Interview with Studio of the Woodland Realm
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Digital because we can. Analog because we are not robots.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: With technology making recording so affordable and accessible these days, people sometimes do not see the value of hiring professionals. The truth is, we have the added benefit of having worked with numerous artists, typically work each day to significantly improve our trade, and have a facility that was literally built specifically for recording and mixing. The amount of time and money you can save, and the knowledge you can gain from being around other professionals is priceless.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Ask questions. Be prepared, Be realistic.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Pretty much anything in your parents vinyl collection interests us. We like what Bob Ezrin, Steve Lilywhite, Dangermouse do, to name very few of many. Listening to many different styles of music is always inspiring.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: This is a very cozy, and comfortable place to create. We do a lot of work with songwriters and producers, typically working a lot on vocals and guitar, piano, and brass overdubs. Although we do still record full bands live, our intention was to create an inspiring place to work on the more meticulous aspects of recording, mainly the overdubs and mixing stages, and to have well treated, acoustically sound rooms to work in.
