Interview with Ken Vanoff

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

  2. A: I produce a lot of music. Honestly. problem is that most of the music that produce is owned by a Private Company. I can go up and pick stuff like pop music or deep house or go down and grab some Dirty analog beat. You name it! I also mix some of the stuff that I produce. This only happens tho when I have a clear vision of what I want the song to sound like.

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

  4. A: Wow ! theres a lot of great music out there, that I don't even know where to start. Top 3? Geoff Barrow Thom Yorke. ...

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: First Pro Tools or Ableton? I can drive both. Manley Core Pre. Neumann mic, 3 Pais of monitors, Analog Synths, Tape Machine + Lots of F talent.

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

  8. A: I start with the core, the root of the song. Every song has one. Once I have a solid idea of where the song is coming from I build around it.

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

  10. A: Passion. A lot of passion.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

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

  28. A: How fast ? How much space do I have to build? Where is this song coming from?

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

  30. A: you are not a successful producer if you don't have a hit. Do what you do because you love it. Yes yes yes you need to eat too, but trust me music will pay off if you work hard.
