When I Grow Up I Want to be Steven Wilson…

Music production is something that has interested me for many, many years. I am fascinated how to make the bare bones of recorded sound into a commercially acceptable song. One of my preoccupations with my own music is how can I hide my own shortcomings as a player with a sheen of professional quality sound and so making music sound the best it can be has turned into more than just a hobby.

I’ve always wanted to get into music production and when bands say “Can you check out our album” I always tremble because I tend to listen to it with a producers hears rather than a critics, because their production is usually what limits their creative endeavours.

Reading their album description, they were looking for a very live sound, but this did a great disservice to their playing as it rendered many of their songs flat and a little lifeless.

So they gave me the master tracks of the first song from their album “Speicher” and I set to work, making sound more attractive to my ears.
