Interview with Alexandru Turcu

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Both. I own some analog synths and effects and they're amazing. Analog gear has a certain flavour and character. Digital, because it is easy to recall, and easier to work with. Also it's cleaner, and sometimes you want that, and you can get "surgical" with it.

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

  4. A: Music. Making it in all the possible ways.

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

  6. A: When is the deadline.

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

  8. A: A laptop, my uad, a microphone, a guitar and a pair of headphones.

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

  10. A: Started playing guitar when I was 15. Had some rock/indie bands until I was 19. At 20 years old I got offered to be the guitarist of one of the biggest pop stars in my country. Few years later I started to orchestrate and produce the live shows for the artist and in the same time I started as a session musician in music studios. And then it clicked. I made myself a small bedroom studio and started from there.

  11. Q: How would you describe your style?

  12. A: Clean but with a lot of energy.

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

  14. A: Try to get the best possible recording.

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

  16. A: I mainly make pop music, but I've done rock, raggaeton, experimental music, electronic music.

  17. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  18. A: Being a proffesional musician makes me see music with a lot more depth, and while producing or mixing I can see more than just technical decisions.

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

  20. A: As a musician I can understand what the artist desires, and make the technical decisions to fulfill that.

  21. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  22. A: Nothing special: a laptop, a pair of Focal speakers, some analog synths, over a dozen of guitars and a good room.

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

  24. A: My musical "heroes" come from the whole spectrum of music: James Blake, Ben Howard, Steven Wilson, Robert Fripp, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Travis Scott, Oasis, Rosalia. On the technical side I like Andrew Scheps, Mike Dean and Sergiu Musteata.

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

  26. A: Typically, my role is between producing and mixing/mastering. Clients either come with an unfinished song, and I co-produce it and mix&master, or we make a song from scratch, or they come with a finished production only for mixing&mastering.
