Is playing your music for a live audience the most effective way to gain exposure and build a fan base or do you have any tips for doing this other ways? Also thank you for all of your inspirational music.
The only tip I can offer is not to do anything to try to gain exposure or a fan base. Just make the best music you can and make it as available as you can. If it's good people will listen, and if they like it they'll play it to their friends.
Do that patiently and the rest will follow.
Im really overjoyed that I can type "ask ott" into google and ask you a question...the future eh'...i love you..is that a question?Ott responded on 10/19/2015 Next question
Hi Ott, have you heard of "Teenage Engineering Pocket Operators" ? Theyre like affordable gameboy-like loop-creators. Theres one for drums, one for bass and one for melodies. They seem very easy to use and also powerful.
Im just getting back into making music with Reason, but I miss having some hands-on hardware. These operators seem like a good place to start, next to a MIDI-keyboard.
like the raw and digital chip-tune sounds they make. And I'm thinking in combination with more personalized instrumentals they could function as a reliable backbone for percussion and bass sounds. Would love to hear your impression/ opinion!
