Interview with Tony "Moment" Nardini
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing and full productions.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: AD/DA, if it sounds good, it is good.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Computer, MIDI keyboard, microphone, guitar, interface.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Fusion of many different genres.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Any artists that are open minded to expanding their sound beyond what they had even imaged themselves.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Anyone truly amazing at what they do.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: In a digital world where you have the ability to make everything as perfect as you can, perfection can end up sounding stale. Mistakes can make a song feel human and more emotional. Don't be afraid to let a few things slide in the performance!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill would have to be my deep understanding and passion for music. It's what drives me to keep growing and learning as much as possible.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise to give each project 110%! I will do my best in trying to bring the artists vision to life, or exceeding it!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: (*deep, sensual voice*) I dim all the faders down low, and gently one by one, I raise each fader up letting the curves blend together... But seriously, that's how I start my mixes. Depending on what I'm doing, I usually start with a cup of coffee.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How much do you charge for a mix? That depends on the size of the session and length of the song. The less tracks and the shorter the song, the less it costs.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Do you have any reference mixes you want the track to sound like? Are you "married" to any previous mixes of the song?
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The fulfillment and satisfaction I get from hearing something I've worked on come to life, and when the client is as happy as can be about a project.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been playing music since i was 13 years old in middle school band playing the "Euphonium". In high school, I started playing drums, then added the guitar in a few months later. I played in bands all throughout my high school years, played over 150+ shows in and out of state. The uncertainty of bands led me to music production and mix engineering, which I've been doing ever since!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: In no specific order : Hip Hop, Rock, Metal, Pop, R&B, EDM, Indie
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I try my best to bring out the best of the song in a way that surpasses what the artist wanted to hear!
