Acoustic Treatment, Part 2
"(Kind of re-stating and amplifying what John started)
Each time you listen on different equipment, chances are you are also changing the listening environment. And the listening environment is arguably more important than the…"
reposted from My Musical JourneyIncreasingly, musicians seem to be using video hosting sites as places to show their wares; almost like "video, or it didn't happen". If you're like me, you don't have a video bone in your body and you wonder if there's a way to follow the herd... One day, I was blissing out, staring at the iTunes visualizer when it hit me that I could be a cheap bastard and simply record that playing one of…See More
"Writing isn't quite the same as composing music, but where all 'art' is similar, I believe, is the impetus that makes one create. Sometimes, I won't pick up a pen or get on the keyboard unless I feel really inspired to do…"
"Blame the booze, but one last, final, last comment: think of how many Now Very Famous Painters painted over their canvases? More common than not. Try. It's OK to fail. Fail well, learn from it, and try again. Just keep getting up every time,…"
"One last thought... both of us got stuck on things "not being done." Then we learned the Zen practice of "good enough." Not perfect, since perfection is unachievable and will never happen in one lifetime, but "good…"
"Speaking of silencing a room...
One thing we can share is a technique that serves us well.
When we think we have a piece or a CD done, we put it on, balanced, loud, and listen to it from the furthest room possible.
Try it. You might be surprised at…"
"I'm glad I didn't offend... It's funny how as an adult, we can maintain attitudes and opinions that were formed in us as a child, and it's not until we're confronted by the situation again as an adult are we: 1.) Aware that…"
"Awesome story. I particularly like the silencing a room with honesty part.
But to your point, yeah, bang on. As a boy, I was unable to make those distinctions. I just saw the external. Unfinished. As an adult, I am…"
"Totally understandable, Georg...and very honest of you. If can offer an alternate thought...
Perhaps this is your chance to re-define what "unfinished" means TO YOU and to know that some timelines, seeming longer, appear to have unfinished…"
Growing up I saw all around me, unfinished projects. Usually, Dad projects. Sometimes other Dad projects. As a kid, I wanted these projects to be done (so that I could reap whatever benefit). These kind of…"
"Wethings Mr. Brand got it down, at least one approach to a "process".
We dump everything, run with the ball, take things too far; musick or writing or anything.
Then trim back, cutting back to the bone, like sculpting.
Then we try to get…"
I just read a few entries on your blog - and enjoyed your writing style and of course, what you're talking about. Yes - wonderful thing for you to repost here.
A quick copy/paste works nicely - even brings pictures and widgets and things with it if you're in visual edit. That's how I do the "member of the day" posts so quickly.
You could either repost the whole post (which would be great!) - or if you prefer to drive people to your original - post like half of it here in a blog - and then a link to the rest on your site. Up to you.
I truly think many people would enjoy reading your posts - so go for it!
