“The difference of 16 bars in one version of a song versus another is about 4/10th’s. That is a much smaller percentage than you will find with the amount of time that it takes you to finish a song.”
How does the number of bars matter?
“16 bars of a song are very different to 15, 8, four, four. In a song, there are three major parts of a song – chorus, verse and verse chorus.”
Is the number of bars a good estimate of an artist’s influence?
“Not a very good one. It is a bit like looking at an engineer with four channels of tape at a show and you have to assume that the four channels are all equal because each channel represents the effect that each sound has on a song. It’s not the same as saying a recording engineer is a better musician than the person they are working with. The more complex sound on the recording has more impact to the song and vice versa. That’s why I like to take it slow. I like to be careful about how much I listen to an artist or song before I really have a good sense of how great they were.”
How do you make the calculations?
“We do a lot of calculations at the end of the song when we decide which one will be played. It’s also important to us. You’re never 100% certain what an artist is going to deliver. What is going to come out of their mouth is what’s going to make them shine. There’s a lot more of a possibility that the song will be better the next time they play it.”
How do you rate the work of a songwriter or musician?
“You have to evaluate whether an artist has enough time and is being creative enough as well as understanding what they’re trying to do in their songs. But if they do that, more power to them. They deserve it a lot.”
I ask, does a singer/songwriter have to be a singer?
“Yes, they really can be a songwriter (with different instruments). A lot of times I like musicians who can play piano. There’s a possibility that the more complex or layered a song is going to be, the less the vocalist’s voice (or guitar) is going to have much of a role.”
What does it take to make it as a musician?
“I would rather work in a creative environment to find out what that
