The sound that your project deserves!
Over 12 years of experience in writing/producing music. I don't really have a main genre. I like everything from Jingles to EDM bangers. I play the guitar and the piano and I know a thing or two about music theory. I also know that sometimes you have to "break the rules" in order to produce something unique and fresh.
I'm looking for jobs as a producer/composer. I have tons of music waiting for a release.
I also sell licences to some of my music on Audiojungle. It is not a big source of income, but it has allowed my music to be heard by hundreds of thousands of people in different commercials. You can check out my stock music portfolio here: http://musicexpert.net/
I like to think that I have my own style and sound. I don't like to copy other artists style, but I do get inspiration from them. Please don't ask me to copy other songs, but you can send them to me as a type of sound you're looking for.

Interview with WHEREISMACO
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I also sell licenses to some of my music on Audiojungle. On of my songs got used in a British jewelry company, Gemoria's online advertisement video. It has reached houndreds of thousands of people. I'm really proud of that achivement.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Nothing big right now. I need new challenges!
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I'm new here, so not yet. But I'm checking out the competition.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Use everything you have on hand.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: That I will do my very best on your project. If I feel like I can't fulfill your wishes then I will rather turn down the job than accepting it and making something I'm not proud of.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Unfortunately it is not my full time job yet(!), but I really love the process, the struggles, the figuring out what should go here parts.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Can you do this for free? It will be good exposure for your music. Well I value my skills and song to say no to this kind of offers. But if I see the potential I might say yes
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I (or We, the producers) press a button and music makes itself.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Mood. Genre. Song samples also help but not necessary. But still, getting a free hand is the best.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Check background and previous work first. If you like them thats great. If you don't.. well I'm not sure.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: It depends. Is there electricity?
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been doing music for over 12 years. Started with learning how to play the guitar, then the piano. Then I got interested in producing. I'd love if I could work in the music industry as a producer full time.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Sometimes fast, sometimes slow. Sometimes sad, sometimes happy.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: So many.. But if I have to choose.. I really love Skrillex's work. I think we could do something awesome together. But I look up to many musicians I'd like to work with. Who knows what tomorrow brings..
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Learn the basics. Learn music theory. Learn an instrument. It opens up countless new ways for you to produce new music so there will be less chance for burning out. Sometimes I try to produce an EDM song and end up with a piano instrumental. I think it is important that you don't chain yourself to just 1 or 2 genres.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I'm repeating myself but I really don't have a main genre I'm working in. I like challenges.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Hmm. Maybe that I know music theory. I know what chords I am using and what scales could go with it. I also come from playing Blues and it can be noticed in a lot of my songs.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Everything. I like to work alone on instrumentals. I like to think that I have my own style/sound. Every track is different.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Pick up the guitar or sit to the piano and try to come up with an original melody. Sometimes I reverse the process and start with a beat.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Changing and upgrading all the time. But the only thing I really need is a MIDI keyboard, decent monitors/headphone and a computer to begin writing music.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: There are a lot of musicians who inspire me. It'd be a huge list. I get inspiration from everywhere.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: It is very rare for me to work for a client. I wrote songs for local businesses online commercials, but I'm still looking for bigger projects I can work on.
