PRODUCER/MIXER/WRITER/PROGRAMMER/ENGINEERr/MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST

Sean Beavan

Revered for his inspirational work in industrial and metal, he has worked with some of its most influential juggernauts – such as NINE INCH NAILS, MARILYN MANSON, SLAYER, PUSCIFER, FEOTUS and GUNS N ROSES.

His creative pursuit of perfection is matched only by his charming studio-side manner that incubates career defining performances. These unique qualities attract artists from other genres, who value depth of emotion and textured balance in their recordings and mixes – artists like NO DOUBT (where he gave grind to their groove) , CHURCHILL and JILL HENNESSY, to name a few.

With his own band 8mm being one of the most licensed in the business, it was only a matter of time for pioneering film directors to discover and embrace Beavan’s diversely visceral ways. For more info on his powerful FILM SCORING, COMPOSITION and SOUND DESIGN, click HERE

NINE INCH NAILS “Hurt”
“It was just the two of us in the room, sitting side by side. We did three takes, each one was incredible, I remember being in tears most of the time, and I think we just used the third take in it’s entirety. Trent never wanted to do much comping, no single word edits. We always had to use whole phrases so the emotion came through. He believed the voice and the guitars were the human aspects, the emotional touchstones and that they shouldn’t be perfect, they should be honest, to provide a counterpoint to the relentless machinery of the rhythm section.”
