Interview with Omega Level Studios
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I commonly do recording and mixing/mastering services for my clients with the occasional electric guitar session.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am really inspired by Phaeleh and Pentatonix because they bring out so much atmosphere with so little.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I typically immerse myself in other forms of art until something clicks. Just a small idea that could be a riff, drum pattern, or other sound. I then first bring that into reality and the song usually forms around that idea.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I usually bring the main mood to a song. I am best at finding great repeatable harmonies that stick with my listeners. I am also great at coming up with groovy abstract drum patterns.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Mainly abstract hip hop and experimental music.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: BALANCE. I see commonly engineers/artists prefer certain instruments way in the front. There is nothing wrong with having foreground but one sound shouldn't make another sound meek and flimsy in a mix.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: The Weeknd because I enjoy how darkly melodic his music is and he is not afraid to take risks.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Alternative Hip Hop
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I made an instrumental production for my girlfriend that I believe is one of the best pieces I ever composed. I composed, mixed, and mastered the track.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask what type of music they enjoy, make, and basic information about themselves like their favorite color. I do this to try to find the most delicate pieces of their personality so I can create something that resonates with them.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I do everything for free. I'm not out to get rich but I do have a hungry stomach like everyone else.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: "Do you really charge that much?!" When in reality I charge very little compared to other service providers with similar quality. They usually come back once they do some research.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: That I am making something that didn't exist before. I think the reason a lot of 'normal' jobs aren't appealing is because you sit somewhere for eight to twelve hours and nothing is materialized.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: That I will give you the best service I can provide and if for some reason my style doesn't suit you I will attempt to point you to someone who can for a similar charge.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Each have their own pros and cons so why not use both so they can balance each other out? But if I had to pick I would choose analog because of the warmth.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: My rap album that is completely self recorded, mixed, mastered, and produced by Omega Level Studios.
