Interview with Rebymel
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Anastacia because I was lucky enough to meet her and she's a warrior and a down to Earth woman with a big heart and an incredible artist. She's been an inspiration for me since I was a teenager and I can feel from her lyrics and her songs that we have something in common.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog for the old school music makers and digital for the new generations.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Creativity, expressing myself
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Ideas come to me suddenly. It might be a melody that I start humming. Or I might get inspiration from a catchy instrumental refrain or sample. Once I choose the tempo, the key and the chords, I write the lyrics. I play the song some time to bland the voice with the piano. I record it and while I play the acoustic version back, I think about the arrangement and if some background vocals could fit in. If so, I proceed recording the other instrumental or vocal tracks. I usually like to have all the tracks sounding clearly and naturally, but I sometimes use some effect, too. Last two steps are tracks automation and sound mixing. The audio mixdown is finally ready to play. (I maybe missed some passage.)
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop rock
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I'm especially proud of my latest personal project 'I'm Here' (Acoustic Piano Version) because it really represents me right now. It's a sum up of all the process and progress I've done so far. For the first time, I can say that I've done all by myself. From the song lyrics to the sound mixing. It's a big achievement for me.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been doing this since I was a young girl. I wrote my first lyrics when I was 12. I recorded my first original song at 20 years old. I attended a music school for 6 years. I was hired as a singer (soloist or member of the choir) in many classical operas. I was a vocalist in 2 rock cover bands for a total of 6 years. I traveled abroad and worked as a co-songwriter in some musical projects.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop, Cubase, microphone, keyboards, external audio interface. My basic equipment for my recordings.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Just one? Ok so.... creating.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: If you can feel that thrill when you have a new idea, never give up on it until your song is ready.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Original, expressive, communicative, moving.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on developing my skills and learning something new. it keeps me motivated.
