Interview with eddiebowermusic
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: DragonBall Z: Light Of Hope. Even though I worked for FREE, and despite me having had no experience to that point of being a film composer, AND my first time as a score and post-production mixer: Despite all that, myself and the entire team accomplished a life-changing feat....it was my very 1st composing credit and I'm eternally grateful to Robot Underdogs for the opportunity. S.O. to IMJD, Abraham Castaneda, and John Silas.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: A 15 song album of piano/orchestral music. I'm co-composing, mixing and mastering this project. Just received another compositional project, & am starting my masterclass series on the creation of professional music.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: 100% from me!! If they're not satisfied, I'll refund their money....no questions asked!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: It's a skill that takes a long time to master; and within that time, you become great at it. The satisfaction and thank you from clients (and pros alike), and of course the ability to create a career path to financial freedom.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I just make beats!!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Listen to their work, don't hesitate to research their credits, and be specific.....but realistic. It's ideal to anticipate a delay in a project, but expect it IF the goals from the start are realistic.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Musician since 5; professional music industry since 1999; audio engineer since '03, instructor for 13 years at Musicians Institute, professional composer for 4 years.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Harry Gregson-Williams; and it's mostly because he's heard my covers of his score from 'The Equalizer,' and 'The Martian,' and he loved both of them. I definitely would like to pick his brain.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Let your arrangement dictate the instruments, and not the other way around. If you become overwhelmed with all the VST instruments and sounds available, you'll forget about the basic fundamentals of songwriting......great arrangements make great songs!!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Hip-hop/Rap and RnB; lately I've been working on cinematic/orchestral compositions.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Multitrack mixing...next question!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Attention to detail; i.e., the crescendo of a cello in a particular phrase, the emphasis on the brightness of the hook compared to the lead vocals in the verse. Those are subtle nuances that give the client the 'WOW.'
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I start with a consult with the client to get specifics about the project. We then discuss payment and workflow. Once I receive the audio stems, I get straight to work on creating and importing the files. From there I use their reference mix/composition to understand the feel, pace, & style of the artist/composer.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Quincy Jones & Dr. Dre are the 2 names thats stand out for me as my inspiration. Too many to list but those 2 for sure.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mostly mixing multitrack session; but especially recently I have been collaborating with clients on production & composing. I've also done mastering as well.
