Interview with Kayvive
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Typically, i get the framework of the song from my clients, it can be a rough idea or a voice note, lyrics etc..... After getting the framework,i try to understand and as well interpret the music considering various factors which includes the content/message of the song, the genre, the marketable demands, technical know how, the clients vocal style and preference etc.... This when i then build the song structure etc with note taking for effectiveness taking note of every detail. Once I'm done understanding and interpreting the song with a clear cut song structure, I start the creation process where i bring in all the musical instruments essential to the style of music we're working on. Once we have the instrumental music for the song, I'd send the instrumental file to the Vocalist or Client for review, rehearsal and recording. Once this is done and the vocals has been recorded, the client will send the vocal track to me which i will add back to the music, I'd then mix and master the song professionally to a radio quality commercial track. All through the production process, i take my time in listening to my client to achieve what they have in mind and to possible help them to achieve more than they've ever dreamed with their song. I deliver the final production in wave and mp3 format. I can also send the instrumental track or the mix stems if required. You'd have 3 reviews for free and other reviews will cost $15 per review.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: There was a time, a client wanted me to produce her song(off soundbetter). She's only good at writing with no knowledge of music. She does not understand melody, harmony, time etc yet she's almost unwilling to accept my ideas. Somehow i convinced her enough and she allowed me interpret the song Professionally. Once we were done with the project, she sent me a message and told me how much she loved the song. She also said i was God sent... Why I'm so proud of this project is that she only had good lyrics but i was able to produce amazing music from the lyrics, something she eventually became so proud of.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm presently producing a soft rock song for a client off Soundbetter. Its a nice song and I'm almost done with the tracking of the needed instruments.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Yes. His name is Christopher Galovan
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital..... For a younger generation like me, we often prefer Digital. Without controversy, it makes production a lot easier. Edit and review is so easy compared to Analog.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: With a full assurance, i can guarantee my client that I'd deliver a good job, set for radio play and every form of commercial purpose. I pursue excellence with all of me and i can guarantee you that in my productions.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: One of the things i love most about my work is that it is a always a joyful and creative adventure. It is not boring. I don't have to subject myself to a boring routine. Also, it helps me to engage with different culture. I remember the first time i produced for a client from China though I've never been there(we met online). It was a typical Chinese song such that i had to go online to study about their Music and a bit of their language. The project was such a success and the Client keeps coming ever since.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Usually they say, " I love your samples, can also produce my song? And my response is a capital Yes...
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception is to see a musically untrained and inexperienced client, telling you what's best for the song without trying to listen or yield to your professional advice.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I often ask them, " Do you have an idea of what you want, even if its faint? "
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I'd advice any potential customers to be open to creative and essential ideas. I'm a Professional in my field and i'm creative. I know whats going on in the music world and the music market at large. So if a customer wants to hire me, i must prepare your mind that i would advise you based on all the factors i mentioned above in actualizing the best interest of the song.
