What is Artistry In Sound?
It can be the pure sound of an immaculately-recorded pristine acoustic guitar, or a ratty one with a hole in it recorded with a radio shack mic. It can be the product of months of work, or of an instantaneous accident. It can be the willingness to junk a great idea for a better one. At the end of the day, it’s about making beautiful things in a beautiful space with beautiful tools – you know it when you hear it.
“Good music comes out of playing together, knowing what they want to do and going for it. You have to sweat over it and bug it to death”Keith Richards
“You can’t copy anybody and end with anything. No two people on earth are alike, and it’s got to be that way in music or it isn’t music.”Billie Holiday
"On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio.”Hunter S. Thompson
"The best music, you can seek some shelter in it momentarily, but it's essentially there to provide you something to face the world with."Bruce Springsteen
