Music as a texture in your heart and mind.

Interview with Blue Glass Productions
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Damon Albarn because, in my humble opinion, he is one of the most creative and versatile musicians/songwriters of his era and has an elegant style when it comes to songwriting. He produces music than touches on many different genres that are all unmistakably his style.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: A friendly, courteous, honest, patient and punctual experience working with me :-)
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: It will be a first draft pick lol. I am very prompt when it comes to schedules and deadlines so speed is not a concern. People tend to think, however, that when they request a song or a production that it will come back after the first draft being exactly the way they imagined. Getting the right product depends on communication of ideas and desires for the direction of the music. It will take some sculpting to get exactly what you're looking for and we will work together to bring it to life.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: How would you like the music to feel and what images/scenes play out in your mind when you imagine listening to the music? How should the production be sonically and what sort of tone do you desire? Soft, aggressive, warm, bright etc. How do you want the music to evolve/progress. What sort of journey are we going on here?
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Connecting with others, creating art together and communicating emotion through music and sound.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Groove, mellow timbres and harmonic layers. I'm also skilled at programming ambient and evolving synth pads.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both, because nothing exists in isolation and one should use all of the available tools at one's disposal to create something unique and interesting. If it suits the sound, it doesn't matter if it's analog or digital.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: It has been 11 years since I started making music. I began making simple beats and gradually learned to play guitar and then bass. I interned in a recording studio for 4 years and then studied audio engineering at Cape Audio College for another 3 years.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Smooth, groovy, relaxing and meditative.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Hip-Hop Beat production and session bass work for R&B tracks.
