Cal pegs himself to be an engineer but his abilities exceed that of an ordinary mixing engineer. He is the most insightful, creative and talented engineer & producer I have ever worked with and his work is nothing short of professional. He is a patient perfectionist, easygoing and usually has better ideas than you do for your own project. He is a joy to work with and someone you can truly trust.
Interview with Calum Brockie
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What are your influences? What are your goals for the project? What do you expect from me?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be upfront about what you want and what you expect, don't be shy!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started out engineering for local bands in Boston before I moved to Los Angeles and got into the pop production/writing world. I spent 2019 in Berlin, Germany producing and writing for artists based both in Europe and around the World.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually produce rhythmic pop songs/indie pop but I have made lots of music in different genres that I've still been able to bring a lot to. Mixing-wise I've done a lot of indie rock, hiphop and world music.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I was a composer before I started mixing so I bring the perspective of a writer who's first concern was always telling a story through sound. I spend a lot of time creating unique sounds and ideas for the productions I work on so that the track has it's own unique sonic identity as well as it's musical and lyrical one.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Producing and mixing songs for clients. Taking a song whatever stage it's currently in and working with the artist to make it as awesome as possible!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Creating a dynamic arrangement, finding unique hooky sounds
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I get inspired by artists/producers who are unabashedly themselves. People like Tycho, Flume and Danger Mouse come to mind.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I get to visit so many different people's musical worlds for a day or two
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I would say that I use a pop-style sheen and attention to detail to expose the grit and emotion of whatever music I work on
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog is amazing for tracking but the portability/ability to recall digital sessions makes it the best choice for mixing in my view
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: For each production/mixing decision you make; remember to consider it's context in the whole song, not just in the isolated section or instrument
