YOU! Yes, YOU! I am talking to you, in first person, while downing a cup-a-joe. I am not the exceptionally busy type of person since running this studio. There are times that I wonder if all the gear I own was or IS worth it.
Sometimes I wonder if selling all my gear and getting a REAL job like driving people or things or just doing something other than the studio thing. You know- Like, Wrapping cables, listening to music in the control; which is NOT a job, I know.
Also making videos for clients, mastering, mixing, and recording the folks who come to this fine place I call a home/studio.
The nice thing about running a studio, you get to meet new faces and learn alot about audio and the many facets of it. Yes sometimes clients bale out on something that took you a grueling couple of days, and then they say, they dont like it, and wont pay you a cent.
But then there are the days where the solid clients who KNOW what work actually goes into working in a studio, and running a recording studio- they pay. And then it makes everything seem right.
Right now, I am just sitting in front of my old Windows Vista PC, with yes, I know, I said it- Coffee. And listening to the latest album from James bay- Electric light.
He is a prolific writer, with “Hold back the river” being one of his famous tunes. I guess you could say that is what makes music so interesting. You get to listen to new albums that you never heard of.
For me, since I don
t have any more friends referring me to albums. I listen to the grammys then I choose in my mind which ones I like, then if they come out with an album, I hand over my hard earned cash from performing as a pastor for weddings.
Music is like a drug for me. After work, or during work, or going to work, I listen to my ipod nano. Which is a joy to play with.
s like a toy to me. Growing up with tapes And then CDs, and then MD
s. And now back to CDs.
I guess CD
s wont be disolving. As buying CD`S is still a thing here in Japan.
And I don`t think that will go away.
And of course there are those LP hoarders.
But I know nothing about LP
s. just CDs, MD`s, and tapes. I grew up in the eighties. So During the VHS and tape era, I guess you could say I grew up in a good era.
Anyways, thanks for listening to me babel on about music. It`s in my blood. And if you follow this blog, with all the people that come to record and do whatever they do to make a noise of make history. You are taking the journey with me. Thank you!
I guess this never touched on our history; More like the history of the format of Music formats
Anyways, best wishes for the fall, then winter that will be coming down upon us soon.
Stay warm, stay happy! And don`t forget, Coffee IS cheaper than redbull or monster!
