Interview with Psya

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

  2. A: I once re-harmonized, recorded, mixed & mastered a Bjork track for a 10-voice mixed choir for a client which was a very refreshing challenge as Bjork has a reputation for unconventional phrasing and choice of melodies/mood and building a fresh-sounding arrangement while preserving the context of the main composition is something I navigated in a way that I'm proud of.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Working on my personal projects and collaborations with other artists right now.

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: Neither, both are tools which could be used to supplement different compositions. It's only the composition and the artistic vision which would determine the final choice of gear be it analog or digital.

  7. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  8. A: It's not complete when it's finished, it's finished when it's complete. You will always be fully satisfied with the end product.

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

  10. A: That I enjoy all challenges and obstacles that come while working on my projects.

  11. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  12. A: Can it be fixed in post? and my answer is that it can be but keep your expectations in check because if it's recorded/generated right at the source then it'll automatically sound good

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

  14. A: It's not a real job

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

  16. A: The overall setting of the track, the thought behind it, any specific service-related requests, technical details etc.

  17. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  18. A: There's a triangle that determines the output you get out of independent service providers which is between fast cheap and good: if it's fast and good it won't be cheap if it's fast and cheap it won't be good if it;s good and cheap then it won't be fast

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

  20. A: Flint, solar panel, tent, swiss knife and satellite phone because I can use the best studios after I'm off of it.

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

  22. A: I've been involved with music since I was 11, exploring the guitar and eventually turning to songwriting and production, it's been 14 years since then and I've been on a constant ride towards learning all I can about my craft.

  23. Q: How would you describe your style?

  24. A: Fresh, Unique, Experimental and Eclectic

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

  26. A: Raye because I like the aura she exudes. Tough, mysterious, spontaneous and wise, it would be fun to work with her.

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

  28. A: Compression can be used to specifically place elements in the stereo field by changing the attack and release times of the compressor. Fast attack slow release settings would sound further back in the mix and vice versa for slow attack fast release settings.

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

  30. A: I work on a mix of a lot of different genres but predominantly work on pop, hip hop and rap.

  31. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  32. A: Sound design is one of my strongest skills

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

  34. A: I bring my taste for the uncharted and grounding in the known to every project.

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

  36. A: I first assimilate the track's core elements and where the core value of the composition lies, be it in the rawness of the performance or the groove of the melody I'm able to identify and accentuate the same so the beauty of the tracks shines through sonically.

  37. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  38. A: I have a 24 channnel SSL AWS 900+ console coupled with Prism AD/DAs and outboard gear like Neve 8801, sansamp, dbx 162SL, Lexicon MX300

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

  40. A: they would definitely be Timbaland, Kanye West, J Dilla, Stephen, Diplo and Dr. Dre.

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

  42. A: More often than not I'm called upon for tight songwriting situations where time is of the essence and am known for experimental yet charming pop/hip-hop productions.
