Great pianist & nice voice! Manu has a wide musical culture and different influences that appear in most of his recordings! It was very nice to work with him.
Nice voice and great keyboards, It was nice working with Manu.
Manu came with new ideas and different approaches about my music almost every time we talked!
He likes mixing musical influences and different recording techniques and adds a unique flavor to your recording no matter the music genre...
He is a very interesting and experienced musician!
Interview with MusicShotCom
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I usually focus on bringing to every track a little bit of the magic of a live session: No matter how prepared the production is, I still input some form of improvised "surprise" to it! That is why I usually record directly (dawless) my music ideas into the 32 physical tracks of my mixer (Computers only come to work after AFTER, if and when needed)..
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Work hard on anything you do: be precise, but do not overdo it (no need for re-recording the vocals 40times!), 'cause in most cases, it looses the power of the initial approach
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually record directly (dawless) my music takes (ideas) into the 32 physical tracks of my mixing console (20+12). After that, I have up to 32 high quality tracks that I can take to my DAW on MacOS to work on: edit, pre-mix, equalize, fine-tune, add needed effects, etc... When everybody involved (near or far)) is satisfied with their input and additions, then, we go on to mixing during a minimum of 2-3 days... Finally, I put on my mastering "shoes" and finalise the production. I usually propose 2-3 final versions to the "last person in charge of deciding".
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Sting, Manu Chao, Keith Jarrett, Stevie Wonder... but also Gotye, Stromae, Francis Cabrel, Gabriel o Pensador, Pablo Milanes, Tania Maria, Bob Marley, Dave Brubeck...
