Jon Altschiller

Jon Altschiller is a veteran engineer and producer, and the owner of ‘Chiller Sound.   A long time engineer in the New York music scene, Jon started his career engineering sessions all over town for studio albums, jingles, and commercial work.  Now, from his boutique studio based in New York, Jon continues to record and/or mix various artists, from pop & rock stars (Mandy Moore, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, John Mayer, Simon and Garfunkel) to Jam Band kings (Phish, Dave Matthews Band, The Grateful Dead, Warren Haynes).  Jon also mixes national TV commercials and masters music and music for video games, such as Grand Theft Auto and Midnight Club.

In 2009, Jon reconnected with Phish, with whom he worked in the early ‘90’s on their albums, A Picture of Nectar and Rift. From 2010-2017, the band brought Jon on the road to multitrack record and mix their LivePhish downloads, which they released every night, and to record and mix their live webcasts.  He has also worked on several of the band’s live albums and DVD’s, as well as many live releases for both the Trey Anastasio Band and Mike Gordon’s solo project.

Jon’s philosophy is, “If you want to do anything well, it is imperative that you enjoy the process,” Altschiller says. “Being an engineer is not about the glory. It’s about having the respect of the artists and the people around you.”
