About

Patric Favreau

Do you see the photo above? To me, it's one of the most beautiful sights in the world 😉

I have a passion for sound (and equipment), and I strive to stay informed about the latest developments in the field, such as Atmos, new plugins, and to draw inspiration and learn from sound engineers and producers through readings, masterclasses, and training.

I love audio for picture, whether it's in the realm of cinema, etc., but I have a particular preference for music. I enjoy rock, pop, alternative, country, jazz, gospel, bluegrass, R&B, and metal. I find my happiness when projects are diverse.
