Interview with ericSon audio
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Centered around my 8 gen i-7 super computer, Ableton is my actual instrument. I do use a midi keyboard, Maschine2 drumpad, Gibson Les Paul, mic locker, a mountain of VSTs, retro Yamaha keyboards (think samba rhythm)
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: A track I'm thankful for... I recreated Jesus Walks by Kanye West. While in Louisville KY, I worked at a studio and recorded tons of people. During a break from clients, a friend asked me to show him some beats I made. He loved the demo of Jesus Walks, so I recorded him freestyling and we were done in about 15 minutes. With the vocals completed, I recreated a better instrumental and mixed them until satisfied. We did 1 revision and released the track. It was the first track I worked on with someone else, that aside from their lyrics, I did everything. Seeing a person get excited over something you made is a great feeling, having many people enjoy something you create with others is an even greater experience.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Dance tracks, finding Tennessee locals to write/record with and publishing my website.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I'm sure there are, but navigating SoundBetter is d*mn near impossible.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital. It's flexible, can emulate analog when needed, always moving forward.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To have fun. And make the best music we possibly can.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The music!! Traveling, meeting people, going crazy at concerts!! Being self employed, forever learning, and making a studio noob feel at home!
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: "Can you turn my headphones up?"
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That computer musicians aren't for real. The lead singer is 100% responsible for all things in the track. DJ's are bad producers.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Have a clear idea of what you want. Even if nothing else exists yet, keep that idea alive and find the people that will help you reach that goal. One of my strengths is working incredibly well with others, because communication is king. So call me if you have questions (423-297-4086)
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: PC, Yamaha Monitors, Les Paul, mobile hotspot, Traktor S4.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I would record the local pop stations on my tape recorder, playing back My Chemical Romance or TI late into the night after being told to sleep. That led to mixing live events and working in Audio/Visuals since a youth. Production and Audio Engineering have been my sole focus since 2015.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Evolving. Grew up listening to Classic Rock and Atlanta Rap. This has led to making Electronic Music. Sometimes you can dance, sometimes it makes you cry.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Flume, his tracks are pieces of my life. His collaborations are incredible, the production must get wack sometimes, yet it's incredibly moving.
