Quotable Quotes

Look for your windows. They’ll open for you and you’ve got to be ready to jump through. That means practice your art and study everything that enthralls you. If you do that, you’ll know which window is for you and which window to let close behind you.  ~ Tony Maserati

 My philosophy is to make records that have a unique sound. Too many records sound the same these days, because everyone is using the same gear. So part of what I’m doing at my mix room is to combine analogue gear from the ’50s onwards with the latest digital equipment you can buy today, and mold all that together in a collage to create a record that has its own sound and that stands out. If the record is faithful to the song and to the artist and also has a different aesthetic to what’s normally out there, you really hit a home run. I want records to leave an indelible mark on listeners and I want them to remember the record because it’s great, not because of what I have done. That’s an art.  ~ Jack Joseph Puig
