I’m on the way to hear the master of my record, and I’m r e a l l y excited. I haven’t done this part of the process with any of my other ep’s/first album, and it’s a bit nerve wracking. Don’t me wrong, it’s not because I don’t trust the mastering engineer (cohort and audio scientist Steve Major, he’s a genius and his studio will blow your mind, website coming very soon) or am unhappy with the music, it’s just that to me, the fun part of making a record is over and the not fun work begins. Getting art work formatted exactly to the pixel, deciding if anyone even buys cds anymore and is it worth doing, uploading, form filling, mailing, all the business stuff which I’ve never done before. You know, the stuff that actually would allow people to hear my music. The beauty of doing it yourself is that you set all the timelines, and depending on the mastering, I’ll probably release this thing in the next 2 to 3 weeks. It’s so strange how this -
can turn into sounds that can make you feel happy or sad or angry or all of it. Either way, I’ve felt all those things in the past few months and have learned a ton in this process. Still learning.
