Interview with Lazar Music
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been and still am a full time music teacher. My original goal was to spread the magic of music to younger generations because I know how much of an impact music had on me as a child. These days, I find I have less influence than I had hoped in a classroom and feel the real way to spread the love is write what people want to hear.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I would describe my style as a blending of modern sounds and production techniques while also incorporating the styles of older genres such as funk and jazz. I try to incorporate all the things I love about music into my compositions. I tend to pay close attention to detail and sample things from older songs in a very subtle way.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to someday work with some modern pop artists mostly just because I love what producers are doing on pop records. Now that modern music is mostly electronic based, I feel like the real artists are the producers behind the scenes.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Practice and practice EFFICIENTLY. As with any aspect of art, practice makes permanent, so being efficient in how you practice will allow for the best progression.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I am usually working on modern hip hop/pop music. I find the production techniques to be fascinating and as a result, I tend to gravitate towards those genres. I also tend to get small projects for videos and things that require music. They tend to have a more modern flair that people appreciate while also subtly incorporating some older styles as well.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is definitely my ability to create arrangements quickly. It is very easy for me to develop anything into something great. I ask for small melodies and things constantly and I enjoy collaborating and building off the small ideas I get from others. This is also why I really enjoy writing remixes.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a strong musical knowledge through my classical training and a love for modern trap and hip hop styles. My love for popular music really dates back to funk. I try to incorporate all of these elements in my music.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I start with a simple keyboard sound and start messing around with chord progressions. When I find one I like, the rest just writes itself. I can't really explain my process. It's like my brain knows what it wants to hear and my ears just guide me to that.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My current studio is a home studio with 3 monitors, a studio microphone, 2 keyboards, a bass guitar, acoustic guitar and other various instruments that I have lying around including, Clarinet, Trumpet, Tuba, Flute, Trombone, and percussion instruments. I am always willing to experiment with acoustic sounds in my compositions.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am inspired by people like George Clinton, Dr. Dre and Miles Davis who were true innovators for their time. At the same time, I also am inspired by people like Zedd, Knife Party, and Seven Lions for their incredible use of sounds. They have opened up a whole new world of music that always makes me motivated to try new things.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I am usually writing beats for various Hip/Hop and Rap artists. It is the quickest work I do, so I tend to do a lot of it.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I am very proud of a video game project I worked on a few years ago. A buddy of mine was working on a video game with a team and he asked me to write some music for it. I never saw the game, but it ended up being featured at one of the biggest video game conferences in the world (E3). It was so awesome to know that my work was a part of that.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Personal Projects. I finished writing my first single and am in the process of getting it posted to various music platforms.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Currently I do not know anyone on SoundBetter, but I hope to build some relationships soon.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital. It's less messy.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise to deliver what you need to the best of my ability. I will never put less than 150% of my energy into your project because I just enjoy it too much. If you are not satisfied with my work, I will continue to work tirelessly for no extra cost to deliver what you need.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I can share my love for music with everybody I come in contact with. My life is music, my first love is music. I will never give it up.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: I always get asked, "What is it that you actually do?". My response is always the same: "What is it I DON'T do." I am a jack of all trades. I am a composer, writer, arranger, mixing engineer, mastering engineer, in some cases I am a director/coach, and performer. I need to do it all.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Although I like working alone a lot of the time, I also like collaborating with others. I enjoy getting projects, even if they are just for fun.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I always want to know what music means to you. If I can get a sense of why you enjoy music, I can cater to you much better than if I don't.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Don't be afraid to give constructive criticism. The only way for artists to get better at what they do is when people tell us what we are doing wrong and what we need to improve. I will always listen to my audience because they make or break me in the end.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: I would take my laptop, my external hard drive with all of my VSTs, my audio Technica studio headphones, my MPK mini MIDI controller, and my Audio Technica microphone for recording vocals. That's all I would need and I already take all those things on the road with me.
