#296: Embracing Vintage Workflows with Julian Fulco Perron

Julian Fulco Perron is a musician and filmmaker from Denver, Colorado. His music and art harken back to the late 60s and early 70s psychedelic rock. Julian goes to great lengths to capture the feeling of the era by using many of the same tools of the time. He films his videos on Super 8 and experiments with various mediums to achieve a sound full of character and unique charm. Julian and I spoke about the challenges presented by using vintage workflows and how those obstacles have enhanced his creativity. Julian explains his process for creating his work and how the adventurous spirit of artists such as The Beatles and The Beach Boys influences how he produces his art.

#293: Simplicity Inspires Creativity with Greg Meads of The Low End

Greg Meadows is an acoustic singer-songwriter who plays music as The Low End. He started the project to escape the frustration of complicated computer-based setups and overly processed music. Greg wanted to embrace performance and humanity in his recordings, so he turned to his trusty Tascam 4-track tape recorder. His music emphasizes emotion and performance over production and perfection. I learned about Greg's work while watching his video about a Tascam mixer. I was blown away by his music and spent the rest of the night devouring everything he has created. Greg and I spoke about his work and the philosophy behind it. He spoke about how reducing his setup helped him learn the subtleties of recording and production.

#292: 7 Continent Collaboration w/ Single Sonic Seven

Single Sonic Seven is an album created in collaboration with musicians on all seven continents. The two year-long project’s roots are found in quarantine-era Berlin, while its final path was deeply shaped by a personal connection to the war in Ukraine. I spoke with Single Sonic Seven producer Ethan Miska about the project. Ethan shared some wisdom and insight about collaborating with so many people on a single project. We even spoke about how his new hobby of making his own peanut butter made him a better producer and how a little (but not too much) chaos can help our creativity.

#291: Should You Upgrade to Mac OS Ventura?

When our computer operating systems get updated there’s the promise of new features that will improve our workflow and make our lives a little easier. But should we update our music-making computers with the new OS?  Not right away!  In this episode of the Music Production Podcast, I discuss a few practical reasons you don’t want to update right away and some more philosophical reasons why waiting is a good idea. When new things come out, it can wreak havoc on our mindset, which could jeopardize our ability to make music. I have a few thoughts on how we can protect ourselves from potentially dangerous ways of thinking!

#288: Trusting Your Intuition with Cobaine Ivory

Cobaine Ivory is a multi-instrumentalist and Grammy-Nominated producer. He has worked with Dr. Dre, H.E.R., and Anderson Paak. Cobaine has composed music for Disney, SONY Pictures, and Ubisoft.  Cobaine and I spoke in depth about his work and overall creative philosophies.  It was a lot of fun talking with Cobaine, I really appreciate his values and beliefs. How he lives his life informs how he makes music. Cobaine has a wealth of knowledge and experience, and I learned a lot talking with him!

