Interview with Adam Galloway

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: In a 2 month period I was able to create 50 (2-3 minute) instrumentals in a huge variety of styles and sign to a production music library. It was an amazing solo experience because of the deadline and also the challenge of working on a variety of styles in one project!

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Releasing singles to all platforms every month, along with remix contests and mixing/mastering work for some clients!

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: Due to budget restrictions, I grew up learning everything in-the-box (digital), but also gained experience using analog gear. Personally I've grown into the digital world quite naturally, therefore the results of my work come out the same or better using digital-only processing.

  7. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  8. A: I guarantee 100% satisfaction for my clients by discussing their vision for the project before work begins, along with sending files back and forth until their desired outcome is achieved

  9. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  10. A: I absolutely love to create music or at least use my ears and skills to help others create the music they want to create!

  11. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  12. A: The most common question I get is: how many stems can I send for the song? It's usually best to send around 5-15 stems, but anything more than 15 I will accept with at a higher premium. Maximum stems accepted = 35

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

  14. A: Most people think that music producers who work at home are starving artists, not making any money, and that there isn't much work or career opportunities in the field, but this is incorrect!

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

  16. A: What is the overall final vision you have for your project? (This can be described in words or through audio or video examples)

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

  18. A: Keyboard, computer, headphones, speaker monitors, and a power generator

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

  20. A: I've been producing music for fun since 2008, but started getting more serious in 2012 and started spending more time mixing, writing, composing scores, signing with music libraries, and just developing skills while trying to also building a portfolio. In 2017 I decided to pursue a career as a solo EDM producer/artist under the name Muzikm4n, along with helping other musicians out through my services.

  21. Q: How would you describe your style?

  22. A: Atmospheric but composition underneath to give the song a solid backbone. I've tried to take elements from newer producer/artists like Zedd, Illenium, and others, and combined their style with my favorite music growing up, 70's and 80's music to create my own musical style.

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

  24. A: I would love to collaborate with Illenium, Owl City, Lights, Lindsay Sterling, and Phil Collins

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

  26. A: EQ: Low cut any element below 50 Hz on everything except for kick or sub bass.

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

  28. A: The most common productions I work with are hip hop, EDM, and occasionally some singer-songwriter records.

  29. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  30. A: I am quickly able to turn nothing into something, going from a blank project to a full song idea very fast!

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

  32. A: I like to think the element I add to a song that not everyone adds is the ability to combine styles and influences into each song without anyone really noticing the individual influences for each part of the song.

  33. Q: What's your typical work process?

  34. A: For a new song, I like to start with writing everything first on piano in the project, then expanding, arranging, sound design, and mixing is the fun part! For a mixing project, I organize and color code the project, then do a volume mix, then EQ/compression, then effects and final mix down For a film score, I begin with the director by discussing their vision, executing that vision to the best of my ability, then showing the director, rinse/repeat until the vision is fully brought to life in the eyes and ears of the director.

  35. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  36. A: 2015 iMac, Yamaha MM6 keyboard, Mackie CR3 monitors, Sony MDR 7506 pro headphones, PreSonus Audiobox USB audio interface

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

  38. A: Modern musicians: Illenium, Owl City, Kygo, Zedd, Said The Sky, Martin Garrix Older musicians: Genesis, Marillion, Pink Floyd, Dream Theater, Yes

  39. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  40. A: Online Mixing and Mastering songs for artists, along with composing scores for short films.
