Within the modern age of music production, you may well find yourself sitting alone for long periods, hunched over the computer trying to find the perfect sounds to fit your mix.
Working alone has undoubtedly brought about some world class music, people with a single minded devotion to create something beautiful can bring to life a track that can change the game. But, more often than not, working alone brings more problems than perks, you become trapped in the same routines of song writing and production, you have no one telling you that that was the killer take, you have no reference outside of your own ears.
This is where the beauty of collaboration comes in, working with others that you trust brings a chemistry to studio time that is unbeatable in almost all aspects of music. Having someone to battle down the imposter syndrome, having a second set of ears to reference the mix, having someone to encourage you and guide you when you’re about to throw in the towel on what you thought was 9th symphony.
