Interview with Luke Spillane
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Well, especially the hour long techno beats have their place in my heart when it comes to pride. Recording, Arranging, and audio mixing!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm producing a 50 minute-long, hard techno mix!
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I'm not sure about that one. My brother drums and plays in 'Big Rooster Jeff'. I'd definitely recommend his beats if you need a drummer.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Both have a part to play.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: It's all written out there that we will produce lots of timeless music together in a confident manner.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How did I learn to make music? Like I said before, it's in the blood and something I'm just born to do.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That it's easy producing good music with a computer or any other real or electronic instrument.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: How big is your vision? First question.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Remember to have a strong goal and really expect to push your self hard to make that 'vison' of the project a reality. I am here to help you push through with everything.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: First thing, my Arturia Keystep Midi Controller. It has quickly become the hub of many of my new projects. Plus, probably my old apple laptop so I can produce almost any type of beat/music still.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: 20 years plus. Doing this is my destiny and what I was born to do.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Heavy light music, well considered but still with a raw rough edge to it.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Well as I'm heavily into electronica and techno music on a personal level, I would aspire to work with somebody from a similar background, possibly somebody like 'Vitalic' as his music inspires and I think we could excel.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't be afraid to be noisy, loud and expressive. Use distortion liberally with almost any instrument. It helps the player tune in I believe.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Anything from guitar based indie music, to heavy techno, pop and everything in between.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is probably my electric guitar playing. It's something I've done fairly consistently for over 20 years now and it feels like 2nd nature.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I like to think I have an energy. I'm sure I'm pretty unique so that can help me to understand other musicians and artists, etc.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Setting up the gear, but usually flowing with the drums to start with, rolling out a good simple, sometimes even skeleton beat of a song, and then flesh out the rythm and melody on top of the beats.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I keep things really simple for recording and producing, using some really oldskool but deadly stable Apple Mac G5 towers and a copy of garage band. I use an 8 channel mixer too that I record all the audio in from.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I really love techno music, acid dance music, and respect anybody who can mix a good hard dance beat down. So from producers to guitarists, I really love live music as well as electronic!
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common work is recording drum machines, guitars and synthesizers along with vocals and mixing the music down. I don't do any type of mastering but I have a studio who I support who do do it if needed.
