The Art of Modern Music Production-How To?
      #1023529 - 10/12/12 07:27 PM
There are so many places I have seen to learn how to make music. I have went to schools, signed up for workshops & seminars, and checked out all those free Youtube quick tips only to feel more dizzy then when I first began. As an international DJ and touring as much as I do its harder & harder these days to get in the studio for an extended period of time to continue making the music that is needed to stay on the road and tour. If you don't put out music and good music, then the touring begins to diminish. Some years ago, I was speaking to a friend & engineer/recording artist and shared this cool idea about how great it would have been back in the day and even today to be able to watch & learn how your favorite artist produced a record from start to finish. Not a tip or trick but an entire record from start to finish. As a DJ I was inspired by my other favorite DJ's. I learned, watched & studied everything they did and I strongly feel there isn't a profession out there that doesn't have or require someone to inspire another. I loved the music of Mark Farina, I love how Bad Boy Bill would entertain, I love the marathon sets of Danny Tenaglia, so I honed all my DJ skills from watching them. There isn't a doctor, athlete, poet, recording artist or sales associate that doesn't have someone that has inspired them to do what they do so why in world of music production should there not be the same? There is, but there was never the outlet for you to sit & watch your favorite producer make a record from start to finish with you riding shotgun. A course that provides you with all the files and parts that the pro is using so you can assemble and create the same project the pro is making. A HD video from start to finish that leaves NOTHING out. I began to assemble what is now I feel the solution at web page. I would love to hear the rest of the audiences feel about this subject. We aren't looking to earn millions or and reinvent the wheel here, the sole purpose is to give people an outlet where they can stay & remain in the CREATIVE and not be slave to their hardware or software or wonder how the Pro's are the Pro's, etc. Do we think our community will ever be the next Jimmy Jam or Terry Lewis? Who knows, but damn, it would be great to know they did it because they had a great platform to learn from right?
