For the past 2 years, i have been learning audio engineering, despite having a long way to go I've managed to learn a lot and put the learning to good use (do you agree?).
Using Ableton Live 8 (which is an amazing software BTW) and a ton of samples and plugins has allowed me to realize the goal of being completely independent, creating an atmosphere where i can collaborate with some of my best musician friends (Nicky, Madalena & Peter) to create music that i think is the best work I've made in my life, self-engineered and self-produced.
All this has taught me the value of these fantastic musicians and awesome friends even more so, i feel we have a much more nourishing environment to work in and produce some great songs to boot.
Thank you guys
