Interview with Carl Seanté
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Bruno Mars & ZEDD. Bruno Mars represents a very flexible talent that doesn't mind working in any genre that the song represents. ZEDD feels like he can be the Quincy Jones of EDM Pop. I love his approach and his harmonic takes on music that would normally be over-simplified.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Learning to emulate is first stage to creating something new, ironically. Which is a play on the phrase "you don't know where you're going to until you've understand from whence you came."
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Mixture of Stevie Wonder & Kanye West.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Electronic Music within the genres of Urban, Hip-Hop, Pop, EDM, Broadway and Parody.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is providing a full-fledge production for even the most basic idea.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a dynamic mixture of Top40, Jazz & Broadway-esse way thought to a production. My style offers a refreshing broad view on typical styles, Harmonically speaking, I tend to begin with the basics for what the song needs and then I begin interpreting ways to take it in a slightly new direction while preserving the initial idea.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I've been known to work with as early of ideas as a voice memo to completed songs needed for remix. I can write/produce to no lyrics (gibberish) or even begin with a "feel" in mind if needed.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Mackie DL32R Console (iPad Controlled) Avalon VT 747sp Vacuum Tube Stereo Preamplifier Manley VoxBox Vocal Preamplifier Universal Audio 6176 Tube Preamp & 1176 LN Limiting Amp Logic Pro X
