RE: What does the Artist think?

I'm having a major Ozric Tentacles session tonight and it's got me thinking about the sort of hi-fi that the artists might have at home to assess/enjoy their work once it's been been finished in the studio; could this be a magazine feature?

Currently listening to: Ozric Tentacles - Strangeitude

How old do you have to be to know the answer, without googling it?

(I grew up with that question)

I'm guessing many of them don't. Many of them are probably like some actors who never watch their own films. Why would they care what the end result sounds like? There are people who take care of how the album is mixed and presented to the public...

RE: What does the Artist think?

I have always wondered if artists and musicians care about the sound quality of their recordings and have often fantasized about  how a musician would react to listening to a recording of their music on my system .

I think some artists do care about sound quality , I watched a documentary about Michael Jackson recently and he was ultra fussy about the sound of his recordings and would do them over and over until he was 100% happy .

It seems there are some other artists that do care and have decent HiFi systems too .

I suspect there are many more audiophile musicians  than people would imagine but they are just reluctant to talk about  it shifty

Blimey your fantasies are tame compared to mine. My fantasies usually involve me and Drew Barrymore naked in a huge vat of strawberry jelly, and all you want is some musician to listen to their CD on your HiFi. One of us needs counseling.  embarassed

I do have other fantasies that would probably be considered to be more mainstream  Quest but I doubt that the moderators would allow me to post them here Shock Wink
