    Working with Zefan was the most MAGICAL carpet ride. He took my love song and brought it to LIFE, adding the magic I needed but did not know existed.

    Listening to our track on repeat, I’m taken to a whole new world each time. Who wouldn’t fall in love with the beautiful string arrangements and delicate details of the entire orchestra?

    Zefan is undeniably kind and talented, his passion for music reflected in every piece he touches. I highly recommend working with him on your next project.

    Zefan is an exceptional Music Producer/ Arranger. I had to submit one a song in a Japanese gospel song competition in Japan. I decided to have my song arranged in a J Pop style. There is only one Producer I know that I can trust my songs with Full Production and arrangement that is versatile. That's Zefan! He is a phenomenal Music Producer/ Arranger who's arrangements are highly commercial, uniquely innovative in sound. I highly recommend Zefan. I look forward to working with Zefan again!

    Its awesome to work with Zefan again. He asked me to add oriental elements with Chinese traditional instruments for one of his music projects. His job guidelines were very clear and so easy to follow. Will definitely work again soon!

    Zefan,
    Is an gifted, talanted and amazing producer / arranger. He went above and beyond my expectations i had for this song. I truly appreciate his professionalism and attention to detail. The arrangement and production of this project was so musically impactful full of dynamic range. It was everything i've imagined and more. Zefan knew exactly what this song needed and he came through big time. I highly recommend Zefan for your next project!

    Mr. Zefan is really a genius! Just by listening to his music in 2 minutes, I can feel that I am in Disneyland already. The string arrangement is extraordinary! He took care of the big lines, but even the small details are exhilarating and impeccable. Working with a music producer like Zefan is definitely a wonderful experience for me. He is
    so friendly, communicative, and does what he says he will do. Hope I will get a chance to work with him in the future!

    Second project with Zefan is a challenging traditional music instrument Japanese style song, he understands the references tracks accurately and the final production is amazingly good. I know he's good at making touching ballad but I'm impressed that he also shows high professional skills in Asian traditional style songs! Cannot wait for more future corporation! The Best!

    So much fun coming onto Zefan's project, he had a wonderful idea for an anti-bullying themed song for kids which I was honored to be a part of. An empowering and fun musical message on a topic that needs awareness -- so excited to hear how it turns out!

    Working with Zefan has been really awesome. He worked on my first single called "Pergi," which theme is ballad, in pop genre coloured with a touch of accoustic vibes and simple orchestration. In this project, Zefan caould brilliantly translate my ideas into real music. When I told him about my ideas and how I wanted the song to be, he understood completely and arranged the music to be even better than what I actually had in mind! He's also a very professional person. He's honest, responsible, reliable, and it was such a fun experience working with him.

Interview with Zefan Susanto

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

  2. A: Sure! My tips is just two, for the production team: the most important things is to be clear in front. In terms of delivering job description to your production team member, having a clearly achievable vision of the production and also be able to maintain a good inter-relation element during the production process. and for the client: Understand the need, some of them may not easy to deliver a clear description of the project. A producer responsibility is to capture the big idea and communicate intensively with the client to get a satisfying result both for the producer and the client :)

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

  4. A: I work on a lot of pop orchestra music, some jazzy stuff and some epic theme also :)

  5. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  6. A: I will said that my strongest skill is to give a romance & intimate strings arrangement into a ballad song :)

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

  8. A: I will asked about demo/draft of the song that you want me to produce, together with 3 references how you would like your song sound alike. I will made a simple mockup to give a brief idea about theme, melody, intro/ending, chord progression and song repetition format. This is usually in the form of solo piano with one lead instrument. After getting approval from the client I will develop the foundation of the song mainly for bass, guitar and drum, then I will give the client next mockup. The last process is giving it orchestra colour (if needed) and the final instrumental music production will be delivered after this step :)

  9. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  10. A: My studio setup is quite simple. Running on Mac mini i7 with 16GB ram 1TB SSD and 5TB of sound library. I use Apogee Duet 2 as my interface and M-Audio Keystation 88es as my controller :)

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

  12. A: I work for singer, songwriter, instrument player, and anyone who need my services :)
