Interview with Alex Symeonides

Can you share one music production tip?
Focus on your composition and performance! No matter how nice a recording sounds, if the music isn't good it's not going to be a hit. My job as a Producer/Engineer is to capture your best performance, and to help bring your music to the world!
What type of music do you usually work on?
Last year, when I was working at Guildhall, 60% of my audio work was in classical music and 40% was in jazz and pop. More recently, I've been working with pop-rock and post-rock bands.
What's your typical work process?
Once the recording date is set, I liaise with the client to try and find out as much as I can about the music to be recorded (instruments/number of pieces/original music or covers/purpose of recording/demo recordings of the music to be recorded) Then I prep for the session (choose mics/draw up a studio plan/create a desk template and a Pro Tools session) During recording sessions I often act as Engineer/Producer. That means once the sound is set for each piece, I can focus on capturing the best performance. I follow and mark-up scores if possible and keep a take log to make editing easier.
