Interview with Dylan Fischer

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: Currently I am working out of my home studio and Findlay Studios in Austin, TX.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Both have their place and I think the people who will see success are those who are able to incorporate both in some fashion. The ease of editing and routing in digital has a lot of advantages to working in the analog realm. I also believe the tactile nature of analog gear can be inspiring and hard to recreate with mouse clicks. Both have their place, it's about picking the right tools for the application and knowing how to use what you have at your disposal.

  5. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  6. A: To see their vision for the music realized

  7. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  8. A: What is your goal with this release?

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

  10. A: My involvement with music started at the age of 4 years old when I took violin lessons. From 5th-8th grade I was in both choir and band and competed in area competitions in both. I continued on with band for grades 9th-12th but switched from playing the Alto Saxophone to the Baritone Saxophone. Our marching band when to state and won most of the regional competitions we took part in. At 14 years old I picked up a guitar and learned to play. By the age of 16 years old I started playing bass guitar also. I played in several local bands and got started engineering by being the only one at the DIY gigs who was willing to set up mics and mess with the mixer. I went to a tech school to learn how to record my own band but my interests started shifting more towards the production and engineering side and away from the playing side.

  11. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  12. A: I work with a lot of Rock and Americana artists but have done several singles with a Latin band and worked on Pop productions

  13. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  14. A: It really depends on the song and my role in it, but an overarching theme is taking what the artist has created and trying to get them to take it to the next level, whatever that is for them. If you created something good then how do we make it great!

  15. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  16. A: I love listening to albums that Eric Valentine had a hand in engineering or mixing.

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

  18. A: I'm usually working with clients in the studio. I will do pre-production work in advance, on recording days I engineer the session choosing mics and placement, get sounds get the console & computer, work to get amazing takes from the artist, and mix.
