Interview with The Boom

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

  2. A: 8 years. Started in Moscow in the small studio with SSL AWS9000 and somehow came in US and found Cleartrack Studio that was offering advanced engineering course, after i took a course - chef engineer Mike Jhonson called me up to join a team.

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

  4. A: Life and presence. Clarity and volume.

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

  6. A: Listen to a raw bounce of the mix and getting some details and trying to shape it up

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

  8. A: Timbaland. Dr. Dre, Danjahandz.

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

  10. A: Most common work i do is mixing and editing, sometimes adding new sounds in the song or even replace existing ones.

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

  12. A: I think it was Consuelo Costin. Because it was complicated project to mix with 100 tracks in it and when i finally finished mixing and "mastering" client sent track to Ted Jensen to master the whole album - Consuelo liked my version of mastering better and Ted said some good words about that track too.

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

  14. A: Mixes.
