"I can enjoy a good folk song just on guitar but also a huge stage production in which all individual elements such as artist, band, light, sound, video and stage design come together into a whole. During each production, a festival, a theater or in the studio during a recording, I try to bring out the best in artists. Back to the source: PASSION! This must be reflected in each performance on every sound carrier and in every interview. Whether it's an audience of 25 people in a living room or a festival with 50,000 people in a stadium. "
Eric began his professional career at the age of 18 when he was hired by a large theater-television producer. Later, Eric started his own sound studio where he soon began to advise artists in the field of singing, text perception but also stage presence.
