Musician’s Survival Guide to a Killer Record

You’re a musician. Like most musicians these days, you write songs. And when you write a song that you’re all excited about, you record it, probably mostly at home, perhaps in some local studios too. You may even invite some friends to participate. Then you probably put your new record on streaming sites, band sites, and social media sites, perhaps all of those, because you feel you absolutely killed it, and the whole world needs to hear this record right now. Some months later, you listen to your record again, only to realize you still adore the song, but the record itself? It fell short, somehow. Just like the last one did. Which brings up a very important question:Are you 100% satisfied with your records?I ask, because I already know that most of you are going to answer no to that. Some of you might even believe it’s not even possible to be 100% satisfied with your records.I’m here to tell you that it is. Who am I? I’m Mixerman aka Eric Sarafin.

For the Love of Music: A Conductor’s Guide to the Art of Listening

With a lifetime of experience, profound knowledge and understanding, and heartwarming appreciation, an internationally celebrated conductor and teacher answers the questions: Why should I listen to classical music? How can I get the most from the listening experience?

A protégé of Leonard Bernstein–his colleague for eighteen years–and an eminent conductor who has toured and recorded all over the world, John Mauceri helps us to reap the joys and pleasures classical music has to offer. Briefly, we learn the way a musical tradition born in ancient Greece, embraced by the Roman Empire, and subsequently nurtured by influences from across the globe, gave shape to the classical music that came to be embraced by cultures from Japan to Bolivia. Then Mauceri examines the music itself, helping us understand what it is we hear when we listen to classical music: how, by a kind of sonic metaphor, it expresses the deepest recesses of human feeling and emotion; how each piece bears the traces of its history; how the concert experience–a unique one each and every time–allows us to discover music anew. Unpretentious, graceful, instructive, this is a book for the aficionado, the novice, and anyone looking to have the love of music fired within them.
