Interview with Dimitris Giannoulis

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: The composion and production of a contemporary music piece in the style of Hans Zimmer for a Nollywood/Hollywood feature film called "MUNA" that is going to air in the early 2019. The production behind this film is really big and professional. It was an honor to be a part of it.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Sound designing of a short film that is going to be released later in the year.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Not yet.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Digital everything (except instrument recordings - when you can do them, do them) but analog mastering. Everything gets that analog feel and warmth when is being processed through analog gear in the mastering process. In the whole other process there is no reason in going fully analog. In most cases it's only a time waster of the actual creative process.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: The job is only finished when we both are 100% satisfied.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: All the creative process my mind is forced to go through.

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: Clients always ask me for references of my previous works that I gladly show. Some of them are asking for a reference in the exact same style. My answer is usually " The productions I showed you are a good example of my sound and capabilities in music production. If I work on your project, I will surely try my best for your style so that I can have an additional reference next time".

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: I always try to be clear on what I can and will do beforehand. So, no serious misconceptions.

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: - Do you have any references on what you want for your production? - How much am I allowed to creatively produce the song.

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: There are many types of producer. Always ask about the producer's style, influences, if you need creative assistant or not and of course always have references to what you actually go for.

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: 1.PC/MAC 2.FOCAL monitors 3.MK3 Komplete Keyboard 4. My audio interface 5. a mic

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: I have been composing and producing from a really young age. My first payed jobs started from 2013. I also have commercial releases of my productions and compositions.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: Alternative pop, commercial, with a bit of everything.

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  30. A: If you really can't fit something into a production, it's probably a mistake in the orchestration process. Try re-arranging or choosing a different sound.

  31. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  32. A: Mainly commercial music genres and also cinematic productions and sound designing.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: I would say my strongest skill is orchestration and commercial vision of a song. I can spot both good and bad elements in a composition. I can then enhance the good once and eliminate the bad ones.

  35. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  36. A: I believe that each production has a story. A story has a begging and an ending. I always start by clearing the image of what the story of my production is going to be and how I am going to tell that story. Who it is for, what emotion it should bring. I believe that music productions are alive in a way and that's what I always try to achieve.

  37. Q: What's your typical work process?

  38. A: This first and hardest part of my work process is before I actually start working on it. I spend hours listening to my given tracks and thinking of what it would make this song a hit. I search for good and bad parts. I think of ways to enhance the good parts and eliminate or hide the bad ones. Once this is done, everything else is just a matter of time. I then start orchestrating, re-arranging, editing and mixing. I never deliver unfinished or bad works, that's my work ethic.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: The creative process is being done in my home studio. I then take everything to my university's professional studio (see link: http://en.labmat.music.uoa.gr/studio/photos.html ). I mainly orchestrate my songs with virtual instruments from NI (Komplete Ultimate 12). When recording is needed I take it to the studio.

  41. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  42. A: Timbaland, illmind, Charlie Puth, Bruno Mars.

  43. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  44. A: Creative Producing, Orchestrations, Compositions, remixes and rearrangements.
