Interview with LCAW
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I work on a lot of my own music as LCAW that I release independently but I'm so eager to make as much music as I can so I'm looking forward to working with more other musicians on their projects too.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both analog and digital has a lot to offer. The combination of the two is just a killer combo.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I always have to give my best effort, can't help it.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Making music.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What are you looking for.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Let's chat.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Honestly sounds like a dream. Island Studio with a grand piano, my cello, a CS-80, a huge sound system and my laptop for some amazing Sunset ambient jams.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I play Cello on quite a high level but I did not really see myself pursue a career in classical music as an orchestra musician or something like that. When I was 18 I produced my first remix on put it on SoundCloud where it practically blew up over night and reached 15 Million streams. Shortly after I got my first official remix request from Marlon Roudette, Asaf Avidan, ZHU and all the others I mentioned in my profile, got booked as a DJ on huge festivals worldwide and everything cam together quite quickly.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Energetic and melodic dance music.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'd love to work with Tame Impala so I could just watch how he works. There's so much to learn from Kevin Parker.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Go with what feels right, that's by far the most important thing in my opinion. If you love it many others will do so too.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I've been working on a lot of dance music and I really enjoy doing that. There's another project that I'm working on that combines classical and electronic ambient music and I've been performing with professional orchestras and ensembles for the past 2 years.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill in music production is the layering of many elements while keeping it simple enough so it does not overwhelm the listener. This gives my tracks a musical depth that has been appreciated by a big fanbase over the years.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: My highest priority is to have an original approach that has a unique and magical sound to it. With 23+ years of classical music education I know very well what I'm doing and I can layer in a complex but aesthetically pleasing way to create beautiful soundscapes.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: The first thing I do is listen to the song I'm supposed to remix and try to understand what brings the magic to the original so I can preserve as much as possible in the remix. When I start my production process I tend to work very intuitively and the first idea that comes to mind I try to follow through to see where it takes the remix. Once I have a version that sounds magical to me I start with the details and polish it up so it pleases my critical ears.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I recently started to invest more into analog gear. I come from classical music so I love putting my hands on keys, strings, anything that can be played. I work with Ableton 10, have a Behringer model D which can create very dreamy sounds when I connect it to my Strymon Big Sky Reverb and Strymon Volante Delay. One of my favourite FM synths I recently purchased is the Yamaha Reface DX, it has so much potential when it comes to sound design. Besides that I use a Nord Stage Piano for anything key related. Besides that I have a wide range of virtual instruments like the U-he Diva, Massive, Silent, Omnisphere, Arturia, Roland Cloud, Reaktor, Serum... Occasionally I include a Steinway Grand Piano worth 100.000$ and my Cello.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I really look up to Tame Impala, Bonobo and Jamie xx. When organic instrumentation meets danceable and programmed beats, that's what I'm really into. For my own production I really love mixing acoustic sounds with electronic elements to create very modern dance music.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I usually get hired for remixes since I have my own artist project that I do production for and putting my own spin on other musicians music is something I really enjoy doing. I really enjoy the challenge of taking a song from a very different genre and reimagining it.
