Interview with Trang Ngo

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

  2. A: Laptop (and charger), a USB microphone, a midi-keyboard, a pair of earphones/headphones and a positive mind-state.

  3. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  4. A: One of the projects that I'm especially proud of is a commercial song that I wrote for Unilever - Dove for the launching of one of their shampoo products. It was the first time I worked with a brand on a commercial advert song. I chose to focus on the message that the brand is aspired to share widely - I built a story around it with specific details and a top-line lyric that people can get inspired from. The song was somewhat a success to me and I hope it has been a success to the brand.
