Tapes, like vinyl, are analog, which means while you might not get that crackling sound you love so much about old vintage vinyls, you will get a uniquely analog sound that strikes up the warm and fuzzies. Plus, it actually will sound better than what you get from the compressed quality of streaming, so if you or your fans are audio heads in any way (or if you just value sound quality) this makes it a really good option.

We look at Ligeti’s famous composition in order to decide how much, or how little, the use of music’s foundational parameters really matter in composing.

“[This] might sound a bit subjective, but the most valuable thing I learned was how to be more sensible about the emotion that every type of chord can produce, and not only a single chord, but in the context of a chord progression by how each chord note moves to the next.”

Avoid this by following the 3:1 rule, which stipulates that the distance between multiple mics should be at least three times the distance between the close mic and the source. For example, if you have a close mic 8″ from the sound hole of your acoustic guitar, your ambient mic should be at least 24″ away from the other mic, or the same sound source. The big change in amplitude between the two signals will mitigate the comb filtering, and you can accentuate this by angling the mics in different directions (provided it sounds good).

In this scenario, it could be a push to get more people from their town to follow you on socials in order to get you back there sooner, or promising a free piece of merch or guest list spot in return for getting more people to follow you on socials.

To once again refer back to Mr. Bowie, here’s an interesting fact. Surprisingly, young Bowie wasn’t considered an exceptional singer by his teachers. “David Bowie’s teachers called his idiosyncratic style “vividly artistic,” but only rated his voice as “adequate.” As voice coach Lisa Popeil writes, “though vocally agile as an adult, Bowie was never known for great pitch accuracy.”

Mahea Lee is a classically trained pianist and composer who has a degree from a jazz school and leads an electro-pop band.

For more Mahea, check out Soundlfly’s course, The Improviser’s Toolkit.
