Josh Plotner

Recording Artist. Multi-Instrumentalist. Composer/Arranger.

New York-based performer, recording artist, composer, arranger, and multi-woodwind specialist.

Studio Recording

It might be hard to carry an orchestral woodwind section.

It could be tricky to convince your favorite saxophonist to bring alto, tenor, and bari sax, as well as flute, clarinet, and bass clarinet into the studio to record the woodwind section on your new big band chart. 

But it's not hard to do when you have a professional home studio.

Tracks are almost always delivered within 48 hours, usually on the same day. Satisfaction guaranteed. Josh offers competitive rates and prices each session on a case-to-case basis. Please fill out the form on the Contact Page for a rate sheet and more information.

Contracting

In addition to remote woodwind recording, Josh has a unique and ever-growing list of musicians for remote contracting. What started as asking a friend for help finishing a project has turned into a huge network of recording artists across the world.

Whether it’s a full orchestra, big band, or unusual traditional instrument, Josh’s network of musicians encompasses almost every ensemble a composer could need. When all the details are taken care of, a composer can focus on music, not logistics.
