Interview with Mark Siegel

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

  2. A: I've been called on to produce music for National Geographic and Hulu recently with extremely short deadlines. I found myself working at a capacity that I had not worked at before, and ended up extremely happy with the end result. I also found that it opened up a new area of creativity for me when it came to arranging more cinematic music to picture.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Both.There are no doubt some elements that translate via Analog equipment that you just don't get in the box. I've noticed this most with analog synths. That being said, each song calls for something different and unique. Sometimes even the best Key samples just don't deliver what a real piano will, while sometimes a real piano won't give the song the character that a sampled soft synth will.

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

  6. A: Don't Settle, Push Further and don't be afraid to break the rules. These are the things that Ive found help the most when taking a song to the marketplace hoping that it makes a statement. Having references of other artists that you enjoy listening to are great, however digging deep into "what" you want "your" brand to sound like, is just as important as what you want it to look like. They go hand in hand.

  7. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  8. A: I've built my space in Nashville focussed on atmosphere and creativity. I have a 400sq. ft Control Room filled with a Baldwin upright piano, multiple vintage synths, organs and guitars. A nice selection of microphones for every application needed, and a 200sq. ft Tracking Room. Microphone List: Neumann TLM67 Telefunken M280 Coles 4038 Shure SM7 Slate VMS Vintage Body Avantone CV-12 Cascade Fathead II Shure SM57 Shure SM58 Shure KSM9 Sennheiser e609 Outboard Gear: Neve AMS 1073 Neve 511 Empirical Labs Distressor Acme Audio Optical XLA500 Universal Audio 610 Universal Audio 710 Universal Audio LA2A Warm Audio WA76 Universal Audio Apollo X8 Heritage Audio BT500 API 550a Grace Audio M905 Behringer Powerplay P16 Monitoring Monitors: Focal Twin6Be KRK8 DAWS: Pro Tools 12 Logic X Pianos: Falcone Baby Grand Baldwin 1978 Upright Synths: 1973 Roland Juno-6 1981 Roland Juno-106 Moog Sub Phatty Kawai MP7 Suzuki Omnichord Arturia Key Lab Guitars: McPherson MG4.0 Acoustic 1963 Gibson Acoustic 1993 Yamaha Acoustic Ibanez Acoustic Gibson Les Paul Studio Fender 70's Reissue Telecaster Fender Telecaster Duesenberg Starplayer TV Starling Baritone Guitar Fender P Bass Fender Jazz Bass Goldtone Banjo

  9. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  10. A: My primary focus is on artist development specifically for major label and independent label artists. I've spent years working as a musician and producer both in the studio and on the road assisting artists dial in their branding. My goal has always been to allow artists to freely develop their sound and talent while assisting them in direction and establishment.

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

  12. A: I ended up being picked up as a touring musician at the age of 18. I was a multi-instrumentalist and music director for several different artists over a period of 8 years with tours out of Los Angeles and Nashville. My experiences interacting with different style audience's began translating in the studio as a songwriter and producer. I then began to focus more on assisting artists develop by helping them transition from their studio record to their live show experience.
