I've been away for a long time. There's a reason for that. I've been constructing something. I now have my very own room without a view. My studio. My own studio.
For a musician, any kind of musician, this is a dream come true. The problem you're faced with as an audio artist is that you have to be free to experiment with sound. Whatever you instrument is, as an audio artist, if you want to create, you have to make sounds, and that is disturbing to other people. That will limit you liberty to make sounds. A studio, is a room that you construct to give you sound creation freedom. It can serve other purposes, but creation-wise, it is above all a freedom zone.
I have now my very own sound freedom zone. The room is a piece of gear of important than most other equipment I had before.
To have a meaningful output, an artist, any artist, needs two things. Freedom and discipline. My room gives me the means of audio freedom. It's now up to me to take this freedom and use it. Discipline is what I need to transform this freedom into actual artistic creation.
PS: About the title, I'm a fan of Helena Bonham Carter, so it has to come out somewhere. And my studio doesn't have any window. So no view.
