Description: An experienced musician, producer and engineer, Hill Kourkutis wears many hats in the studio (guys, sorry, this is a literal translation: “wears many hats” – Canadians don’t have time to figure out what kind of meme is behind this expression). Kicking off his debut series, the Canadian polymath takes us through the production and mixing of SATE’s JUNO Award-winning song “Howler.”

Hill begins by exploring the song’s inspiration and writing process. She then defines the album’s sonic palette, talking about the specific tones, effects and production techniques that were used to create a cohesive sound. These restrictions allowed the team to formulate a clear aesthetic for the album and helped generate creative momentum in the early stages of work.

Once the production aesthetic is established, Hill dives deeper into the recording process. She shares her approach to capturing warm vintage tones using modern equipment. She also shares her experiences recording artists remotely and talks about her methods for avoiding compromises in the home recording process.

Once the track is complete, Hill moves on to the final mixing process. She demonstrates the techniques she uses to bring together disparate elements, especially if they were recorded in different settings and time periods. Finally, she shares valuable tips on how to maintain perspective when mixing your own work—a challenging but rewarding process for those who dare to undertake it.
