Modern Music Production

Interview with Jean-Stéphane Garbe @ 254sound

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: I don't care, my only concern is what's on the tape or hard drive.

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

  4. A: Because I'm working a lot with projects coming from home-studio...Do you think we can push things further, or do you really like it like that?

  5. Q: How would you describe your style?

  6. A: Keep it simple and organic.

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

  8. A: Electronic, Hip-Hop, Pop, Rock.

  9. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  10. A: Creative: usually I make many proposals, even the strangest ones because I'm in love with just a sound of the song, or I think it's too complex.

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

  12. A: I really dream about giving life to the sound. It's sometimes tricky when working on electronic and urban / hip-hop projects, because it's mostly played with synthetizers. I think to old records: Elvis Presley, Led Zeppelin. Giving life to autotune and leaving some rough things where I can are my everyday challenge.

  14. A: Working mostly with faders.

  15. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

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

  18. A: I love music. Every genres, from any decades...but when I'm working, if I'm feeling that I need to think about some leaders to find inspiration, I'll choose Aphex Twin, The Books, Brian Eno, MIA, Kanye West, David Bowie.

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

  20. A: Production, vocals recording and Mix. Mastering when lower budget.
