I can honestly say that I have an ear for detail. Been at it all my life. My parents wanted me to be a doctor, I tried meeting them half way. I doctor music and I am too good at it. I can composite from scratch and or replicate almost any genre out there. Still learning as I do and deliver.
Step sequencing, scoring, sound design, mixing. All these things come with originality. I hate using loops and samples and I highly advice against them. Been a timeline freak all my life learning from my mentors. Always looking for the perfect record, be it an orchestral score or a good old fashioned catchy tune. Lets make beautiful music.

Interview with Faraz Haider
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Multiple things that will take forever to explain.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Fred Miller. He's mastered a few songs for me and he's fantastic.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Even though I am a big fan of the warmth that comes from Analog, digital is the future.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Quality and honesty.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The fact that I enjoy it.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: When will it get done? Me: When you start trusting me.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I am only a singer.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What's your market? Got references? What's the deadline?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Tell me everything until I run out of questions.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Acoustic guitar, portable recorder, mic, tuner and a hat. :D
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Been at it since I was 13. My folks wanted me to do anything but music.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: 90's hot-wired to current pop.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Taylor Swift. I love how she went from a bluesy good girl to a bad ass pop star and did what had to be done.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: My favorite trick is the reversal effect that I've been using since I was a teenager. Adding reverb to a reversed file and then reverse the rendered file. It gives you a haunting feeling. But I only use this effect to start a first verse or a second chorus depending on the impact I want.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Hip hop, Pop, R&B and sometimes orchestral when I really need a challenge.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My voice.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Soul and flavor.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Exchanging tons of words with the client. Compose on guitars and keyboards. Translate everything later on my DAW. Based on the required genre/sound, I then start laying down instruments based on references that may have been provided as samples or descriptions and hopefully start mixing them back and forth as I add and remove tracks and instruments.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Since the age of 13, I have been a Michael Jackson fan like all the wannabe superstars. But as I grew up and learned music production, I started listening to music producers like BT, Nine Inch Nails, Hans Zimmer and following bands like Guns N Roses, Metallica, Whitesnake. In the recent years I adapted to the newer music that caters to a more younger generation like The Weeknd, Taylor Swift, Daft Punk, Kendrick Lemar and the list goes on.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: A score for a film or documentary.
