THE JOURNEY OF TONE IN THE DIGITAL AGE

WHAT CONSTITUTES GOOD TONE? IS IT A CERTAIN WARMTH IN A PIANO NOTE? IS IT A REFINED AMP THAT SENDS OUT CLEAR DEFINITION TO AN EXPENSIVE MICROPHONE? IN THIS DIGITAL AGE MORE AND MORE OF US ARE USING DIGITIAL DAWS TO RECREATE THE TONES THAT ARE ALREADY IN FRONT OF US. WE CHOOSE TO USE A KOMPLETE PACKAGE OR PLUG OUR BASSES STRAIGHT INTO A COMPUTER INSTEAD OF EXPLORE THE TONAL RANGE AND FIND OUR OWN UNIQUE SOUND.  I THINK FOR MANY ARTISTS OUT THERE WE TRY TO EMULATE INSTEAD OF INNOVATE. WE SPEND OUR TIME TRYING TO SOUND LIKE THAT ARTIST, OR THAT ALBUM INSTEAD OF SEEKING OUR OWN IDENTIFYING SOUND SIGNATURE. RECENTLY I WENT INTO A MUSIC STORE. MY BUD AND I JUST PLAYED AROUND WITH CRASHES HITTING THEM WITH VARYING STICKS AND MALLOTS. HEARING THE DARKER AND VIBRANT TONES OF EACH CRASH WAS REFRESHING. IT REMINDED ME WHAT SOUND DISCOVERY WAS LIKE BEFORE COMPUTERS, HEARING A SYMPHONY OF TEXTURES PLAYING IN REAL TIME. ITS GENUINE, ITS VISCERAL, AND ITS PURE SOUND. I THINK A LOT OF ARTISTS IN THE DIGITAL AGE GET TRAPPED IN THE "DIGITAL". MAKING MUSIC STRAIGHT FROM DIGITAL PACKAGES INSTEAD OF GOING OUT AND FINDING THAT ANALOG SOUND TO RECORD. ULTIMATELY ALL OF OUR MUSIC GETS TURNED INTO DATA AND BIT DEPTH, BUT ARE WE AS ARTISTS LOSING OUT ON THE MUSICAL JOURNEY WHEN WE JUST USE DIGITAL EMULATION? JUST SOMETHING I WANTED TO CHALLENGE YOU ALL WITH AS WELL AS MYSELF. STOP EMULATING SOUNDS AND START BUILDING YOUR OWN SOUNDS FROM THE WORLD AROUND YOU. ITS EASY TO PULL UP A DIGITAL SOLUTION ITS HARD TO FIND A SOUND OF YOUR OWN AND RECORD IT WITH A MIC. YEAH IT MIGHT SOUND CLOSE TO THE DIGITAL SOLUTION IN MANY WAYS SCARY CLOSE. STILL THE PURSUIT OF REAL SOUND IS SO IMPORTANT. I HOPE FOR MYSELF I CAN START TO EMBRACE THAT MORE AND MORE IN THE COMING DAYS. THANKS FOR READING AND FOLLOWING OUR JOURNEY.

ICELAND ADVENTURES

ICELAND IS BEAUTIFUL AND A PLACE WITH SO MUCH CONTRAST AND BEAUTY. EVERYDAY I WAS THERE IT WAS A VISUAL FEAST. THE GEYSERS, THE VOLCANOS, THE GLACIERS, SNORKELING BETWEEN THE NORTH AMERICAN AND EUROPEAN TECTONIC PLATES. IT WAS A SIGHT TO BEHOLD AND I STRONGLY SUGGEST YOU PUT THIS PLACE ON YOUR BUCKET LIST. THIS COUNTRY CONTAINS SO MUCH BEAUTY AND THE CULTURE IS WARM AND VERY FRIENDLY. WE STAYED WITH A FAMILY IN ICELAND THAT SHARED WITH US WHAT IT’S LIKE TO LIVE THERE. THEY GAVE US A TRADITIONAL DRINK CALLED BRENNIVÍN WITH PICKLED SHARK. EATING THE PICKLED SHARK WAS LIKE HAVING AN EXPLOSION OF OCEAN IN YOUR SINUSES. IT WAS AN EXPERIENCE THAT ONLY ICELAND COULD GIVE. ALSO, THE HOTDOGS ARE FLIPPING AMAZING AND CHEAP. WE ALSO COMPLETED SOME FILMING WITH THE MAVIC PRO TOO FROM DJI IN ICELAND. OVERALL THE JOURNEY GAVE ME PERSPECTIVE ON HOW SO MANY GREAT MUSICAL ARTISTS COULD COME FROM THIS PLACE. THERE IS SO MUCH VISUAL INSPIRATION IN THIS PLACE AND IDEAS FOR SONGS AND MUSIC WERE RUSHING IN MY HEAD WITH EVERY NEW PLACE I WOULD SEE. IF YOU ARE IN A CREATIVE LULL AND NEED A PLACE TO INSPIRE YOU TRAVEL TO ICELAND AND EXPERIENCE THIS PLACE FOR YOURSELF. I PROMISE YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.

DJI MAVIC PRO IS INCREDIBLE

YES, WE HAVE FINALLY INVESTED IN A DJI MAVIC PRO. WE HAVE COMPLETED SOME FILMING IN ICELAND AND WILL CONTINUE TO FILM SOME AREAS OF BRITISH COLUMBIA AS WELL. FOR ALL THOSE OUT THERE WONDERING WHAT SETTINGS WE SHOOT WITH. WE USE CINELIKE, -2 SHARPNESS, AND -3 CONTRAST. HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU USE THE TRIPOD MODE TOO.
