Reviews from my music releases:
“Holographic Dreams makes you feel like you’ve just started playing a VR game, surrounded by a happy, poptastic soundtrack. Right from the start, Hybrid Rose delves into her love of electronic soundscapes and cascading synths.” - Lara Smetannikov (HappyMag)
"If you needed a soundtrack for an 80’s movie that requires some computer hacking done, look no further than Why Don’t You Love Me?. With a good pace and a heavy dose of pulsating synths, it embodies that whole era of 80’s ideological future tech; the neon colors, the collars, the glasses, the hoverboards, and lasers. A nostalgic trip with that modern control of structure that makes it so smooth and agreeable to listen to." - BUTCH181 (Muzic.net.nz)

Working with Rose was such a breath of fresh air - she has electric energy, was game for anything, wasn’t afraid to experiment and totally captured the vibe and feeling I was looking for in this remix. She breathed new life into this project and made me so excited to make music again. She is fierce and authentic and I would work with her again in a heartbeat!
Wow so fast and attentive to my notes! Great work!
Rose is a magician! She is professional. Easy to communication even I am not a fluent English speaker.
Final task for my project complete :) Rose was very connected to this, and has been ultra helpful with every aspect.
Working with Rose was a real joy! She immediately understood my vision and gave my song the professional fine-tuning it needed. Our communication went smoothly as well, she never kept me waiting and my track was finished in no time. I can't recommend her highly enough!
Fantastic as usual, super friendly in comms, and willing to work at lightning speed!
Absolutely lovely to work with, very talented and did exactly what I asked for with revisions, got the job done really quick too. Very professional and kind! <3
The reviews are all true! Rose transformed my song and breathed new life into it! I barely had to explain anything...Rose is just full of so much creativity and vision that all I wanted was captured to perfection! Within an hour or two, the first demo was already complete! Rose was consistently efficient, delivering high quality results! Extremely generous and patient! No question - I definitely recommend leaving your song with rose. You're in good hands.
Rose got this project to me within a day, ahead of schedule - which was a huge bonus. I trust them to balance all the necessary techniques for mastering my songs!
Very talented, professional, and works and responds at light speed!

Great working with Rose!
Rose always impresses me! She works super fast and very motivated.
Super fast feedback and straight to the point on what the artist wants!
Rose stays on top of the projects and is great to work with. Always a pleasure.
Rose did a great job (and incredibly fast and responsive) on a drum track I asked her for help on. She went a different direction than I'd originally envisioned—and it was better than what I'd come up with on my own!
Rose works super professional and fast. The communication with her is very efficient and easy. Highly recommended.

Interview with Rose Muollo-Gray
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Awkwardly Eccentric, it was my own project that I released in 2019. It's the embodiment of my creative direction and captures me as an artist perfectly.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Some A.G Cook inspired futuristic pop. I've been listening to an abundance of Charli XCX, Sophie and A.G Cook and I really love how futuristic their sounds are and I want to experiment that field of music, especially in sound design. Since I am studying sound design, i'm also putting that into my craft and creating some pretty experimental stuff.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital, we're in a world that is progressing at a rapid speed and the way we can make analog out of the digital creates a paradox between the debate around Analog or digital. One example is that people use plug-ins and VSTs to create sounds and tools that are emulated through analog gear.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: That I will do everything in my power to make sure that when you work with me, your music will get the best quality possible.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Not a lot, my turnaround time is usually pretty fast, I respond as much as I can and work as hard as I can.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That because I don't have a lot of top tier credentials or that I know/have worked with a lot of famous people that I'm not worthy of working for musicians (or being a provider). Another thing people assume, me being a young woman in the music industry that I can't do it all on my own. I've had a lot of experience because I started working at a young age and have a genuine passion for audio production.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be specific about what you want, maybe you could send a playlist or link to the influence tracks behind the sound or idea you're going for.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Audio-technica headphones, a synthesizer of some sort (maybe a KORG), a drum machine or percussive instrument, mini toy keyboard, and my laptop.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Musical Charmeleon.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: SOPHIE or Dan Konopka. I've worked with Dan before but as a client, would love to sit down and write some music together. SOPHIE because her theoretical perspective on music production and the future of pop music is fascinating, would love to learn a few things from her and make something of it.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Whatever feels right in the moment - it's all subject to change, which can be a blessing for working as a provider. I'm able to musically adapt myself to whatever the client is looking for.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skills include mixing tracks to the desired genre, using different sounds and frequencies to give the track some personality and an atmosphere.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I've spent 10 years of my life listening and studying sound through every kind of playback device and headphone/earphone. I'm also studying audio engineering, sound design, and composition practices, using those skills to help me grow and progress as a musician/mixer.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to get to know the musician, where they're at, what their influences for the project are, intentions for their project, and finding a middle ground.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: It's all on a huge desk. I have my Eris E3.5 Active Media Reference Monitors, my Akai mixer, Audio interface, a couple of keyboards and launchpads, Audio-Technica headphones and then I have 2 microphones ready for recording sessions (Tascam Condensor or my Behringer Dynamic). The DAWs that I used are between Fl Studio and Ableton.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Music production and mixing. Sometimes I do songwriting or provide production tips! I sing a little bit myself but it's heavily digitalized. My goals are to provide the best quality mix for my clients. This is a little personal but I like to do some photoshopping so sometimes I'll make some pretty artwork to go along with the music!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I like to know where they're at, what their influences are, why they're doing what they're doing and get to know them well enough to be able to use that to drive the way I approach their needs.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Dan Konopka, he's been helping me work on my own songs. I've been experimenting with vocals and he's been helping me elevate my craft to new levels vocally.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Being able to help people get the right sound they're looking for and being able to connect with other musicians.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been making music since I was like 9-10. I just want to make music in any way I can. Whenever I am sad, I will play some music that I feel like defines the atmosphere of my geographical and emotional state. When I found my signature sound, I started to create that type of music for myself. Since then, my dream is to create a space in this world for myself where everywhere I go, I get to hear the music I have designed for that environment.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Distorted bass never goes out of style, no matter what style or genre you're working with.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Grimes, A.G Cook, Haruomi Hosono, SOPHIEMSMSMSM.
