Charllotte

Charllotte Karlstedis a vocalist and songwriter of German-Swedish origin living inAmsterdam since 1998. Here she studied jazz-vocals at the famous local Conservatory. During her studies, she also went to Sweden where she explored Swedish Shepard-music and Scandinavian Folk. These influences gave her an own sound and her music the final touch.
Right now she is collaborating with Dutch music-wonders and producers Wilco Koster andDave Sahanaja. This has already resulted into Charllotte’s latest album, that mainly contains her original music with a blend of English, Swedish and German lyrics. The sold-out release of this self-titled CD took place on the 10th of April 2016 in Amsterdam in front of a very enthousiastic audience.

My Cozy Homestudio

I have always been involved and interested in sound and how to get something to sound “good”. 
For me it al started when I was 16 years old and experimented with a tascam 4 track casetterecorder. I have learned a lot on old analog consoles, both live and in the studio.
Now a days its unbelievable how much things have improved. It is a great era for the creative minded. All you need is a decent computer and an audio interface to make great sounding music productions.

My gear of choice is a mac mini i7 with 16GB of RAM.
I have a Focusrite saffire liquid 56 audio interface.
My monitorsystem is an M-Audio BX5 d2 with the M-Audio BX subwoofer.
I use a Behringer DEQ 2496 ultracurve to tune the speakers to the room.


other gear i use:
roland TD-11 drumskit
Studiologic Numa Compact digital piano
Radial enginering DI's
SE Audio mic's
Audio Technica mic's
Toft preamp
Focusrite preamps

Vision

It is said that music is a universal language. I subscibe to that thought. I see much in common between spoken languages and music. In the end both are air in motion. Spoken languages speak from mind to mind.Music speaks from heart to heart.
Yet in our western society we approach music different from language. As a child we learn to speak by listening and mimicking the sounds we hear our parents and our surroundings make. Then after a view years we go to school and there we are taught what it is we are speaking and what the rules are. Then we learn to read and write.
In music education we somehow turn this order around. First we are explained the rules and we are taught how to read, then we learn how to „speak”.In my opinion this is upside down. Listening and playing by ear should be addressed first. In my lessons I emphasise this. Knowledge of music theory is only then important if the player is able to „speak”. Technique is only a means to an end and not a goal in it’s self. I do believe that knowledge of harmony and theory makes a good player great, but as is in spoken language;
