Interview with David Greenbaum

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

  2. A: Without a doubt it’s Beck’s latest album, Hyperspace. Getting to engineer, co-produce and mix an album with Beck and Pharrell (two musical heroes of mine) was beyond anything I could have ever dreamed up. Now, to have it be nominated for Best Alternative Album and Best Engineered at the GRAMMYs is just way way way way more than I could ever have hoped for.

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

  4. A: that amazing feeling when it all starts to gel

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

  6. A: After high school I attended Berklee College of Music and studied music production and engineering. My first real studio engineering job was at Linda Perry’s private studio. If you’ve ever been in her orbit, you know what a force she is, and she was a hugely inspiring person for me. She encouraged me to pursue the writing and production, and I did. A few years later, I started working with Beck and we soon started on Morning Phase which won 3 Grammys. Since then we’ve done two more albums together, and lots of other projects along the way.

  7. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  8. A: I love the band 1975. They can be so pop but also as weird as they want to be. And production-wise, they can sound like a band or not at all. And it all fits them.

  9. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  10. A: The microphones are more important than the microphone preamps. the instruments are more important than the microphones. The musicians are more important than the instruments. The song form is more important than the instrumentation. Chord progression is more important than the form. The lyrics and melody are more important than everything.

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

  12. A: indie, pop, alternative, rock, hip hop

  13. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  14. A: interpersonal

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

  16. A: an eclectic palette, an accessibilty for the listener, ear candy, authenticity

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

  18. A: writing and production
