Last autumn zaSLON quickly amped up his game and won 5 productions and challenges in just a few months. We at Audiodraft couldn’t miss his sudden jump to success (though we know there really aren’t any shortcuts to success, but long miles behind every pro!) so we wanted to hear from zaSLON himself about his learning curve and ambitions. First, could you tell us something about your background. Where are you from? How did you start creating music? I am from a small town named Krasnohorivka in the Donetsk region of Ukraine. At the moment I live in Kharkiv. In my childhood I […] Read more »

Co-producers – What’s that, and how can I become one?

As a music producer, there’s another way to take part in productions besides creating audio: by becoming a co-producer! Being a co-producer can be useful in many ways: you get your share of the project royalties while learning about professional creative productions from a client’s perspective. As you start understanding the customer point of view by listening to other composers’ work in a more focused way, you’ll become a better music producer yourself. We emailed two of our most prominent co-producers–WheelieR and NVSound–to learn from their perspective what it means to co-produce on Audiodraft Agency Studios. The other side of […] Read more »

Sound Designer Spotlight: Luca Tomassini (Jontom)

Hey Jontom! Thanks for this interview with us. First of all, you are known as Ukulele Master. How did this happen, when did you start playing Ukulele to become a master of it? I started to play the uke about 6 or 7 years ago… Honestly, I can’t exactly remember! I guess I took a different approach to the instrument because unlike many others fascinated by the easiness and portability, I was charmed by the challenge behind four strings and two octaves. After having watched Jake Shimabukuro performing his rendition of “While my guitar gently weeps” I felt the magic behind this instrument and so, that’s how […] Read more »

Sound Designer Spotlight: Christophe Espern

Can you tell us a little bit about your background. Where are you from and how did you end up creating music? I live in Brittany in France. I studied audiovisual production, film, design and advertising. At the same time I started to learn music on a computer by myself. I started writing songs and playing guitar, and soon I started a pop rock band in which I was the singer and songwriter. Little by little I’ve learned and started composing music for student film projects and short films. I began to realize what kind of sounds work in motion pictures. What kind […] Read more »
