Interview with Thor Bremer

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

  2. A: Realms by Nine Worlds Ensemble. It's our newest album, which was released April 2020. I composed, arranged, played mallet percussion, produced, and mixed all of the music, and I think it's my strongest writing to date.

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

  4. A: I am working on indie games, sample development, slot machines, and original music, in addition to teaching.

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: Digital. The flexibility is necessary for me, and these days sounds excellent.

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

  8. A: I will work until you are satisfied with the project.

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

  10. A: Take the time to look over and get to know someone's style.

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

  12. A: I've had a long and winding career. I have been a working professional drummer and percussionist for the past 15 years, and working as a professional composer for the past 4. I have been writing original music for 10 years, and decided in 2016 to pursue composition and sound design professionally.

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

  14. A: I don't have a specific answer to this question, but I like working with artists with vision, great communication, and a unique voice of their own.

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

  16. A: It seriously changes just about every week.

  17. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  18. A: Creativity. I can find unique solutions, and I always look for a different way to approach music and sound, making what I do sound uniquely my own.

  19. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  20. A: Two iMacs with a Focusrite interface, a collection of mics, Event monitors, a vast assortment of instruments, plugins and sound and sample libraries.

  21. Q: How would you describe your style?

  22. A: It's a giant melting pot of influences.

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

  24. A: The arrangement is the most important thing. Get that right and all of your mixing is a lot easier.

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

  26. A: Many years of experience and working with incredible musicians as well as a keen ear for arrangement and composition. I like to find unconventional solutions to problems, and people I work with value that a lot.

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

  28. A: I spend time considering and conceptualizing what the project needs the most. This time is incredibly valuable, as I need to get my head around the project and understand it well in order to be efficient.

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

  30. A: Composition: Jason Graves, Masashi Hamauzu, Revo Drums: Antonio Sanchez, Thomas Lang
