Interview with Jack Muta

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

  2. A: I am extremely proud of a collaborative song I created with my brother in which I produced the instrumental and he wrote the lyrics and performed the song in addition to guitar ad libs. The track was unique, had a great vibe, and sounded extremely professional and polished. It was also rewarding working with my brother on this track.

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

  4. A: I am working on two personal EPs, a collaborative blues/electronic EP, two other collaborative songs and a number of instrumentals which will be sold to artists.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: I am new to SoundBetter and don't know many producers/artists on this platform.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Digital simply because I don't have much analog equipment on hand.

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

  10. A: That I will work hard to deliver everything they're looking for, that I will be very communicative, and that I will never accept a project that is over my head.

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

  12. A: That I get to exercise my creativity. I get a rush of endorphins creating music that I am happy with.

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

  14. A: Are you able to make it sound good? A: Yes.

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

  16. A: A big misconception around music production, specifically in hip hop, is that we take ten minutes to make a beat. A good production takes several hours over several days and weeks to sound good.

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

  18. A: What are they looking to get out of this? Are there any tracks/artists with a similar sound to what they're seeking? Are there any unique aspects that should be kept in mind for this project? What mood/message are they trying to communicate with this track? What does their ideal final product look/sound like?

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

  20. A: It is better to communicate too much than too little to make sure the final product is as perfect as possible.

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

  22. A: Midi keyboard, computer, microphone, headphones, and a power source.

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

  24. A: I have been producing music for over seven years. I've been a drummer and bass guitarist for over a decade. I started out making beats for fun and it has blossomed from a hobby to a career.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: Alternative hip hop with popular rap/hip hop influences.
