Something Tangible to Hang On To

night_neon.jpegSorry no postings for a while, but I just didn’t have anything to write about, and better not waste bytes by meaningless chatter. This weekend I will go through more Ableton cool features, so stay tuned.

Meanwhile, as producers, it’s kind of fun to hang on to something at the end of the product. It used to be a plastic platter, single or LP, then a CD. Now in this modern age of releasing tracks one by one over digital distributions, it’s mostly bits saved on a separate hard disk. Such backups are easier to do than constantly burn CDs, not that I do CD burns and take releases to a location outside this house from time to time.

Anyway, it would be fun to have something tangible as a result from the release, I must confess. I was thinking for a while to burn a CD, and use a bigger sized case, and start lining up the book case here in the studio with entries. It’s kind of fun watching a wall of releases slowly materialize over time. Then, if I ever move, what a drag to pack down lots and lots of things.

If anyone has a good idea how to memorize work, let me know. I’ve also been thinking about the lack of anything physical in this new age of digital releases, and maybe even consumers will again demand something that is tangible, or something else than just a digital file with audio — more about that shortly.
