Where is the best place for music, to be performed.? Stage, Studio, or Private House.
The title is a bit of a mouthful, but let me explain a bit more. Some weeks back, I got in to a debate or maybe an argument, with a fellow musician/singer. We were both giving our views, on the places where music sounds better. What comes out of a recording studio often sounds great, because the person recording it, can take their time with the whole project. However, live music on stage is also important, because the performer will do their thing in the public eye. Whatever happens, will happen on the spot. Performing live, also seems more professional. In my opinion, music in private houses, does not have the same magic. Anyone who can play traditional, can and will play it in the privacy of their own house, but quite often, there is no one to give them encouragement. People who want to perform something different, will sound better on stage. Singing will always work better, when there is someone providing backing. However, Instrumental music has it’s upside. If musicians make a mistake in the tune, they can easily smother the notes, and sometimes it will work. Singing can be a problem, for people with poor voices, or people who get nervous. It might be harder, to bluff your way, if you make a mistake while singing. Let’s hear the views, on this topic.
