Steve Fry's insight:

Shows how different people feel about physical vs digital media. Some don't mind a digital version. While others prefer it only done in a physical way.

I grew up listening to ZAO and love the way they albums are recorded because it sounds so organic. I can defiantly say they sound live just as they do recorded.

I like both analog and digital

ZAO was my first introduction to anything heavier than what was on the radio. Also, the first band i mimicked vocals to. Wish I could have seen them live, man.

Wilco to Perform All Fan-Request Set @ Solid Sound Festival, 6/21

Wilco to Perform All Fan-Request Set @ Solid Sound Festival, 6/21 | sound mixing | Scoop.it

Wilco, who began and performs at the Solid Sound music festival, will be doing an all request set list. They will take the time to learn 50 songs, and then select 20 live during their set to perform.

Steve Fry's insight:

I don't know who Wilco is, but doing an all fan request set is pretty awesome. I've personally never heard of an artist doing something like this. Getting people fired up for the show is half the experience of a live event. And this would maximize people being pumped up to see the set list come alive on stage.

MIXING LINKIN PARK LIVE - With Ken ''Pooch'' Van Druten

Linkin Park's sound engineer, Ken Van Druten, walks through a day in the life of his job.

Steve Fry's insight:

Linkin Park's sound engineer does a phenominal job at doing their live shows. The band has grown into more members, which means more instruments that have to be mixed in, and Ken makes it seem simple. Giving the back stage look at how the show comes together gives people a glimpse at how hard people behind the scenes have to work to make the concert experience a success.

Wu-Tang Clan member Cappadonna says 'recording has begun' on new album - NME.com

Wu-Tang Clan member Cappadonna says 'recording has begun' on new album - NME.com | sound mixing | Scoop.it

According to NME.com
Wu-Tang Clan member Cappadonna says 'recording has begun' on a new album.
He went on to add: "A lot of tracks are already lined up...recordings taking place in LA, NYC, and the Wu mansion"

Steve Fry's insight:

Anytime Wu-Tang Clan is bringing out a new album it's good news. It also sounds like the group wants to focus more on postive vibes, and giving information to people. People will always love great lyrics that tell the truth, and expose flaws in themselves, and society.
