Notes: Human Control

This page was almost intentionally left blank.

I’m not sharing notes about what gear I used on these recordings, because no such notes exist. Embrace the mystery!

Over the past year I’ve read a few essays and had several thoughts that come down to this: we musicians assign our gear too much credit and ourselves not enough responsibility for our sound. We spend a lot of mental energy picking out exactly which hammer to put in our toolbox, even when we already have a selection of excellent hammers that fit our hands well.

I would like to express my appreciation for the makers of modules, synths and music software; what you do is an art too, and it is well loved. But I’m gonna need some of that headspace back now. šŸ™‚
