A Brief History of Shane
Hello, hello! So, for some reason you want to know more about me. Don't worry, I won't judge you...
So, basically, I've been into music (and art in general) since before I can remember. My childhood placed an irreversible obsession with art in me; in hindsight, this is probably bound to happen when you grow up in an art gallery (I'm not joking).
I was also a very inquisitive child, and science, and technology also really took hold of my imagination. I even wanted to become a doctor for many years.
Eventually music won (yay)! And as I developed my instrumental, and songwriting skills over the years, the interest in music, science, and technology eventually united into the only logical thing to do. That being music technology, computer composition, acoustics, sound engineering, and all of the other things of that ilk.
So to hone my skills, I went to college (and got the highest mark ever awarded at the institution =3), and University, and then even did a Master's in electronic composition, and music in AV media. See my Curriculum Vitae for more details.
During the course of this I worked furiously in studios, and any and all projects I could find. Where most students spent their student loan on alcohol, I spent the majority of mine on pro audio equipment (because I'm on a whole other level of cool).
I'm a perfectionist, who's never fully satisfied with the things I make. Combine this with my impossibly high threshold for the conditions of success, and you've got someone who produces things of a very high standard. I've got an ear/eye for detail, and genuinely enjoy producing these finely polished wares.
So now I'm in the possession of skills, a lovely little project studio, and I'm in the position of doing what I love for a profession.
I called my enterprise 'Silverman Sound Studios'. Why? Well, an anagram of my full name is "he is a silver man", and this has become my handle, and username on many a website/account/gamertag thingummy. So the Silverman represents me, and the Sound represents everything I do (mainly, but not limited to music), and Studio, 'cause, well, it's a studio... All of that, plus the pleasant alliteration created by three (four?) 'S's, makes a name!
Thanks for reading, and I hope we can work together!

"Throughout our time in the studio, Shane was ever the professional. The success that was our final product was down to the excellent quality he provided which was no doubt down to his expert knowledge of and the obvious enthusiasm he has for sound engineering. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone requiring studio work."
