Interview with Jordan Kosisko
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: While performing with Duquesne University's chamber choir, Voices of Spirit, I also got to create some amazing projects for the group. On our 2020 tour to Canada, I did multiple on location recordings of our performances. I also put together the audio for 2 virtual choirs. I took the audio from over 30 different videos of each choir member singing, edited them for timing, then mixed and mastered for the audio you hear in the video.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: You can magically fix anything in mixing or mastering. WRONG! Take time when tracking to capture the sounds you want to hear. Spending a little extra time moving a mic or trying a different arrangement can save you hours later on down the road. Your mixes and masters will benefit greatly from it.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started playing guitar in middle school and eventually formed a band in high school and played gigged with them for awhile. I started getting into recording because our band wanted to record our own music but we didn't have enough money to pay for studio time. I became interested in the process and science behind it and the gear being used. I later decided to study recording in college to gain a further understanding of how to properly record and become a sponge of knowledge, soaking in any tips and trick our professors gave us. I have been working as a recording artist and engineer for 6+ years now.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Listen to all different kinds of music. You never know when or where you might hear something that will inspire you.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I like to think out of the box and experiment with the tools and equipment I have.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I start by editing the tracks or stems provided. Then I do any vocal/instrument tuning if needed. Then I start mixing working to give clarity to the tracks to help them sit better so that every instrument is heard but none are overpowering. I like to understand where the client invisions the project (inspiration, production style, etc.) and use that as a guide while mixing the song. Last I add reverbs, delays, modulation, and any imaging effects (if applicable) and prepare the song for mastering. My mastering process is simple: Retain dynamics, keep clarity, and bring the song to a reasonable level for distribution.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Jack Antonoff, Kenney Beats, Butch Vig, Ariel Posen, John Mayer, & Corey Wong
