Last Wednesday the illustration class from Huntington College came to my studio to see what a real live illustrator looks like. Ken Hopper, their professor, says it’s a lot like taking the kids to the zoo to look at the animals. I’m still trying to figure out what kind of comment that was…
While here, Ken noticed my record collection and mentioned he was converting his wifes collection to digital. Since it was raining on Saturday again and I was stuck inside I thought I would do the same thing. I have hundreds of records and thousands of songs I never listen to because they are trapped on vinyl platters.
Many years ago my son Nick came into my studio while I had a record playing on the turntable (he was probably a 6th grader at the time). He walked over to it, stared at it in amazement and let out a long, low “WOAHhhh… you can actually see it spinning… can you play the other side, too?”
The photo above is my studio and that is where I sat all weekend trying to figure out computer music recording.
