We're thrilled to release our first video series with the multiple Grammy-winning artist, songwriter, and producer Finneas O'Connell! This instalment focuses on the creation of 'Therefore I Am', the 2020 single by his superstar sister Billie Eilish. Finneas takes you through how he co-wrote the song, recorded Billie's vocals, produced the record, and prepared the stems for mixing by Rob Kinelski. With the multi-track production session open, he revisits the process of making drum beats, layering percussion, forming bass lines, and creatively mangling samples. He explains his workflow that involves mixing as he produces, trying impulsive vocal harmonies, and creating a rough master for reference. Furthermore, O'Connell shares the details of tracking with Billie, reveals his signal chains, and elaborates on the duo's songwriting approach!
