    Interview with Aleksis Tristan Shaw

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

    2. A: It may have been short-lived but I produced the Blood Trine podcast in its entirety with a team of just three people, myself included. I composed almost 2 hrs of original music for the three episodes we released; directed and recorded all vocal parts; mixed and mastered all audio - and even acted in it.

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

    4. A: A licensable music pack of dark, solo piano pieces.

    5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

    6. A: Digital; if you do digital right, laymen won't be able to distinguish between the two.

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

    8. A: Deadlines will be set and met. Consistency and reliability are paramount to me.

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

    10. A: Collaborating with other artists and helping them create art that creates the biggest impact on the target audience. Giving memorable and evocative experiences to our shared audience.

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

    12. A: What genre/format are you working in and what kind of music are you looking for? How long do you want the track to be? If it's a larger product like a full score or a series of works - what is your budget? How many instruments/level of complexity are you expecting? Do you have any references of what you want it to sound like?

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

    14. A: Know what you want and find reference examples if you can.

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

    16. A: My computer and everything on it; a good pair of headphones; a good microphone; portable wi-fi; and a cellphone. I don't need much hardware!

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

    18. A: I've been producing seriously for a little over 4 years now.

    19. Q: How would you describe your style?

    20. A: I'm focusing my brand on dark fantasy/horror right now, that's probably the aesthetic I like working with the most. Those are the genres I'm focusing on in games, TV/film, and podcasts. Even when I'm doing hip-hop beats, I'd mostly like to work with dark trap/trap metal artists.

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

    22. A: Too many to count. In gaming, maybe the SIE team behind the Soulsborne games. If in film, Ari Aster or Robert Eggers. TV - Ryan Murphy. Music? Anybody from Lingua Ignota to Megan the Stallion.

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

    24. A: Subtractive EQ for sub freq on all non-bass instruments.

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

    26. A: Mostly orchestral/classical or ambient, particularly for fantasy and horror projects.

    27. Q: What's your strongest skill?

    28. A: Melodies and toplining

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

    30. A: A memorable melody, an evocative chord progression, and a unique approach to harmony and arrangement.

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

    32. A: Many: Steven Melin, Andrew Huang, Charles Cornell, Myuu, Lucas King, Akira Yamaoka, Christopher Larkin, Charlie Clouser, Hans Zimmer, Peter Gundry, Bobby Krlic, Danny Elfman, Jason Graves, and more.

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

    34. A: Original soundtrack composition for indie game developers.
