Once upon a time I set out to record some Drum Loops. Today I Revisited the concept.
This time around I sought help I mean, lets be honest here, It'd be better to leave the drumming to the drummers.
The Goal going in was to Sample the entire Drum kit. Bring your choice pieces, mic it, warm up. Record each drum in every possible way.
So we Warmed up, finished sampling the kit into this session here. Luckily, the setup was quick and efficient. Tracking went smoothly. we captured each Sample and then about a half-dozen loops.
Next up is getting the loops Mixed, I won't get too deep into the weeds on the technical side. Light EQ mostly. Some Minor Edits. Later, the samples will be Exported as individual files and arranged by velocity.
What do you think when you hear about the creative cafe?
I know we're not all marketers, but there's something to be said for presenting something thats cohesive. I see the whole event/community here as an exploration of creative lifestyle. a mini creative lifestyle blogosphere if you will, only each month we host an event. On the presentation side, I'm less concerned about 'branding' and care more about 'culture'. I see it almost like a 'brand of me' kind of thing, except instead of it being 'me' its instead a group of like minded people, together, accomplishing something very cool.

content what is it?
Content is the stuff we post about in relation to the event.
what is content used for?
Content is used to connect with our audience and each other, to attract people in and build relationships so that people can get to know us and what we're all about here...
So here's the challenge...
Come up with 3 categories into which you can plan your content.
for example, these are my 3 main areas of focus when it comes to creating content for Gene Media:
1- Music Mindsets
3- recording + production
After you've got three niche areas, start thinking of some subcategories within that, these might mean individual post topics, pictures, or videos.
1- Music Mindsets
Capturing ideas on the fly... hope you have a pen and paper
Remember that great idea you had while you were out on the town? Neither did I until I started carrying around a notebook for scratching down ideas.
Start collecting and stockpiling these ideas and before you know it, you'll have a deep pool of resources to draw from next time you sit down to focus on creating some new content, and the beauty part is, you'll never have to worry about running out of ideas again...
Our August Event. We had some fantastic performances from our friends at the creative studio. Hosted online via Facebook.
Huge Thanks to everyone who decided to Collaborate with us to make the event a fantastic experience
What's the Point?
To me, there is no single quick fix, no magic silver bullet to get you from where you are to where you want to go. I can't promise that this is your one-way ticket to instant fame and fortune. Success is driven by the desire and a willingness to never give up. while seeking challenges as opportunities and striving to overcome them.
I believe that a group of committed individuals working together can aim higher and achieve more. That's why I'm doing this...
