The hard drive paradox


hard drive

I was supposed this week to develop one of my ideas about recording but I had a pretty upsetting end of the week which didn’t allow me to get to the bottom of the topic. But on the other hand, in the spirit of these two posts about positive attitude and embracing failure things turned in a different way than what I expected.

Have you ever thought that you’ve been cursed? Well, I’m quite tired these days and everything didn’t exactly went as planned last week, but on Friday when I saw the icons of my desktop disappearing one by one, I knew my week was about to get worse.

Third and penultimate post of our series about downloadable music products. This one is about you, about me and about everyone consuming recorded music.

Step into the digital era and stop buying CDs: The Artist’s perspective.


CD = Garbage

Last December, I spoke about the environmental implications of CD production and why we should use digital audio files instead of CDs from a green perspective. As you should be aware of by now, I’m immensely in favor of digital audio products. Yes, it’s a huge step forward for our planet, but that’s not all. As an artist, I have been advocating in favor of lossless audio formats for a decade already. We’re not talking today about sound quality, but about the advantages of using digital format for an artist.

Step into the digital era and stop buying CDs: The Environmental perspective.


CD = Garbage

I’m a big fan of digital formats. I use them, I like them and I encourage people to do the same. I remember the old days when I had to choose 10 CDs of my collection before taking any plane. Now, I take my whole collection with me: who can plan what he’ll want to hear in 3 days? With this post, I’m starting a series of five posts about audio digital formats and why you should definitely make the switch.
