    Giovanni is wonderful to work with. For starters, he is VERY patience, which was a huge plus for me. I had mixes that his mastering work showed me weren't finished. Once they were, his mastering made them sound like a million bucks! The quality of his work is matched by his service, that is to say, it is all exceptional. He is a master at his craft and I look forward to working with him again!

Interview with Giovanni Cordova

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Depends of what the song needs.

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

  4. A: The fact that I'm working on art. And that every single time I get to hear something different and unique.

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

  6. A: My passion for the beauty of sound has always been part of my life. Long before my studies at SAE I was fascinated by different instruments, tonalities and mixes.

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

  8. A: I'm open to work on any type of music honestly. I don't want to put boundaries in order to improve and learn.

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

  10. A: Probably thinking that mixing/mastering can make a bad recording/production sound good. A song is like a dish: the final presentation will be the best only if the quality of the ingredients is the best.

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

  12. A: My actual setup. Laptop, Headphones, Interface, something to power it.

  13. Q: How would you describe your style?

  14. A: Constantly evolving.

  15. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  16. A: Precision in everything from the first message with the client up until I deliver the last file.

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

  18. A: I bring cohesion and balance without loosing the natural dynamics of the performance.

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

  20. A: I like to over communicate with my client at first. This way I can get more about the vision before I start to work on the project up until the final version.

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

  22. A: I tend to pick up a song from anywhere in between a rough production and a finished mix and do whatever is necessary to push it to the finish line.

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

  24. A: Any artists who put their soul in what they do.

  25. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  26. A: I have a compact portable setup which I can bring with me when I'm travelling and plug into any studio I'm in around the World.

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

  28. A: Invest in your monitoring. This can be your room or a good pair of headphones.

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

  30. A: I am really inspired by Mark Ronson, Diplo and Luca Pretolesi.
