Interview with Frosti

  1. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  2. A: MacBook Pro, DP11, NI Maschine, Piano and a Mic

  3. Q: How would you describe your style?

  4. A: Down-tempo, atmospheric

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

  6. A: Most of my own music is mostly instrumental Down-Tempo, Electronica and synth pop. My collaborative projects are mostly electro-pop, dance and down-tempo.

  7. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  8. A: I would say producing songs and work with (good) vocalists brings me the most joy and thats when I deliver the best work. Mixing and mastering.

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

  10. A: My approach has it´s own sound and feel which has been shaped by experience and what interests me in music.

  11. Q: What's your typical work process?

  12. A: It all starts with listening to you and understand your goals. I like to have some reference points when mixing tracks. When producing music with singers, I like to work around the vocals and use my experience to elevate your song and make it sound the best it can.

  13. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  14. A: For mixing, scoring, editing & mastering, Digital Performer (DP11) is at the core of my studio. I use hardware and software when producing my music and on music projects I work on with other.

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

  16. A: Producing, mixing and mastering. Make music ready for release.

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

  18. A: I´m very proud of my latest release "evolve" (released under Bistro Boy). The album was written, produced, mixed and mastered by me. The album has received some great reviews and was on listed as one of the 100 best albums of the year 2020 by the members of TWGEEMA.

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

  20. A: Mixing songs for a client, finishing my own release and making demo with a singer

  21. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  22. A: Not sure, I have to check!

  23. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  24. A: Depends on what you´re doing. Apart from using external gear making music, my mixing and mastering is "digital". I´m confident that I´m able to deliver good results at a fair price. But at the end of the day, you, the customer, is the one to tell if I am fulfilling your needs and meeting up with the professional standard you have.

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

  26. A: My promise is to deliver a result my client is happy and confident with.

  27. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  28. A: The music

  29. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  30. A: My song sounds bad, can you fix it. We can´t fix something thats broken. Let me listen and i´ll share my thoughts with you what needs to be done.

  31. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  32. A: That it´s just about adding that "one" plugin to make everything sound great and not give attention to the source material (the mix) we´re working with.

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

  34. A: What is your goal with a track I might work on with you. What are you looking for when it comes to sound and do you have any references to share. How much creative input do you want from me when it coms to additional production of your song.

  35. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  36. A: Lets have a conversation first to see If i´m the right one for you.

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

  38. A: I started my journey making my own music when i got my first Atari 1024 computer, armed with Cubase and Sampler in 1991. Later, I studied Audio Engineering at FIH School in Iceland (Icelandic Musicians Union), worked as a sound engineer at the National Theatre for a couple of years while doing production work (mixing, scoring, producing) music with local artists.
