Q&A With Stephen
- Where are you from?
The Philippines, born and raised. But go I home to Italy now because my family lives there. My step dad's italian.
- What is the best city for music in the world?
Where else.. London!
- When did you first start making music?
When I was sixteen. I wrote a song for this girl I was trying to get together with. It was really cheezy but I got with her ;)
- What is your favourite/most used DAW? Why
So far still Logic Pro, It's the jack of all trades I guess. It does everything ok but not great. Pretty simple interface, decent plugins, and you don't need much 3rd party stuff to get a good product out of it. Typecast was all Logic. But I think Pro Tools is still superior in many ways. Just need to get better at using it.
- Who are your favourite artists and who inspired you the most to pursue your music studies and career?
Ahhh....hate this question because my answer for this changes all the time. What I say now might not be the same next year. Currently I would have to say: Thrice, Bon Iver, QOTSA, Deftones, Paramore, Jimmy Eat World. And when I was younger Incubus and The Foo Fighters were bands that really inspired me.
- How long have you been studying music production? Which courses at LSS did you take?
Almost 2 years now. Well pretty much all of our courses as I did the Music Diploma Certificate.
- Why did you pick LSS?
Good atmosphere to work in with great people and staff. Really involved and knowledgeable tutors. Great industry standard equipment.
- How do you feel your learning at LSS has contributed to your musical development?
It was huge. Before LSS I was mainly just a musician still reliant on the powers that be (i.e other musicians, sound engineers, mixers,) to get a final product out. Now I can do everything on my own. Compose, Produce, Mix. And even with the things I still can't do great, I atleast have the knowledge and connections on where to go.
- What are your plans after LSS?
Same as I'm doing now. Making music, and performing as much as I can.
- What advice would you give prospective students interested in starting studying music or music production?
It's never too late to learn something new. There's always something you still don't know. And you get what you put in.
