Interview with DTronic Sound Inc.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How much do you charge? The cost will vary based on the needs of the project. Could you please tell me a little more about your project so that I can provide you with a quote? How long does it take to complete a song? Every song can vary based on the needs of the project, please provide me with more details about your project in order for me to provide a ballpark estimate. Why is a contract necessary? Music is a collaborative process. By engaging in a binding agreement, we have both established a level of trust between ourselves to satisfy our commitments to the project. We can then focus on creating great music.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: 1. Pre-production: I discuss with the artist their goals. I get a clear idea of the project and if we will be modifying existing material from the artist or creating something brand new. I typically ask for references from the artist to capture the atheistic and vibe. 2. Recording: Having a session or multiple sessions with artist to create the music and master recording including (i.e recoding vocals, programming instrumentals), so that I have all the necessary components of the music and recording. 3. Mixing/Music Production: Working alone, or with the artist to mix the master recording and providing any additional music production needed to satisfy the original aesthetic goals set by the artist. We may decide to do additional recording and songwriting if there is anything we still feel is missing. 4. Mastering: Providing final mastering of the song to the client for distribution, release, pitch. 5. File delivery: Delivering files to the client in preferred formats.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Artists: Linkin Park, Avicii, Justin Bieber, Skrillex, Blackbear. Engineers: Josh Gudwin, Andy Wallace Writers: Poobear, Jason Evigan, Max Martin.

A: I really enjoy the ability to turn a simple idea that lives into your head, into a tangible medium that someone else can enjoy.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Linkin Park. I think they are fantastic songwriters and as producers aren't afraid to break boundaries with their sounds.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misnomer is that there is a "correct way" to create music. I feel that everyone has a different creative process, and that there is no one size fits all glove.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Can you tell me a little bit more about your project? What services are you looking to have performed? Would you be willing to show me some of your previous work? Is there anything you feel that you would like to improve in future projects? Do you have any upcoming performances? What is your budget/deadline? Do you need additional equipment or performers to complete your project.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I earned a degree in Studio Production from SUNY Purchase (2015). Before graduating, I was freelancing at a local studio (The Loft) and produced an original song "Never Let You Go" with Reel Twin that played in an ad for SUNY Purchase at an NYFCC Game at Yankee Stadium. After graduating, I started my own small business DTronic Sound Inc.
