I am always attentive to the way of feeling that the musician transmits and captures very well the musical intentions
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: A very important tip for music producers is: Produce musical creations that fit your client, do not impose their ideals, always accept a way of thinking and feeling the music even if it is a different form of your The work is always for the client and not for the music producer :-)
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I've worked with several artists and being instrumentalist of a well-known name of music is no longer my goal. I want to dedicate myself totally to making musical productions and studio works
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I come from the old school of music! I really like acoustic sonority but I always prefer to be open-minded for joints of different sounds as long as they are adapted to a musical purpose. I mix jazz with afro, pop with rock, balladas with R & B and I always use what the song asks for. So I do not close the doors to what is modern.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've always been a musician, I've never had another profession! Work making arrangements for orchestras, groups, singers, films, videos and theaters.

I love what I do !

Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Before hiring a professional, check out his career and his musical work onlne!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I always ask if the customer has a link with the sound they would like to have or if they have any reference for me to listen to before they start work. I always ask for clues with metronome, tonality indication, and the format in which I want the work to be delivered
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The wrongdoing almost does not happen but when it happens it is for lack of dialogue and understanding. For example: I did a job for a client and he loved the job ... the next day he came back asking to make changes because his friend had suggested other things and he changed his mind because of his friend's influence This is very boring !
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Clients ask different things, but the most recurring questions are: Price Time I read to finish the job If I authorize full use of my work Akguns want to know if the labor price includes the rights to use the work and if I want to receive the royalties I am very flexible in the negotiations but I demand that the platform closely follow the whole process because, boring and unhappy customers will exist throughout life ... I am lucky to see my clients coming back and buying new jobs every time!
