On Pursuing Weird & Wonderful Work


Valley Village, CA: In the one year since François “Franc” Tétaz moved to Los Angeles from his native Australia, he’s produced, mixed or mastered a few records, scored a few film and art projects, and won a few GRAMMYs. So far so good.

If you don’t recognize this name, you will soon: Tétaz is the engineer/mixer behind Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know” and the full-length album, Making Mirrors – both of which he engineered alongside Wally De Backer (aka Gotye). He’s also worked with Kimbra, the female half of “Somebody That I Used To Know”, and a flourishing pop artist in her own right. Tetaz co-wrote and produced much of Kimbra’s 2011 debut, Vows.
