What inspired you to share this track with the Splice community?
When I originally got on Splice, I learned a lot by splicing others’ projects, and so I wanted to do the same for others who may be interested in doing a remix/bootleg.
Tell us about your approach to writing and production. Any favorite sample packs or plugins?
I typically start with a chord progression and tweak it until it sounds awesome. Then I voice it with some instruments, I really like using wide saws I make on Serum. I use Ableton’s Arpeggiator effect way too much for my own good. I listen to some of my favorite producers and see how they add layers of detail and try to emulate that!
You’re primarily a Ableton Live user. What is it about Logic that makes it your DAW of choice?
No real reason, I’m on a Mac and at the time I only knew about Fruity Loops and Ableton, so I went with Ableton.
How has Splice had an impact on your production process or workflow?
Being a front-end software engineer by trade, I really wanted some form of version control when making tracks. I had too many times where I’d tweak a sound late into the night, save, only to wake up the next morning and spend hours trying to get my old sound back. I googled “Ableton version control” and that’s how I found Splice! It’s helped me collaborate with awkward island and bimyo on “Hyperdrive.”
What are your influences at the moment?
You’ve had quite a few users in the community Splice the project file for “Back to Back x Flashing Lights” – what do you hope that they’ll do with it?
Hopefully learn a trick or two! I always learn a lot by seeing how others produce sounds, and I hope people can learn the same from me. It would also be pretty exciting to hear a remix of … a remix!
Where do you think that you music is headed next? Anything that you’ll like to share with us?
I haven’t quite found my sound, so my next few tracks will definitely be experimental/exploratory. I look forward to it!
