I will transform your ideas into professional songs. FREE PREVIEW.
I'm Feltz, a music producer, pianist and composer from Milan.
I started to play the piano when I was sixteen, but I took music production seriously almost 10 years ago.
I'm mainly focused on pop/acoustic, electronic, and soundtrack music. In 2020 I've earned a bachelor of arts in music production and made my first LP "Desing Electronica" a soundtrack for media and television published by the label The Scoring House. Collaborating with other musicians and creating high-quality standard works has become my major priority. I currently work with Cubase 9.5 which I use for the production, mixing and mastering sessions.

Interview with Feltz
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Usually, they look for full music production. My answer is always "yes, I can make a free preview for you", the if He/She likes it, we're both happy to work together
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I think my music ideas brings a lot from pop/acoustic indie, soundtracks and electronic music. Blending many genres works better for my creativity, instead of being focused on a specific one.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be aware of looking for someone who is a good human being, patient and capable of listening to your needs.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Less is more, be super focused on melodic and harmonic ideas. If a song is good, it will sound with just a piano or guitar. All the other instruments will make it sounds amazing.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My working progress is based on different steps; the first one consists in listening to the ideas and reference tracks (if the client wants to emulate a specific mood or sound). Then I proceed with the production, which is crucial. As a pianist and composer, I'm very focused on chord progressions, which can make the song sounds modern and interesting. After that, I send a preview to the client and discuss with him eventual revisions and changes. After the production is finished, I proceed with the mixing and mastering sessions.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I recently worked on a song (you can listen to it on top) from a superb female French singer. I'm very proud of the arrangement, I think it fits well the vocals and creates the right atmosphere.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both are useful, so why avoid one?
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I'll give my best to make their song as good as it should be.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: the fact that is unpredictable
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: many people think that loud is better, which can be true, but with a super mix, otherwise, it will sound squashed.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: if they want a preview of the work before buying anything. I like to give a demonstration of my skills and capacities before talking about money. This is my way of building trust with the client.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My piano, headphones, Ipod, speakers, and last but not least, creativity.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
