.
PS: if desired, Joris can make a master very loud, competing with current commercial standards while still remaining decent dynamics.
But personally he prefers the motto:
"Stop The Loudness War!"
• Using the ears wisely: monitoring at low to medium levels to prevent listening fatigue and hearing loss
• Using quality monitors, different headphones and electrostatic speakers, but also hi-fi gear and small consumer / laptop / iPhone speakers and regularly switching between them
• Being very picky with used gear (microphones, converters, monitoring, compressors, equalizers and reverbs)
• Respecting the musicians who made the music, and it's style/genre
• Loving each and every step of the process, from start to finish
• Clear communication:
Listening to the exact wishes of all customers and create an open atmosphere in which everything can be discussed
• First listening, then act and support the musicians, turn the best spotlights on and aim them at the performers at the very right moment
• Very devoted and serious attitude, but not afraid of experimenting either (if desired). Experiments always have to be supporting the music itself.
