RSR316 – Damian Taylor – Collaborating with Bjork and Arcade Fire

Do you want your vocals production to sound like Who Framed Roger Rabbit or Pan's Labyrinth? Damian talked about collaborating with Bjork and Arcade Fire, programming for MAX and Ableton Live, and micro editing in Pro Tools for drum and bass.

My guest today is Damian Taylor a six-time Grammy-nominated record producer, music mixer and programmer, songwriter, song doctor, sonic architect and explorer best known for his work with Bjork (in the studio and on stage), The Prodigy, The Killers, Arcade Fire, UNKLE, TR/ST, Odette, The Temper Trap, City of the Sun, and Dizzy to name a few.

Damian describes his love for creating music and art at the intersection of ideas and expression, performance and design; juxtaposing not only organic and synthetic methods of creation and manipulation but also cultural and stylistic concepts and perspectives.

He is also the founder of The Complete Producer Network, an active hub for people all over the world who are dedicated to improving their ability to create and share extraordinary music. It’s an open, inclusive, and supportive community of music creators who come together to share ideas, insights, tips, tricks, strategies and perspectives to drive themselves and others forward.

Damian also live streams over on Twitch sharing his studio experience and is active on social media writing essays on Twitter and Instagram.
