Interview with Ido Goldberg
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I don't really have a common type of work. It really varies and is project based. For example, could be soundtracking a movie while working producing a single for an artist where I also play guitar.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Dave Cobb, Daniel Lanois, Paul Epworth, Mark Knopfler, Arvo Part, Jack White, Mark Ronson, Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, Meshell Ndgeocello, Bill Frisel, Bjork and the list goes on...
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My work process really depends on the project and the way the client feels comfortable working. A production would usually start with a mock-up and then go to the next stage of recording/mixing. I'd say, in all projects I spend some time in the beginning to communicate and understand the client's goal and vision.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: When I work on a song a bring to the table my experience, knowledge and sensitivity, I listen to the raw sketch of a song and I make sure it's good enough to stand alone (lyrics - melody - harmony - structure) without any production. Then I try to make it even better while keeping it's greatness and not overproducing. It's all about the song. Not about me.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: for producing, I mainly produce music that's based on recording real instruments. Style - wise, It is mostly rock and American Roots. When I compose for film and media I bring my classical training to the table and that can lead to a whole different style and genre. As an artist and songwriter I make Americana music and as a guitar player I record a vast range of genres. I'd say everything but hardcore jazz.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Figure out what really makes the song (an instrument, a groove, the singer) and make sure you support that throughout the production..
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I welcome you to reach out and discuss your project, no strings attached.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love the versatility of my job and the fact I work with different people from around the world.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I am a big fan of Hybrid recording and mixing. It really offers the best of both worlds.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: At the moment I am working on a movie soundtrack, My own EP and mixing a project I have recorded for a band in Holland.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: The job is done when you are happy with the product.
