Interview with Ben Worsey - Everland Studios
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I am most often involved in the process through both the tracking and mixing phases but I also enjoy being involved in just recording or mixing.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: An A-Z of a small selection of music that inspires me: Alt-J, Burial, Charles Mingus, Decemberists, Eddie Bo, Flaming Lips, Go Betweens, Heliocentrics, Iron & Wine, James Blake, Knife, Lauryn Hill, Magnetic Fields, Nomo, Otis Redding, Paul Simon, Quantic, Red House Painters, Sonic Youth, TV On the Radio, Ugly Duckling, Velvet Underground, Warpaint, XX, Yo La Tengo, Zola Jesus
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Everland is a hybrid studio, that is it incorporates both the digital an analogue realms. I'm just as comfortable using outboard gear as plugins. At the end of the day it's really about selecting the right tool to achieve the sound that the artist hears in their head.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: A creative ear and a love for a wide range of genres of music, from the obvious (rock, pop etc.) to traditional African music, drone, ambient and all things in-between.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I don't like to confine myself to working on one particular genre. I love to work on a wide range of projects as it keeps things interesting.
