Interview with edmond redd
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Arrangement and distribution balance (of the instruments that is) can go a long long way
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Orchestral/ cinematic instrumentals
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Orchestral arrangement
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: emotions? balance? a mix of both? I usually try to understand what's the core of the piece itself, and if I can underline that core, then I'll add whatever is needed.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Usually, everything starts with a melody. Either I write it down, hum it into my phone, or record it on the fly, if I'm near my workstation. I have a folder of 'ideas'. All I have to do is pick one, and develop it. Sometimes, and to break the cycle, I start with something else. Percussion for example. Or maybe a patch, a sound or an instrument. I usually arrange/fix/mix as I go so whenever I'm done, there's a little to be done. It might not be the best option (professionals usually recommend to wear one hat at a time) but this what works for me best.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a typical home studio setup. I work on Mac. I've been working on Apple computers for more than 15 years now. I use Logic, and I use a lot of their native plugins. I do use a lot of virtual instruments, mainly using Kontakt as a plugin.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I like the work of many composers, and like to discover a lot of 'underrated' writers. 2 steps from hell were really an eye opener into this specific genre, but as far as I remember, there was a band called Therion that really made me appreciate the mix of classical and rock music.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I usually write orchestral music geared towards trailer. I use my classical education in music in order to orchestrate, while keeping the arrangements current. I also play the piano, which in turn can help any singer/songwriter or even full bands in getting a professional sounding piano in their recordings
