Another rant about music, production and business?

Why I finally decided to start another blog about music, production, studio work and music business.

I’ve been asked one too many times, why I don’t start a blog where I write about my production techniques or give tips and write about what’s happening in a composers life. And to be honest I didn’t think there’s so much I can tell, maybe apart from the odd rant about the music business or make lists of favorite plugins, albums, artists… Also I’m (still) not sure if I can teach others anything new. So I was reluctant for a long time.

But recently more people come up to me and ask about production advice or just would like to see how I do certain things in the studio. And I guess sometimes it might really be interesting – just like I want to see how others work or achieve a certain sound or effect (admittedly it’s more interesting to see how Hans Zimmer or any other big name works, but maybe it’s not all boring stuff I will post).

Besides, it might be fun to write about all this, maybe sometimes give a little opinion piece and maybe even be helpful to other composers, songwriters and producers 🙂

So here it is – the start of my blog…

I’m looking forward to see where it will go and get your comments 🙂
