Q&A With Adrian
- Where are you from?
Buenos Aires, Argentina - the Dario Nicolau band performs songs using the native rhythms of Argentina and Latin American, incorporating folklore in modern and simple context.
- What is the best city for music in the world?
Buenos Aires. London too. I love these two music cities!
- When did you first start making music?
Don't even remember, my father is a musician so there was always music in my house, but professionally I started at around 18 years old.
- What is your favourite/most used DAW? Why?
My favourite DAW is Pro Tools. It's easy and fast.
- Who are your favourite artists and who inspired you the most to pursue your music studies and career?
I am a musician and sound engineer so the two vary. As musicians, from Latin America: Astor Piazolla, Cuchi Leguzamón, Bebo Valdez, Horacio Salgán ... many.
As Engineers: Jorge Da Silva (a legend, and the best sound engineer from Argentina) Osvaldo Acedo, Eduardo Bergallo, Andres Mayo and many others.
- How long have you been studying music production? Which courses at LSS did you take?
I have spent 16 years learning and practicing music production. I took the Summer Course in "Mixing and Mastering" at LSS.
- Why did you pick LSS?
For many reasons: for its prestige, because it was an advanced and short course, and because it was in London!
- How do you feel your learning at LSS has contributed to your musical development?
LSS has helped me see new techniques in mixing and mastering, showed me a different way to start a mix, correct common mistakes, and helped me to appreciate what is important in each song.
- What happened after your time at LSS?
Working hard ! Trying to sound even better. Many of my customers appreciate the new techniques applied. I'm really happy with my experience in London.
- What advice would you give prospective students interested in starting studying music or music production?
The sound is not in the machines, or expensive equipment. The sound is in yourself. You just have to learn how. LSS is the place!
