  • Jim Kaufman is an American born record producer who is also a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, recording artist, mixer, film and television composer, mastering engineer and recording studio owner. Kaufman began playing piano at the age of 5 and later studied music theory at the New School for the Arts and Academics, which was also where he started playing guitar. After a stint in a local Phoenix area band, Projex, he began his professional music career as the guitar player and founding member of the industrial alt metal indie band, Opiate for the Masses. In 2003 he took a job as engineer/studio assistant for Charlie Clouser (ex-Nine Inch Nails). With Clouser, Kaufman assisted on Helmet’s 2004 Interscope Records release Size Matters. In addition, he assisted Clouser on scoring the horror film Saw. After working with Clouser, Opiate for the Masses reconvened in Los Angeles to write and record their full length debut for Warcon/American Voodoo entitled The Spore, which also marked the beginning of Kaufman’s career as a producer. In early 2007, Kaufman composed the score for Josh Eisenstadt’s full length horror film Dark Reel, starring Edward Furlong. While scoring Dark Reel, Kaufman simultaneously produced the first CD of the singer/songwriter Samuel Markus and The Only Ones. In 2005, Kaufman created American Voodoo Records, which was distributed by EMI. In 2006, he became co-owner of the Nashville-based publishing company, The Song Factory, along with his father, Jim Kaufman, Sr. and Jennifer Johnson. Jim Kaufman presently owns and operates recording studios in both Los Angeles, California, and Sedona, Arizona. (en)
