Interview with Eugene Ng
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I really don't think there is one project. All the project I worked on are so different. I am especially proud and happy when I helped the musicians achieved what they want.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I enjoy working on both. However, I do enjoy working on analog gears slightly more because I work much faster and more efficiently.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Everything about the music production process and I really enjoy listening to music on the job. I have is a huge sense of satisfaction with the final product is completed and released.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: My goal is not to charge anyone as much as I can. I always aim to help my clients to save money. Recording and album does not have to be very expensive and/or takes a long time. If everyone in the production comes into the studio well prepared, we all can save time and money.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Pre-production is important. I like to meet my clients before any session to discuss the objective of the project. I like to help my clients to save some studio time so planning and execution of the production will be crucial.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: An SSL Duality 24 channel analog console, a pair of PMCs or Quested monitors, a prism sound interface, a pair of Neumann U87 and the Bricasti M7.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: My specialisation is in studio music production. Since 2006, I have been working as a recording and mixing engineer. I choose this career path because I enjoy playing and working with music. It is my goal to work with artists to create an unforgettable song in history.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I will always try to understand the artist's intend and apply my skills, knowledge, and experience in music production. I will experiment with recording and mixing techniques to create a unique sound for every artist in each of their song and album.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Artists who are committed to create and produce musical works at the highest level. I will always endeavour to put my 100% efforts to bring artists' creative vision alive.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Having the right vibe in studio production is the magic ingredient to a great sounding record. The production process should be enjoyable, everyone should be able to pour all their emotions, heart, and soul into the music.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, Rock, Jazz, and Acoustic music. I also do sound library creation and sound design.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I am able to think out of the box to achieve the sound required with whatever equipment I have access to in order to complete the project efficiently.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: My focus is always on the musicality of the song. I will use any combination of musical instruments, technology, sound design, and music production techniques to enhance the song as much as I can.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually spend a lot of time getting the sound right before recording it (ie; microphone choice & positions, use of preamps, eq & compressor). I always aim to achieve the final album sound by the end of the recording session, So clients will usually leave the recording session hearing close to 80% of the final mix. For mixing, I am well-versed with executing a full analog mix, hybrid mix, or 'in the box' mix.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a well-equipped home studio and I work in two recording studios in Singapore. Both studios house a large-format SSL console with a decent collection of industry standard microphones and outboard gears.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: My music production approach are inspired by Sylvia Massy, Andy Wallace, Manny Marroquin, Jacquire King.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mostly recording and mixing, occasionally mastering. Sometimes conduct music production workshops.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will always try my utmost best to help them achieve their creative vision using all my skills and the best equipment I can find.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How much do I charge? I usually decide after asking the client a series of questions to determine how much work I need to do before I quote a price. In my opinion, it is unfair to charge a blanket fee as no two production requirements are the same. For example; I will charge mixing a song differently based on the number or tracks and the duration of the song.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is your creative vision of these musical works? What is the story behind it? Do you have any references?
