Michael loves music but he loves creating it even more.
In January 2013 Michael started his business, Miek Wave Sound Lab in the Austin/San Marcos, Texas area. Michael offers a wide range of services for his clients that includes music recording, audio engineering, piano lessons, music licensing, soundtrack services, pattern sequencing, and soundtrack production.
Michael has educated himself on the latest technology and audio solutions for just about anyone in the music and entertainment industry. Though he intends to hire an employee in the near future, he currently puts his considerable talents to work as a “one-man shop.” He teaches music and piano, produces soundtracks and records voice-overs and music for clients.
The loan Michael received allowed him to purchase a stage piano for live shows, system upgrades for his cinematic computer system, new microphones and a new mixer. All these items were found by Michael at a discounted price because many of them were second-hand. Michael understands the importance of stretching a dollar and doing research to find the best used items he can possibly find.
Without help from Accion Texas Inc., Michael would have not been able to purchase the items for his business. He plans to continue working with many artists in the Austin area and begin producing more, with the goal of one day licensing certain productions and earning full rights for each project he completes.
