Some Questions We Asked Bobby–

–High profile projects or clients you have worked for?

I have currently finished working on a project for a company called They produce great 80s style slasher films, so it was a wonderful project to be involved with. I’ve also done a lot of work with Media Juice studios, working on trailers for such companies as DC Comics, Fast and Furious, and much more.

–Primary instrument?

It’s a tricky one, but probably keyboards now. It has changed over the last 20 years, and I have really focused on ‘band’ instruments, and play drums, guitar, bass and keys.

–Favorite music-making piece of gear or software you currently use?

It’s got to be Cubase. I just know my way around it so quickly now, and try to stay up to date with each new product they release.

–Piece of gear or software you wish you owned?

My heart would say an original 1965 Hammond B3 Organ with matching Leslie, but then my brain would say something like Heavyocity Damage, or the evolve series. Those products sound amazing.

–Film score or song you admire? Why?

I love Hans Zimmer’s work on Inception. You can hear some of the elements from the 28 Days Later sound track, but on the whole it is a great score, and really captures the theme of the film.

–Music education background?

I’ve studied music and music technology all through school. I moved to London when I was 18 and studied Music Technology at the London College of Music and Media.

–Memorable “Aha!” moment during your musical education?

Probably when I realised how to use weird and wonderful chords in my playing like diminished 7ths and flatted 9ths. Really opened up my playing and composing.

–Most embarrassing music-related moment?

Hmm, that’s a tricky one! I did a gig once where there was a problem with sharing the previous bands drum kit. They took the cymbals and hi hats, so our drummer had to use a small metal bin as his hi hat!!!!

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

That’s a brilliant question. So many too choose from! I think it would have to be something like Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody…. That would be a fun one! Or something like Fleetwood Mac Rumours.

–Moment you first knew you would be a musician?

Probably when I was about 14 and realised that I wasn’t good at anything else, so I decided to make my ‘fun hobby’ into a professional money making career.

–Advice you would give to a younger family member interested in a music career?

Diversify. Try and do a few things rather than focus on one thing. I compose, perform, teach, produce, etc. It gives me different income sources so that I am not putting all my eggs in one basket.

–Five songs or albums you’d take with you to a desert island?

Fleetwood Mac– Rumours

Counting Crows– August and Everything After

Beach Boys– Pet Sounds

Earth Wind and Fire– I Am

Greenday– Dookie

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

Saxophone, definitely!

–Favorite time of day to work in your studio?

9am with a cup of tea.

Fifties Rock and Roll Johnny Be Bad

Evil Deadly Resident

Dark Skies of Doom
