Interview with Suzana Trifkovic

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

  2. A: Collaboration with Rupesh Nidhi on his new single "Vision of Gyanganj" and then EP "Valley of Dreams" as well. My role was songwriter and producer on both, but also backing vocal on his EP. It was my dream come true. We combined Sanskrit mantras with piano and strings, also piano and orchestra, which is very unusual and I believe we are the first in the world creating such songs. I didn't hear anything like that before. The way music was composed by me, produced and then Rupesh's vocal recorded, everything was extremely unusual and not yet done in music industry. It was collaboration of two artists from different countries set miles away and all that makes me very proud of those projects.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Digital. It's 21st century.

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

  6. A: I'll be honest with you and do my best.

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

  8. A: Helping other people express their emotions and messages through my lyrics and music.

  9. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  10. A: Can I get lyrics within a few hours? Sure, if speed comes before quality.

  11. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  12. A: Some people think writing lyrics or making music is like cooking, little bit of this, little bit of that, stir and ready within minutes.

  13. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  14. A: Laptop, camera, midi keyboard, microphone and headphones.

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

  16. A: Some painful events in my life brought very strong emotions 7 years ago, and I shaped those emotions into music and lyrics. Then started writing lyrics for others and finally to produce music for other artists as well.

  17. Q: How would you describe your style?

  18. A: Unique, everlasting and emotional.

  19. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  20. A: I always dreamed about working with Rupesh Nidhi, that was my biggest wish and that collaboration actually happened recently.

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

  22. A: Cinematic, instrumental, easy-listening, background, meditation, lo-fi music.

  23. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  24. A: Sharp mind.

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

  26. A: Uniqueness for sure, through romantic note, social message, relaxation or stimulation, depending on client's wish.

  27. Q: What's your typical work process?

  28. A: I like to write down all the emotions and messages that song should send to those who listen and then I just take midi keyboard, open DAW and thinking about those emotions start playing and that's where magic happens, my heart opens up, fingers follow and the new song is born. After that goes polishing up, small changes, variations, recording other instruments and so on.

  29. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  30. A: Very simple and modest, laptops, a couple of DAWs, midi keyboard, microphones and headphones.

  31. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  32. A: At the moment I don't see much quality in music industry. Sadly almost everyone makes what sells fast, not what lasts long.

  33. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  34. A: I compose and produce music giving final product ready for distribution, along with written lyrics (if they want lyrics as well). They just need to record vocals as another layer.

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

  36. A: Make it to last.

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

  38. A: Working on my new album.

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

  40. A: What's your goal? What emotion you want to grow in your audience? What message you want to send?

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

  42. A: Be honest, explain what your target is, do you want quality that lasts or something that shoots high for the moment.
