Interview with Deepest Sea

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

  2. A: I'm particularly proud of touring with Imperial Triumphant, doing live sound for them. They're incredible musicians with a super clear vision of their music; they challenged me asking to do certain things in a different way from my usual, and I'm proud of having understood and worked my way to it. Now I'm a better engineer than the one I was before working with them.

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

  4. A: I'm producing a new recording with Tons and in the meanwhile I'm mastering Blue Lies' debut album.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: My longtime friend Paul Beauchamp. He's a talented musician, an expert engineer and an amazing human being.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Both worlds have their pros and their cons, I choose how to work depending on the job. Basically if it sounds good, it's good.

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

  10. A: That I'm 100% open to their inputs and suggestions. I may have my ideas, but in the end is their music on what I'm working on.

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

  12. A: My favourite part of the job is learning new stuff, exchanging ideas with clients or colleagues. Experience is what makes us work better.

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

  14. A: That I'm only good at working with metal bands. I've spent years working as resident engineer in several venues in my area, so I mixed a huge variety of live acts playing different music genres.

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

  16. A: First of all I want to understand what vision do they have in their mind, and then in which way I can help them achieve it. I love when people have a clear idea of what they want (and of what they don't want).

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

  18. A: I started to mess with soundcards during my teenage years, in the late 90s. I officially entered music business some years later, working as a stagehand at a music venue in my hometown. Then I begun doing live sound and refining my recording skills.

  19. Q: How would you describe your style?

  20. A: I try to be as transparent as I can as an engineer. Unless anything different is required, I aim to make bands sound on records as they would sound live.

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

  22. A: Tough question, there are actually quite a lot of artists I admire and I would love to work with; mainly is to confront myself with different people, different approaches and different ideas.

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

  24. A: Spend time listening and understanding the gear you have. The most precious piece of gear you have are your ears.

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

  26. A: I mostly work on music with peculiar guitar and bass sounds. Not by choice actually, mostly because people know I'm good at it.

  27. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  28. A: Perhaps it's my ability to adapt to different situations, requiring different approaches and workflows.

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

  30. A: An experienced point of view.

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

  32. A: After meeting and discussing with the artist, I usually do some preproductions of their stuff to better understand their vision. Then we go through the tracking process and lastly I mix everything.

  33. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  34. A: I'm specialized in recording and reamping guitar and bass, so I have a pretty vast variety of amplifiers, cabinets, speakers and microphones in order to let musicians find their own sound. I record everything through my old Soundcraft console and then mix in the box.

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

  36. A: One of my biggest influences is Kurt Ballou, both as a musician and as a recording/mixing engineer.

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

  38. A: My favourite job is fully producing records. Working with artists in refining their songs, finding their own sound, and then recording & mixing everything.
