Interview with Adrià Gil
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Brian Eno, Brad Woods, Nigel Godrich, Hannes Bieger, Paco Loco, Portishead, Giorgio Moroder, Legowelt, Moderat
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My core is my computer loaded up with crazy apps and plugins. I always route my signals through great converters to the analog domain for compression, EQ and summing to get the mojo. With that very flexible setup I always find time to try new things...and inspire myself.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Once got a project or an idea, talk and talk with client -or myself-. Then record if needed, find sounds or create them from any piece of audio or synth. Finally tweaks and process out-of-the-box. Voilà its done!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: What I most like is to design the sound palette and record/reamp things to really make the difference. I also enjoy arranging and make everything sound as good as possible.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I have a very technical background (studied computer science) that mixes perfect with my artistic experience so I can cover many fields.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Electronic, post-rock, experimental.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Mostly use EQs to 'erase' and not to emphasize too much, specially if digital.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Brian Eno for his experience, artistic vision and production skills.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: When I wrote tracks for myself I would say I make electro-bizarre-pop
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: 4 years now, but always been into music -since I was 14 when I started playing the guitar-.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: MacBook Pro (loaded up), Apollo Twin audio interface, a Shure SM-58 an OP-1 and a Modular Synth.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I can do standard things but you will get the most out of me if we try to do disruptive thinking.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Why do you want to work with me -there's a lot of people out there-?
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: You can't do as many things as you do. I don't pretend to be a guru but always try new approaches when possible.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Beside career, prices and conditions, they ask me who I am. I tell them that they will never know me at all but working together is a good starting point.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Creativity and working with a thing you can't see neither touch.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: You will get my full commitment.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Hybrid. I was born in the computer era, so why don't mix both?
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Not yet but I hope I can do it very soon.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Finishing an EP for Venecia Flúor band.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Las Bistecs. Had a very high impact here in Spain and LATAM not only with music but with 'pop' culture (from an art perspective). I was the music producer.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I usually mix already recorded projects at other studios and sometimes finalize tracks with extra arrangements. Also I spend part of my time finding the sound palette from beats to synths.
