AV on soundcarriers

“I love soundcarriers.
Physical hands-on documents.
I count my life in soundcarriers, my own as well as others’.
They are a diary, they keep a score and order.
They are a culmination of life in music and poetry,
a journal, materializing in groups of songs from period to period.
Great love, care and energy goes into crafting them and bringing them home.
Home to myself and to a select audience around the world.
All my soundcarriers are exclusive limited edition issues,
published by dedicated independents.
I am fortunate and thankful to always have had the right people
and circumstances around to make them happen.”

A quote from Neil Young

A quote from Neil Young, addressing a convention of recording industry folk:

“That’s only one way of making records. A lot of you out here are craftsmen: just beautiful records, and take great care with every note. And I know I’m not one of them. I like to capture the moment. I like to record the moment. I like to get the first time that I sung the song. I like to get the first time the band plays the song. So there’s a lot of compromises you make to get that feeling, but in the long run, that’s where the pictures are when I hear my words and when I see the pictures while I’m listening. So that’s what we try to record.”

Speaking of  ‘Beat the Record’ ; could have said it better myself but he beat me to it…
