Interview with HEM
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I'm particularly proud of my first EP. Each song has a unique sound, and I personally love each song--so has everyone else who have listened to them. Sure, it won't be the best, but I'm glad it's going to be the first! I produced them all, wrote the lyrics to them all, and so on. I even mixed it, only to have Camilo master it for me. It was a lot of work for being only a beginner, but I'm ready for more challenges!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am working on several pre-made songs I plan to sell. I am also working on an EP for myself and a single that follows closely afterwards. I also just submitted three of my songs into a competition, so I'm quite busy!
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: There is a mastering engineer named Camilo I would recommend 100%! He's always so sweet and absolutely amazing at what he does! I always have a good time working with him.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital. Mostly because I don't have the proper gear for analog. I would probably move up to analog in the future, though.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I 'promise' them that I will do everything I can to make them the song they deserve. I try my best to surpass their vision, and I want them to feel happy and confident with their song.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I've always loved music, and I have a very artistic side of me, too. So, for me personally, I see producing as taking a rhythm or beat and drawing a "picture" to complete it. I think music and art are very much related, and producing gives me the opportunity to use my talents to their best ability, all the while enjoying myself and doing something I love doing and not regretting any second of it.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: I haven't had a customer...at least not yet~~ XD
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Not sure. I honestly haven't been into the music industry very song, so I'm not quite able to answer that question yet.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I tend to ask what is their vision for the song, what kind of sound they're wanting to achieve, and things like that. I like to be visual with songs, as if they have their own personality and appearance. Asking for even the smallest of details of what my clients want is extremely helpful for making the perfect song.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I would tend to look for the more underrated ones. Sounds odd, I know, but sometimes the best songs come from small numbers. A lot of people are drawn to stereotypes and things they're comfortable with, but producers like me are outside the box and produce different kinds of songs from the regular.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Gear...hmm the question is what kind? Realistically I would take a knife, blanket, flint, a large water bottle, and rope. If it's musical gear...XDXD
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I first started taking an interest in the entertainment industry itself when I was 15. I practiced acting, participated in plays, and I sang quite a lot. When I was 16 I took online vocal lessons and worked on my singing, most of that year consisting of waking up at 3:00 a.m. and practicing until school started. At 18, I began working on my first EP, which will release November of 2021. To help my family financially and further my career in music, I started a producing job. I've been working on my EP and have been a producer for less than a year now.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style definitely varies, but I would say it has more of a powerful feel to it. The instrumental is usually strong and has somewhat of a dark but upbeat tone, and the vocals tend to test the range of one's vocals. I like making impactful beats, and oftentimes they are distinct and fun.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work with NCT or SuperM. I absolutely love their style in music and I got a lot of inspiration from them. I might as well say they are the reason I am a producer today, so I would love to work with them.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Set the mood. Whether it be a rainy and cold day with a lit candle beside you, or even you can be out in nature itself to really feel the song. I personally connect myself to my songs, so setting the mood makes things flow easier when it comes to production.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on hiphop. I'm not too fond of the common type of songs in the pop genre now, so I tend to lean more towards a mix of hiphop and alternative.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Definitely making the instrumental. I almost lose myself as I put instruments and beats together, and I often find myself liking the instrumental a lot more than the lyrics itself.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I like to bring originality, some spice, and little things you don't hear in an every day song. Whether it be a certain style of singing or rapping, the way the instrumental is arranged, or a sound effect that changes the mood of a song, I like adding different things into songs to make them...well, different.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: It all starts with a voice memo. As soon as an idea for a song comes to mind, I instantly record myself. When I am able to take the demo and make it into my DAW, I develop it. I start with the beat, then the lyrics. I complete nearly every song I make, and it's a rather quick process, usually taking up to a day or less to complete.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I wish I had a studio. Because I've only just become a producer, I have a garage with all of the necessary gear--mic, speakers, a computer, and so on. I am slowly working my way up to a real studio, though. One of my biggest goals in life is to have a professional studio of my own.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: TEDDY, Moonshine, and Lee Taeyong inspire me. They may not be the most well known producers, but they have inspired me into creating music.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Either selling pre-made songs or producing a specialized song for a client. They give me requests and ideas, and I help their vision come true.
