Today saw some inspiration, for the 20th time, on this guy named Zack Hemsey. I can’t find a personal site for him, but he has this great interview on SoundWorks Collection that I often use in classes. It is inspirational yet shows humility and also his passion. The music that he shows in the video is also very interesting, working with full orchestral music (though not live musicians,) and then bringing an “organic” drum sound, all to support rapped vocals.
If you are into audio the SoundWorks website is really an amazing resource. It explores the people and work behind film and video games. For example the interview with Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (NIN) while long, is really interesting. Their process is organic and yet structured.
