Michael Musco, also known as Musco Sound, is an award winning musician from theUnited States. He brings with him an impressive track record of success along with an ever growing library of new music in a wide variety of styles and genres. His creative outlook on production music has lead to his music being placed in television, film, documentary, video games, ads, and everything else in between.

Some Questions We Asked Michael–

–High profile projects or clients you have worked for?

Most of the music I have created I never really know where it ends up or how it’s used. When I do get the chance to work on music for a client it’s very awesome. I’ve worked with an award winning digital signage company, Blue Pony Digital. Also I have created music used by Holiday Inn Express, Sugarshack Animation, Seward Inc, and many more.

–Primary instrument? –Favorite music-making piece of gear or software you currently use?
The instrument that has really gotten me into the music world is the guitar, but I’d say for commercial music my primary instrument is the synthesizer, and I use Fl Studio 11 to produce all the music I create. 

–Piece of gear or software you wish you owned?
I wish I owned Native Instruments Komplete 9, which I soon will purchase as soon as my computer is upgraded.

–Film score or song you admire? Why?
I’ve always liked the music in Jaws. It’s one of those scores that will never be forgotten and even now you hear kids in pools going dhanna dhanna dhanna as they stalk one of their friends.

–Memorable “Aha!” moment during your musical education?
My aha moment was when I realized I was mixing my music to loud. I fell into the loudness war hard and didn’t even really know I was in it until it was to late.

–Most embarrassing music-related moment?
I think the most embarrassing music moment I’ve had was playing guitar on stage and completely forgetting how to play the song.

–If you had a time machine and could record or perform once with any artist, who would it be?
Jimi Hendrix for sure.

–Moment you first knew you would be a musician?
Probably the first time I picked up the guitar and started playing, I knew this is what I wanted to do. I have always loved music and going to see live music. Once I started playing myself it quickly turned not only into a passion but an obsession.

–Advice you would give to a younger family member interested in a music career?
Don’t listen to the negative people out there that will try and give you reasons why not to pursue a career in music. Follow your dreams, stay focused, work hard, and you can do it.

–Five songs or albums you’d take with you to a desert island?
That’s a tough question. I’ve been pretty digital with listening to music. I’d prefer to probably take my computer hard drive more then anything. I’d have to have some music from: Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, The Black Keys, White Stripes, Nirvana, just to name a few. Haha since I was on an island maybe some Jimmy Buffet. 

–If you could master another instrument, what would it be?

–Favorite time of day to work in your studio?
In the mornings.

–Some of your favorite tracks that you would want us to feature in the blog.
