    I mixed 9 songs for Alex so far and they have all been very creative and unique productions. His approach is very musical and he knows how to communicate his ideas with the people involved in a project, while at the same time leaving creative freedom to everyone which makes it a pleasure to work with him.

Interview with Aleksandr Wann

Analog or digital and why?
I am a hands on kind of guy, so analog is my thing. Particularly during the creative process I like to lock in, experiment and shape sounds with analogue equipments. That being said, nowadays budgets are not really there to provide for extensive lists of analogue equipments for most clients and plugins have become real good that you can get great results by working in the box.
Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
One of my recent projects, a discussion on postmodernism from a purely musicological point of view, a series of pieces for piano solo. I composed six pieces, performed by Harry Rylance (Royal Academy of Music). Two of the pieces were used as exam material at the Royal Academy of Music - London [Piano Faculty].
What are you working on at the moment?
Looking for cool new projects to get involved with!
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Martin Merenyi. Martin and I have recently collaborated on a project, I was the producer and he was the mixing engineer. Really talented mixing engineer, we will definitely collaborate again.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
Very honestly I don’t rest until our end product reflect our expectations.
What do you like most about your job?
I think of records as expression of individual style, I like being continuously creative, stimulating the imagination of others through originality and expressiveness.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
Who are you as an Artist?
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Come clean with me!
How would you describe your style?
I am not a huge fan of categorisations. I get inspired by many things not just music: cities, clothes, books, paintings. I just absorb from anything around me.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Electronic, Pop, R&B-Soul, Singer-Songwriter, Soundtracks
What's your strongest skill?
I am Italian, I make one hell of a cup of expresso!
What do you bring to a song?
I try to bring what is necessary, nothing more, nothing less. Really, is all about figuring out what the Artist is about and what is necessary to tell their story. I will probably repeat myself but I think of songs as expression of individual style, I like when the artist has a connection with the music 'cause it create something honest, and this is the only thing I/we can control in the studio.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
The list is too long! Michael Jackson, Radiohead, Amy Winehouse, Philip Glass, Bon Iver these the first five names I could think of..
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
Music production and mixing. Apart from just creating records.
