New \"Meet the Artist\" Interview Series at GOS Forum: First Guest: Jeremy Soule
We recently started a series of \"Meet the Artist\" interviews. The main purpose of the series is to provide an online venue in which Northern Sound members may interact with prominent film/TV composers, expert GOS users, forward thinkers, and otherwise extraordinary people of interest. This series gives members an opportunity to ask guests questions about composing,arranging, orchestrating, GigaStudio, how to get a certain sound, tips, industry information, etc.
Composer Jeremy Soule was our first guest. Jeremy is an incredibly gifted and talented composer in film,television and interactive productions. Jeremy\'s work has been acclaimed and appreciated by millions of people around the world. He is an avid user of GigaStudio. In fact, he has a couple of dozen computers dedicated to GigaStudio (soon expanding to 48 computers).
Thank you to following members: ninriggs, composer22, Francis Belardino, Simon Ravn, jubal, dwdonehoo, A_Sapp, Damon,PeterRoos, MartinL, PatS, stenoerting, scf3, gungnir, RickD, and KingIdiot. Jeremy really liked your questions and was impressed by the level of professionalism displayed.
My questions to the forum are these: Who would you like to see interviewed in the near future? Is there anyone on the list at http://www.garritan.com/endorsements.html for example, who interests you? Some have already agreed to be interviewed. We are open to all suggestions.

Jerry Gerber is a great advocate of the virtual orchestra and a fan of GOS. I just saw/heard a talk he gave and conversed with him briefly. I am sure he would have many opinions to share.
Ray Colcord would be an interesting interview, and with his off-kilter slant on things, funny as well.
Jeremy Soule said, \"If my trumpet is on the right, I want the sound off the wall on the left to really show itself.\" Wanna know who is the master of the mix and can do this reflective stuff really well? Bill Brown. He is the master of the big Hollywood mix. True, he uses a lot of live musicians, but he also does a lot of virtual orchestra and it all sounds like the same mix, which I know he does himself (he told me so). Maybe he would reveal more in an interview than he would reveal to me. I study his mix technique and sound A LOT, and I almost have it nailed, but I want to learn MORE. His music is outstanding as well. So BB would be my first choice. To see what I mean, go to http://billbrownmusic.8m.com/
I am visiting Chance Thomas and his studio this weekend, and I will ask if he would be open to and interview. His site: http://www.hugesound.com/
