Technique vs. Message

“If we admire the music of a certain composer and having studied his style very thoroughly we draw up rules of musical composition based on this composer we then go to send our children to music school to learn these rules in the hope that if they apply them they will become first class musicians […]

Bending and unbending

When we agreed upon a plan to record and mix an entire record in 24 hours under camera, there were many forces and agendas that came together.  While an ambitious and enthusiastic producer and cameraman wanted to get his rough pilot in front of some west coasters for a shot at getting a reality TV […]
