There's an oppressive layer of fog over the park in Ukuleletown this evening. It was a semi-warm day, but, with the approach of dusk, a blanket of chilly fog spread across the city like a cold virus. No hot blooded island music here tonight. Stay home and sing to your computer, sing to your headphones. Record it and listen.
Recording is a terrifying experience to most musicians. It's an arcane science that drips incomprehensible techno-jargon and obsessive sonic attitudes. But it doesn't have to be that way, it can actually be fun...with a little forethought and foreknowledge.
Where do you get it, you may ask? A young lady named Sarit Bruno steps up to the plate and offers...Audio Fanzine. A little bit of everything you need to know to make music. All linked together with astonishing panache. And there's even a ukulele section. Check it out.
edit: I was reminded by a email yesterday that Sarit is female.
Basic research, basic research...
