Eduard Kort – Music Producer, Digital Guru, and Community Leader.

Eduard Kort – Music Producer, Digital Guru, and Community Leader.

It’s not often you find strangers online that turn out to be very sticky and good friends.

Today, I want to introduce you to a digital friend of mine, Eduard Kort, and it’s likely you’ve heard some of his music…

Today, he manages around 10k followers, which he generated with a very smart system, and a smart branding strategy.

 

Eduard Kort is a European Music Producer, who does Mixing, and mastering…

Eduard Kort, take the time to get to know him, join his facebook group.. Seriously, it’s like an experience you will never have in any other facebook group.

People are nice, helpful, and we are very productive.

Eduard runs a community out of Facebook, helps people on a weekly basis, and outputs free files to his community.

He was a big fan of www.musicblip.com – back before it was a viable resource for musicians. Gave me a ton of valuable feedback and deserves a ton of kudos for being an independent musician in 2018.

Eduard Kort and I shared many digital solutions together, he’s a badass at instagram, and I’m honored to introduce you to my mate, Eduard!

Who’s being interviewed?

Answer: Hi, I’m Eduard Kort. I’m a producer/mixing dude from Berlin.

I provide music services online.

I’m also THE funk guy. Really.

What’s your artist name? What do you go by?

Answer: I used to go by SNYCE (because it sounds nice), but went with my actual name instead, just because:

How did you come by your artist name? Why is it important to you?

Answer: It’s just easier to brand everything to my actual name. People will associate everything I put out with me and not with a separate entity. Be it any service I provide, original music I release or some product like a sample pack or presets.

Tyler response: Could not agree with you more. I spent a lot of time stressing about an artist name growing up and I’m not entirely sure if I care to keep it.

Name your top two favorite bands/artist.

Answer:

1. French Electro Duo Justice – impeccable songwriting combined with sound design that inspired a whole new generation of producers.

People still can’t nail their sound from 2007.

Here’s a clue: The “Justice distortion” everyone is trying to emulate is just a bass guitar going through the distortion unit of the DSI Poly Evolver.

Too bad that thing cost like $4K.

2. Johann Sebastian Bach. Godfather of all modern music (yes, Jazz too!) I hate playing Bach though. You have to be very exact and in time, just because that’s the nature of the music, but there’s no denying that he laid the foundation for all modern music with the “well tempered clavier”.

Who was your first big inspiration in the music industry?

Answer: I’ll tell you what motivated me to do music first: I had one defining moment in my life where I can clearly divide between before/after.

I was born in the former Kazakhstan, a former state of the Soviet Union.

Until I was 8 I never seen a piano and my life.

Then I’ve seen a girl play the Dog’s Waltz by Chopin at a school recital.

A post shared by EDUARD KORT (@eduardkort) on

This rather simple piece moved me on a much deeper level than anything I’ve encountered in my life.

I was struck by the fierceness of this little girl extracting magic out of the piano.

From that point onward, I wanted to do the same.

Later, when I moved to Germany, I discovered Ryan Leslie on Youtube.

I think it was in early 2004.

He used to put out “in the studio” videos of his work and man, what can I say.

I’m speaking for a LOT of people here when I say this dude inspired a lot of people to become music producers.

Even now, 14 years, l still go back to those vids to reminisce.

If you could work with any artist, producer, musician, etc… Who would it be and why?

Answer: I’d love to work with Bruno Mars, he’s the MJ of our generation (IMO). Always swims against the current and succeeds at it.

Thanks for joining us on our first interview.

More to come.

A new post on a new domain.

Hello readers, yay a blog post. A new post on a new domain.

Welcome to TylerGarrett.com and thanks for reading my first new post on a new domain. TylerGarrett.com is a free resource and a personal blog founded by Tyler.

A new post usually consists of a little context about what you want your blog to be about.

I believe a few topics will suffice.

  1. Technology Demos and walkthroughs.
  2. Growth Hacks and safe SEO tips.
  3. Photography and free stock images.
  4. Music, Mixes, Remixes, etc.
  5. Using data and data visualization to discuss topics.
  6. Guest blogs.
  7. Interviews.

New posts and new domains moving forward…

My new posts will be about tech, photos, music, growth hacks, and data related to these topics.

Guest blogs will be a place where I will beg some genius to say a few words on a topic or two.

An interview will be a similar case. I’m going to bug people I meet while traveling to answer a few questions on the fly or hopefully people will use the website to sign up for interviews and I will stop bugging strangers.

What’s your next new post going to be? [Nerd Alert]

I’ve been quietly journaling offline for the past few months, mostly technology related, as I’m learning Alteryx’s platform, and boy I’m excited about the future posts too.

Just last week I learned how to use APIs without programming and it wasn’t complex.

So hopefully I will be writing about API usage, a user-friendly guide to using APIs, and sharing the data I’m able to grab.

Next post ideas, I need an idea!

Getting idea’s for posts can come in a lot of fashions, like writing about a hotel you stayed in, taking photos, and giving it a rating.

Another idea is using an automated system to give you ideas.

Have you heard of content or idea generators?

You give it an idea. I used weird stuff as my idea.

  • How
  • Weird Stuff
  • Made Me
  • a Better Person

I bet you could write a story that fits the title.
