Interview with Benjamin Hoel
What are you working on at the moment?
I am currently looking for work.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I'm running a Native Instruments Komplete Audio 6 with Cubase LE 6 / Pro Tools 10 HD on an Acer Aspire.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
Kristian Fanavoll Tvedt, Josefin Winther, Lurf, Rob Cavallo, Butch Vig, Niklas Almqvist, David De La Hoz, Damon Albarn
How would you describe your style?
Is it very dull to say that my style adapts to whatever kind of project I work on?
What do you bring to a song?
I work as hard as I can to bring out the dynamics and feel from everything I take part in.
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Kristian Fanavoll Tvedt, Lars Harald L. Elnes
Analog or digital and why?
Live; Analog, because digital consoles are more trouble than they're worth. Studio; Digital, because of the freedom and because it takes up less space.
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
An acoustic guitar. I wouldn't need anything else on a deserted island, would I?
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I've been schooled in music production for four years now, and I am constantly on the lookout for projects to take part in.
Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
That would be my role in the band "How's Annie?", because we all get along very well both musically and as friends. I play drums and sing, and I also co-mixed our EP.
Can you share one music production tip?
Don't look at the knobs. Just listen.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Hardcore and Pop/Rock.
