Interview with Anthony Walter

  1. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  2. A: I'm too discret if you ask me (Introvert alert). Mainly because I'm always a little severe with my own work; "Nah, it's not that good, others do way better" kind of thinking. I did this for 3 years. I'm now focusing on "How can I make this even, powerful, intense, beautiful?"

  3. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  4. A: I'm not a magician. Go play Yu gi oh if you need one.

  5. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  6. A: Your needs? Your influences? Your intentions? What can be done for you?

  7. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  8. A: There is no more desert island, this world is overpopulated. Everywhere you go, there's always a schmuck to ask you to pay for something.

  9. Q: How would you describe your style?

  10. A: I'm straight ahead, no bull**** about giving advice or my feelings about a song. When the process of production is on, you have to be true with your choices and take options.

  11. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  12. A: 'Keep It Simple, Stupid' approach, working hard on the simpliest and the best way to make your music alive and intense.

  13. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  14. A: Simple home studio and open space, cubase 8 home station, rme fireface ufx, Kemper profiler and dynaudio Lyd 48, coffee machine and a loooooooot of passion!

  15. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  16. A: Jeff Lommis, Chris Cornell, Ian Thornley, Lana Del Rey, David Axelrod, Tue Madsen, Andy Wallace, Terry Date, Colin Richardson

  20. A: To follow the artist process, from rehearsals (leading to pre production) to Mixing/ Mastering step.

  21. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  22. A: I listen. I don't talk. I make sound, propose options by showing what can ben done.

  23. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  24. A: Various genres of metal, hip-hop, dialogs and post production.

  25. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  26. A: KISS -> Keep It Simple Stupid (If you watch the Office, you know the quote) Less is more, if you feel you've pushed it too far, it's probably because you did. Take a few steps back and focus on what's important.

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: Culf of luna. They came from metal band to producer/ingineer/mixer artists, focusing on the creative process as a whole. They took options and made choices, defining their own, way of composing, sounding et being on stage as a band. There's in no more "will see it in the mix".