#286: Songwriting, Creative Process, and Ear Health with Doug Hoyer

Doug Hoyer is a Canadian singer/songwriter who has garnered 1 million Spotify streams and licensed music for television. Doug's work has received critical acclaim and he works by day as a hearing aid practitioner.  I had a great conversation with Doug about his work and techniques for writing and completing music. Doug shared a ton of insights and strategies he regularly uses. He showcased his homemade telephone microphone during the show, and I may have asked him a few too many questions about ear care and hearing health.  Listen on <a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/music-production-podcast/id1212124420"> iTunes</a> or <a href= "http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/music-production-podcast?refid=stpr"> Stitcher</a> or <a href= "https://play.google.com/music/listen#/ps/Ip424c7a3w32gzox6c2bnwexy3q"> Google Play</a> or <a href= "https://open.spotify.com/show/2R5hFhExyUzbI7jD7eauck">Spotify</a>; watch on <a href= "https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLk4jo7_Rx2-2mjUoTXTL4u0iUH5_XqBYi"> YouTube</a> Show Notes: ---Doug's Site - <a href= "https://www.doughoyer.com/">https://www.doughoyer.com/</a> ---Doug's Album Getting Older - <a href= "https://doughoyer.bandcamp.com/album/getting-older">https://doughoyer.bandcamp.com/album/getting-older</a> ---"Meet Me in the Pale Moonlight" by Doug Hoyer - <a href= "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xN7NLKWol9I">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xN7NLKWol9I</a> ---The Magnetic Fields - <a href= "http://www.houseoftomorrow.com/">http://www.houseoftomorrow.com/</a> ---Shawn Nicholas Savage - <a href= "https://seannicholassavage.bandcamp.com/">https://seannicholassavage.bandcamp.com/</a> ---Beverly Glenn-Copeland - <a href= "https://beverlyglenncopeland.com/">https://beverlyglenncopeland.com/</a> ---Music Production Podcast #151: What is Your Listener Doing and 13 Musical Emotions - <a href= "https://brianfunk.com/blog/2020/2/6/what-is-your-listener-doing-and-13-musical-emotions-music-production-podcast-151"> https://brianfunk.com/blog/2020/2/6/what-is-your-listener-doing-and-13-musical-emotions-music-production-podcast-151</a> ---MandoBass Free Ableton Live Pack - <a href= "https://brianfunk.com/blog/2014/9/12/mandobass-free-ableton-live-pack-109"> https://brianfunk.com/blog/2014/9/12/mandobass-free-ableton-live-pack-109</a> ---A Journey Inward by Brian Funk - <a href= "https://brianfunk.com/blog/2020/3/11/my-new-ep-a-journey-inward-is-now-available"> https://brianfunk.com/blog/2020/3/11/my-new-ep-a-journey-inward-is-now-available</a> ---Brian Funk Website - [https://brianfunk.com] (https://brianfunk.com/) ---Intro Music Made with 16-Bit Ableton Live Pack - <a href= "https://brianfunk.com/blog/16-bit">https://brianfunk.com/blog/16-bit</a> ---Ableton Live Pack Archive - <a href= "https://brianfunk.com/blog/ableton-live-pack-archive">https://brianfunk.com/blog/ableton-live-pack-archive</a> ---Music Production Club - [https://brianfunk.com/mpc] (https://brianfunk.com/mpc) ---Music Production Podcast - [https://brianfunk.com/podcast] (https://brianfunk.com/podcast) ---Save 25% on Ableton Live Packs at my store with the code: PODCAST - <a href= "https://brianfunk.com/store">https://brianfunk.com/store</a> Thank you for listening.  Please review the Music Production Podcast on your favorite podcast provider!

#284: Producing the Strokes and Crafting a Sound with Gordon Raphael

Gordon Raphael is a highly sought-after musician and producer. He produced Is This It and Room on Fire by The Strokes and Soviet Kitsch by Regina Spektor, amongst countless others. His new book, The World is Going to Love This, documents his work and the exciting stories from the Seattle scene of the 90s through his work with The Strokes, Regina Spektor, and The Libertines. As the producer for some of my favorite albums of this century, speaking with Gordon was a real treat. He shared studio stories and techniques used with The Strokes. Gordon emphasizes the importance of keeping an open mind to new possibilities and unconventional ways of working to create timeless and emotionally impactful sounds.

#281: Capturing Life in Recordings with Peter Gregson

Peter Gregson is a renowned Composer, Cellist, and Deutsche Grammophon recording artist. His latest album, Patina, combines strings and analog electronic instruments in an effort to capture the humanity and life in each instrument for emotional impact. Peter composes for television, film, and games, including placements in the film Blackbird and HBO's The New Pope. Peter and I spoke about his work as a composer and producer. We focused quite a bit on capturing life in recordings. Peter shared some interesting thoughts about the way microphone placement can bring out the "grit" in the cello, and how he uses techniques like this to give his music a "lived-in" feeling, not unlike a favorite pair of jeans.
