Online Session Cello

Remote Cello Sessions

I record remote cello sessions from my studio in West London.  With over 10 years experience tracking cello remotely I’ve recorded for bands, feature and short films, documentaries, adverts, prime time TV dramas and AAA games

I’ve premiered works by Sir John Tavener (live on Radio 3) and Lorne Balfe (as a duet with the composer).

Film and media composers I have recorded for include Eve Klein, Henry Lai, Ian Honeyman, Ian Livingstone, James O’Connell, Jerome Leroy, Lindsay Wright, Matt Norman, Michael Maidment, Mike Jennings, Paul O’Brien, Peter Linn, Peter Nickalls, Philip Guyler, Robin Schlochtermeier, Romain Paillot, Sarah Warne, Segun Akinola, Shie Rozow, Stephen Barton, Thom Robson and Tristan Noon. All this on productions for EMI, Universal, BMG, and BBC, Channel 4, Sky, Creative Assembly, Warner Brother, EA Games and many others.

I’ve also performed live at many leading UK festivals from Glastonbury, Green Man and Kendal Calling to London Jazz Festival at The Barbican and as part of the BBC Proms at the Victoria and Albert Museum – and internationally in venues including Sydney Opera House, Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, Prospect Park in NYC, NRJ in the Park in Munich, Esplanade Park in Singapore and Rock in Roma in Italy among many others.

The cello is recorded in Cubase with an AKG C414 microphone through a Focusrite ISA pre-amp into an RME audio interface in an acoustically treated room.

  1. Janet Overfield

    I asked Matt to record a gentle, nostalgic melody for a library track. It was important that the cello line really sang out but remained understated. Matt delivered the exact nuance that I wanted, first time. Turnaround was quick, efficient and professional, I couldn’t have asked for more! His playing is brilliant and I really look forward to working with him again.

  2. I came to Matt because I needed experimental cello sounds for some trailer tracks. The recordings came out perfectly and they’ve really elevated my tracks to the next level. I couldn’t have made these tracks without Matt’s skills! He was lovely to work with and very flexible when it came to dreaming up strange techniques and sounds! I hope we can work together again soon.

  3. Emmett Cooke

    Matt created the perfect cello FX that I was looking for. He worked incredibly fast and provided more than was asked of him. Will work with him again!

  4. What can i say? I just listened the demo of an arrangement that Matt did for our band.
    I have no words to explain the sensation i felt.
    He has done something really amazing, a perfect structure, intertwining of sublime sounds, shrewdness in balancing each musical sentence. A masterpiece. I will never stop thanking our producer Steve Lyon for introducing us Matt.

  5. Excellent work! Great service and top playing. Thank you so much!

  6. Matt is very easy to work with and above that a great cellist – he understands what the music needs, and even the most basic minimal parts are performed with just the right emotion and feel.

  7. Little Brother David

    Matt did fantastic work for me – lovely lovely parts that were sensitive to the modd and emotion of the song – stood out amongst all the session musicians I worked with. Top class.

  8. Matt is not only a great Cellist, he is also a true professional. I hired him for some Cello work for my self produced album here in America. Despite being miles across the Atlantic and my being musically illiterate, Matt was able to instruct me on how to send him my song so that he could put his Cello overtop my track. To hear the track it sounds as if I had him in the studio with me. If I ever needed Cello work, I would go to him exclusively. Thanks Matt!

  9. Matt is a true talent. I booked him for a recording session and I love the sound and atmosphere he brought to my songs. He has a wonderful musical ear for melody and true feeling that will add emotion and movement to your songs. I can’t wait to play with him again!

  10. Patricia P. Alvarez

    Matt is a wonderful musician. His cello performances are always beautiful and very expressive. The sound of his cello is warm and silky and the quality of his recording are excellent. He is very professional and delivered the recordings quickly. Thank you Matt for your recordings!

  11. Tudor Moore

    Matt has delieverd beyond my expectations. Wonderful playing, beautifully captured and turned-around very quickly – it’s like he read my mind!
    Matt will be my go-to cellist and arranger from now on.

    Thank you!

  12. Kim Eliz Collins

    I’m really grateful to Matt for his excellent cello work and professional manner. His contribution has really enhanced one of my compositions and I look forward to working with him again in the future. Thanks Matt!

  13. Es un gran profesional y un gran sesionista, un placer haber trabajado con el, rapidez, calidad, una maravilla.

  14. Francisco Liberia Bellot

    Matt Constantine is an excellent cellist! He has done a great job with my composition. Very professional and work with it online is very effective and always get what you have in mind. Thank you very much for your work!

  15. I recently used Matt to record a cello part for a TV commercial. He turned around the part quickly and it sounded wonderful…he listened to what I wanted and got it right the first time. I look forward to working with him a gain.

  16. Matt’s playing is beautiful. He is very professional and friendly to work with online. He has played the cello melody exactly the way I imagined it in my head. Thank you so much for your time and work. :O)
