What kind of inspiration do you draw from your dreams?? Thanks for the hours of amazing music.
Quite a lot.
One of my favourite things is to work on a track until I'm completely exhausted and then sleep for six hours on the studio sofa with the track playing really quietly on a loop
I wake up in a weird hypnotic state and start to notice things in the track I wouldn't ordinarily have noticed. It really is a form of hypnosis and has the practical effect of revealing details that would otherwise seem unimportant.
I think dreams are just your brain enjoying a bit of free time, unrestrained by the rules of being awake. i have my best ideas whilst asleep.
As part of a music technology BTEC I once had to recreate Oh-bla-di in a studio. Never again. Having said that, I found working my way round a song I wasn't keen on helped me focus on the equipment and what I was actually trying to do. Did you ever find that in your early engineering days?

I've heard that when mixing tracks that are going to be mastered to mix them a slightly dark as to let the mastering engineer make the track sing during mastering. Is this something you keep in mind while mixing.
