Interview with Juan C. Martinez

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

  2. A: My band XICLON is my pride and joy. Not only is it a cultural identification of who I am both personally and as an artist, but it's also an amalgamation of everything I've picked up over my career.

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

  4. A: Working on developing a solid foundation for my new band, XICLON, as well as writing/producing for various independent Latin artists.

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: Either. The character is in the art, not the method.

  7. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  8. A: I promise to always feed the art, not the ego.

  9. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  10. A: I love being able to meet, work with, and learn from fellow artists/creatives.

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

  12. A: Why is this project important to you? How does this identify or add to your story as an artist?

  13. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  14. A: If you can, spend some time finding a provider that truly understands and resonates with the vision you have for your work.

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

  16. A: My original career path was film/video production until about 2015 when I realized I had a knack for understanding music not just in a technical way, but also in an artistic way.

  17. Q: How would you describe your style?

  18. A: Modern, meticulous, and intentional.

  19. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  20. A: Serve the song/artist, not yourself!

  21. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  22. A: My experience has primarily been in Latin genres ranging from cumbia and norteño (Mexican) to latin rock and alternative.

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

  24. A: A holistic perspective and approach to the process. Whether I'm fully producing or just recording an instrument or two, I work to serve the song and artist, never myself.
