Interview with Eli Louis Productions
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Vulfpeck. I think that their setup is simple and direct which is absolutely brilliant. Their music is very well written. They are incredibly talented musicians that look like they really love what they do and have a passion for "the groove".
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Try something new every project! It will keep your mind fresh. Even if 9 out of 10 times the idea you have is garbage, that tenth time it may be something that you really enjoy.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I would say Rock, R&B, and Metal are the main types I work on. Anything that has a solid groove is my favorite stuff to work on.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I am a very fast learner. I like to understand things, especially when it comes to audio.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I believe that the idea isn't bringing anything to a song. The main goal is to service the song to the best that the song can be. Every song is different and can be performed in many different ways. I aim to make the song the best that it can be in whichever role I am tasked to play.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: After a good dose of coffee, I like to get very organized. This means organizing the session files, the session itself and making sure I have my head wrapped around every inch of a project before I dive in. I make sure to document all necessary things worth being noted. But most importantly I spend time stepping back and evaluating my work to ensure I don't drain myself. At the end of a project I double check to make sure all loose ends have been tied up, and then sit back... probably for some more coffee.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio setup is always changing. Currently I am working on building a 28 track mobile rig that will allow me to record bands at their practice spaces. However some staples are my laptop, my JBL's, and my own two ears.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I think we can all agree that music is something which connects people. I think that beyond anyones technical abilities, whoever is successful in this is an inspiration. The true masters are the people that can take their technical abilities to bring out the connecting quality of music. In the engineering world I look up to names like Bob Clearmountain, Derek Ali, Sylvia Massey, and Susan Rogers among many other talents.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I am mainly a recording/ mixing engineer. However every client is different which also means that every job is different. I like to try to adapt to the needs of the client to fill in the blanks. This mentality has turned me into a producer, editing engineer, mastering engineer and even a session musician!
