Saw you tear up the Solo club in Tel Aviv a few days ago. When will you visit this corner of the world again?
And a fun question... what can local musicians do to help the peace process? Nobody listens when we tell them to just get along...
I'll be back in Israel around April, it's looking like.
I think the whole 'peace process' thing is overplayed. Humans are collectively fucking dumb.
Too many people have vested business and social interests in prolonging conflict for peace to be a plausible outcome.
If everybody stops fighting, from where are the local warlords going to derive their social status? Who will pay dividends to investors in arms companies?
Peace may break out one day in your region but the conflict will just move somewhere else. Weapons manufacturers are enormously important to a lot of countries' GDP and they need war to stay in business. Their lobbying activities are very influential and few politicians have the integrity to resist them.
Hey Ott, how you doing?
I am going OTB with a 24 track Solo soon, can I ask you, you daisy chain 3 or 4 RME FF800's (same interface as me) did you ever just use the ADAT out to expand or would you recommend it?
I know using the RME converters is preferable, but on a budget, could you give me some ideas on how best to use all 24 channels going from the DAW and with various analog synths and FX routed back in?
Looking forward to your gig on the 14th, see you then :-)
I'm thinking about getting a melodica to add a little organic sound to my tracks but i"m not sure which one to buy. Hohner has many models ( student, instructor, performer )... which would you recommend and thanks for your incredible music. BTW I am a professional balloon twister and was wondering what inspired the title Mr. Balloon Hands. Thanks!!!Ott responded on 12/02/2013
