When it comes to inspiration Garibay has always had one thing on his mind, "lots and lots of visuals" he explains.
"I had plenty on tour, from the look on the fans’ faces to Gaga being moved by an event or a piece of music we created. There was plenty to draw from. I make music as if I were making or scoring the soundtrack to my life, but in this score she is the star of the movie – this is her film. As far as sonics and sounds: no rules – soft synths, whatever was available to us in whatever part of the world we were in.
"We made sure to stay on the cutting edge of software technology by working closely with companies like Native Instruments, Camel Audio, ILIO, MOTU, Ableton, and East West. We experimented a lot and tried to stay away from patches and presets… We went from working with straight vintage analogue outboard and synthesizers in France and Milan to extreme and random plug-ins. I remember whenever I had a second on the road I would be on different synth and mix blogs looking for any plug-in I could get my hands on.”
