“Follow the white rabbit.”
Wise advice which I’ve been following for 12-odd years now. And in these years, I’ve been fortunate enough to have spent countless hours in the studio with talented people: classical musicians, rockers, theatre artists, film directors, radio/tv programmers, ad gurus, DJs, folk artists, wildlife photographers, rappers, storytellers- each with his unique perspective of what sound and music should be.
I chase the sounds they hear in their heads. Its a fun rabbit-hole to be in.
I use Avid Protools and Propellerhead Reason to do what I do.
