Interview with Gian Berselli
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I think my first feature that I had to score the entire thing by myself was one of the most memorable ones. Not only I had to do the entire thing in 5 days, but I'm really proud of how I handled it all and how it turned out!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Currenly working on 1 Chinese Feature film, 1 jingle, 3 albums for other artists and my own solo album.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Why not booth? They both serve a purpose
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To help them dig inside their hearts.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I like to inspire people, and weirdly enough that inspires me
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: "Hey bro, can you do it for free? It is good exposure."
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I usually try to get to know them better. Their musical taste, from their personal lives. If I'm helping someone to have a musical voice I need to understand what goes on inside their hearts.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: To have a balance between knowing what you want and being open for suggestions. Having the general vision of what you are looking for is very important when working with another musician, but those who come with a complete fixed idea of what their song should be are not interesting to work with. Collaborations are important and can give birth to amazing projects, so be open to professional opinions, but NEVER let go of what you believe in.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Hahaha, I love this question! Hmm, my Martin for sure, a synthesizer/MIDI controller. a microphone and a computer with VSTs. Wait... That is pretty much all my gear!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been around music since I was 4 years old. As far as my work life I first started as a filmmaker, while having a rock band on the side. After touring in London we decided to split, and I noticed I wanted to follow music full time, but as a composer, not a performing artist. I then started to work as a film composer, but most of my gigs were always songwriting and music production. Today I still do film scores, but I work maily as a music producer for local artists.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: For me is all about the "grey" areas. Real art for me is about subtleties. Never too happy nor too sad. I like to work the layer of emotions that we all have.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Probably Robert Smith. The Cure is one of my biggest inspirations.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: If you are feeling stuck, go for a walk in nature.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Mostly film scores, Pop-Rock ballads, and indie rock.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Delivering songs. Seeing the song as a whole.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: A VERY unique voice. A voice that is my own but always speaks to peoples hearts and emotions
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: For me is all about losing all constraints in the process. If I'm writing with an artist or for a project I like to feel relaxed, happy and inspired. being rested and in positive spirits is everything for me. Music comes naturally when I'm at my best, so for me working on my mental and emotional health is part of my job!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a pretty minimal and mobile setup. I believe in the quality of gear but for me, passion and talent are more important than spending thousands on gear.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I produce artists from scratch, helping them to find their voices and guiding them through the process of making and recording a song.
