Lars Deutsch headshot on black backgoundLA-based producer Lars Deutsch recently released a whimsical album called “Boum Dans L’Espace.” He also created a series of short videos for the project, inspired by his appreciation for early sci-fi and the slightly out-of-tune.

Lars is a two-time Emmy winner whose bio reads like this:

“He went from heavy metal guitarist to singer, to songwriter, to a Masters in classical composition, to international performances of his classical works, to lecturing in composition and audio production to scoring three hundred films/commercials that have collected over one hundred awards.”

Lars’ commercial work has been featured in everything from Toyota ads to Stephen King’s “The Passenger.” You can also hear about his work and working with him in episode 216, featuring singer-songwriter Amiena.

Lars and I discuss his new release and video shorts, collecting sounds, retro sci-fi inspirations, the charm of slightly out of tune, the storytelling effect of weirdness & humor, using socials for fun rather than promotion, thoughts on AI in music, artist development, Dolby Atmos, and the biohacking perspective of thinking less.

Please enjoy my conversation with Lars Deutsch.

I struggle to keep my energy level steady, especially in the afternoon. I love coffee, but try not to drink it after 10:30 in the morning. Consistently creating new podcast episodes, subscriber emails, videos and new music requires a lot of focus. Thank goodness I found Magic Mind! I’ve decided it’s the perfect afternoon fix for my energy/focus needs.

Magic Mind has a short list of high quality ingredients that will intrigue and likely help you. I think Matcha may be the difference maker for me. Matcha is basically nature’s extended-release version of caffeine. I really like the taste of Magic Mind, and I felt good after taking it. I encourage you to check it out, especially if you struggle to stay focused some days.
