Mathematics of Music
Playing music is easy enough, when you have the knack for an instrument. Of course it demands years of practice and dedication to the cause of making music, still making music itself comes easy enough after a time. Recording music however is a different ball game entirely. Imagine a sound that appeals to you perfectly. Now imagine trying to play it again and again and again in your head. How long can you imagine it with the same clarity? Not for too long Id bet.
Thus did man invent recording. But recording itself is no fool proof process. Because depending on where you record something, depending on what you are recording something on, depending on who is handling the recording equipment while you are busy playing your music…your sound can change from heaven to earth and back. If the sound itself has changed, if the sound is no longer the sound that appealed to you so much when you thought of recording it then the recording is useless. For it is not the sound you wish to hear. Not the sound that was just right.
So what do we do?
We go back to the drawing board, figure out where things went wrong and start the process again. It’s easy enough really, just like mathematics is.
