Interview with Aleksandr MGS

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

  2. A: In 1990, being able to play the guitar a little and compose all sorts of musical phrases, I was invited to the ASTRAL group, since then there have been many rehearsals for concerts and then many other groups! But I've always been fascinated by studio magic. Subsequently, I devote more and more time to studio guitar recording!

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

  24. A: The first draft idea of a melody for making music entails a second, more interesting one. Sometimes after 10 boring melodies 1 beautiful one is born. Also try to layer one melody on top of another and at some point remove the old one and listen to how the new one works on its own. Always create melodies that simply come from the heart, from within, then you can always correct everything and remove unnecessary things.
