Interview with Michael Rose
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: It's gonna be special!
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing, Mastering, Recording
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I like to work with the texture and give the song that special feeling, meaning. I like to present something in the way it was not presented before, try to move boundaries. That of course requires the clients to be open-minded.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Producing, Mixing
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: It has gotta be full through the whole song and it's gotta feel right.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Martin Gore (Depeche Mode) for his perfect feel and work with the space in his electronic music. Radiohead for their bold ideas. Muse for them just being crazy, brazen souls :P
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Talk the concept through and making things clear in particular, finding out how much freedom i have and then...making it of course!
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I work best with the artist that are stuck on that one song and want to experiment, find something new for themselves. That really opens up that creativity channel and gives them new perspective.
Q: How would you describe your style?
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Guitar, Piano, Computer, Audio Interface, Microphone is all i need :)
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is your point, what do you want to say with your music? Ready to make some changes? Would you like to sound special?
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: "How much?" *laughing* I always answer: "Show me what you got!"
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: It all started with piano lessons when i was i child and slowly evolved into playing guitar and trying out my ways to make music on the computer. It's been 8 years now of mixing and producing, and about 10 of playing guitar.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Apart from the professionalism, it's gotta be a person that you feel comfortable just being in the same room with. If you are on the same page emotionally and he also obtains professional skill, you both will make a good record.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I guess most of the time even musicians don't really know what it is like to be there on the other side making that computer magic happen. The biggest misconception would be that you can make a great record out of the bad recording. If you want to sound great then you really have to sound great!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Immersing with that cloud of sounds, really trying to make a record that makes you feel something, just from that special texture.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I think 21st century is not the time to ignore either of them. Digital makes you work faster, where analog gives that warms to it all.
