This is how 3 referees rated Fabien:
Hi, my name if Fabien. I'm French and live in West London since 93'. I'm self taught. I came here with a group signed to Talking Loud. (Young Disciples-Galliano… ) I then got involved in production and programming and worked with Nellee Hooper for 5 years. I've had sessions with artists such as No Doubt, U2, Martina Topley Bird, Bjork, Mika, Massive attack, Will young, Madonna, Placebo, Katy Perry and many more… You can check some of the work I've done on the discog website. Lately I got more involved in songwriting and got signed to Cathy Dennis.(2008-2011) We are no longer working together but it was a fantastic experience, traveling extensively to LA writing with top writers such as Lindy Robins, Jimmy Harry and Shelly Peiken… Last year I've worked a lot with an Artist called Jagga and Nimmo and the Gauntletts.
I've been teaching production to Jason Ong who's now running the music department for Only Connect. I also mentor my son who has now a great sense of arrangement and knows how to put quality sounds and beats together. He's 14 and will release an EP this year. I'm also teaching songwriting to a young 13 year old singer and pianist.Chord progression, structure and top line. (Melody) I help her with piano and she told me that she was really happy with me compared to the last teacher she had. She felt like she was finally learning something. I haven't got a massive amount of experience in teaching but always get results.
First of all, I'm interested in the person. I want to know what makes them tick and of course the music they love. Where do they see themselves in a year from now. I want them to understand music with their senses before anything else. To produce is really about listening and create a sonic that makes you feel good and eventually understand and be really open with other artists you will wok with. I enjoy writing music with different program such as Logic, Ableton and Pro Tools. When I come to really think of it, my approach is really to make sure that the people I will teach will have their own approach and be single minded and develop this uniqueness we all crave for. I intend with each person to put a program that will suit them best. I'm willing to travel only if the person has the necessary equipment.
