Scott Hawksworth (founder of AudioSkills.com) invited TSAS to be part of a Music Production article. This article covers the best tips from many experienced artists! It was published on September 6th, as a web guide for audiophiles of all skill levels.
This article focus on many aspects of music production, being divided into three sections: Strategy, Techniques and Bonus (inc. best plugins and career advice, etc). Here’s a sample on Music Arrangement subsection:
Organization is everything. Music is made of sequences, and each sequence can usually be divided into smaller ones. The repetition of these sequences allows us to almost guess what’s coming next in a piece of music and sometimes it makes you dance. Organize these sequences and build them in a way that it stands out from other productions. You’ll find that there are certain areas, between two major sequences/parts, where you can improvise instead of doing something traditional. Play with breaks and rhythm, without compromising the flow or vibe of your song. — The Strange Algorithm Series, TSASProject.com
