Interview with Red Door Studio
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Producer of my own band "Lilith's Breed" and a local band called Darkest Horizon, I did the entire production on those albums
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: both because it combines the best features of both worlds
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I only stop working when everyone is happy with the result
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Creating cool music with great musicians
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Just get in touch and ask for a quote, I am happy to provide you with samples of my work as soon as the albums are released
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My handbuilt 7 string, Mesa amp and cab and two crates of never emtpying beer
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: My career plan was becoming a sound engineer since I was 16 years old, I then did some research and eventually went to Uni in Guildford, UK to study Music and Sound Recording. During this course I managed to get a placement at Kohlekeller Studio in Germany. We still collaborate to this day.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Punchy and dark
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: don't stop moving forward
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: All heavy stuff, I specialise in all kinds of heavy metal, rock, core, grind, deep, dark and evil music
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Turning cool ideas into smashing tracks
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring my own idea and experience to the songs. In my opinion one often looses the subjective perspective to get the absolute best out of a song, this may be simple details like struming a chord instead of shredding it. I listen to heavy stuff pretty much my whole (more or less adult) life and have a clear idea of the sound my customers want.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually start recording drums before moving on to guitars. I edit as we go to immediately get the best result. The vocals follow the bass. Once this is done I mix one song for the client and as soon as this one is approved I mix the other songs. I finish my work once everyone is fully satisfied with the sound.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: professional mixing room with guitar/vocal booth
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: European metal is my personal favourite, I collaborate with the famous Kohlekeller Studio
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Full music production or just reamping, pretty much anything to make your tracks slam!
