jabeau on SoundBetter

I've produced music for short films and have collaborated with various artists.

I'm a freelance music producer, arranger, and mixing engineer. The music I typically work on has elements of jazz/hip-hop/RnB, but I often work with alt-pop/folk/classical as well. I studied film music, then music production/audio engineering. I'm a lifelong musician. I play piano (classically trained, jazz influenced), guitar (classically trained), and cello. I'm very adaptable to the style of each every artist I work with, so I'm confident that I'll be able to create music tailored specifically to you.

Interview with jabeau

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

  2. A: Customers commonly ask what my rates are. My rates depend heavily on the length of the production and whether you're looking to license the production or buy the production.

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

  4. A: The biggest misconception is that I spend 1-2 hours on a production. It takes several hours spread out in order to comeback with a fresh set of ears.

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

  6. A: It was a personal production of mine. The track is called "Bliss" (on streaming services). It was my first time recording strings, flute, and drums in a studio. It was especially difficult because I wasn't able to record them at the same time so the magic was in the mix. I had to make it sound like they were all in the same space. I'm very happy with the end result and it was quite rewarding.

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

  8. A: I working on music for a video game, a live show of a remix I made of an orchestral track, and some personal productions.

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

  10. A: An analog mastering engineer named Andres Mayo. I've used him for a couple of my productions and I was always very pleased.

  11. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  12. A: I'd say digital only because I've probably haven't had enough experience with analog.

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

  14. A: I promise no matter how many revisions you will be satisfied with the end result!

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

  16. A: I love moment in producing where you find the element that MAKES the production.

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

  18. A: I often they ask if they have any songs/artists that they want to sound like to give me a better idea of the direction they want to go in.

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

  20. A: If you have a clear idea for what you want, it's very useful to have references (songs, artists, etc.)

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

  22. A: An upright piano, a vocal mic, condenser pair (for the piano), a laptop with DAW, and a cello.

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

  24. A: I'd like to work with artists that are very passionate about what they do. They don't necessarily need to have a clear vision of what they want. I'm here to facilitate that. As long as they know that they want "it", I can certainly be of good use.

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

  26. A: I bring a unique take on harmony while still respecting the genre of music.

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

  28. A: Some musicians that inspire me are, Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans, Flume, Getter, Jacob Collier.

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

  30. A: I'm a lifelong musician. I studied film music at a conservatory in Belgium and then went on to study at Abbey Road Institute in London. There I learned the ins and out of a music studio and music production. Immediately after I started to work as a freelance producer/mixer for artists I met along the way.

  31. Q: How would you describe your style?

  32. A: Harmonically rooted in jazz but lean towards more harsher electronic sounds. I often do venture into R&B and Soul as well.

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

  34. A: Before working on any project. Take notes on what you'd specifically like to work on so that you're not hopping all around the track while you work. It's much more productive and the final result will be closer to what you imagined.

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

  36. A: I usually work on electronic/trap music but I'm extremely flexible.

  37. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  38. A: I have a great (production) ear to mimic other genres of music that I'm not typically used to.

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

  40. A: I typically start at the piano to get any melodic/harmonic ideas going. I then think of the mood of the track and select my instruments/samples accordingly. Once I have something of substance I give it a rest and when I come back to it I listen through a couple times taking notes on the mix/arrangement/production overall. I take the notes into account and make the changes. I repeat this until I'm happy with the production.

  41. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  42. A: I have a mac mini with Ableton, Logic Pro, ProTools, and Melodyne. I have a pair of yamaha HS8's, a roland fp30x keyboard, sm7b, sm57, sm58, and a sm81. As for instruments I have a classical guitar, ukelele, and a theremini.

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

  44. A: I often produce music for visuals, such as video games, short promotional clips, etc.
