The music for Stagehand

I linked to this post in #32 but, just in case you missed it, I’m linking to it properly because I believe it deserves it.

Cabel Sasser, on creating the intro song for Stagehand:

There was no way I was gonna be able to put a “live” version of the song together by myself. I’m basically musically illiterate, don’t know instrument ranges, can’t write music, don’t know any players, have no studio experience, etc.

Self deprecation aside I recommend you run run run over to Cabel’s blog and read the entire post and listen to every track as this audio bit goes from idea to reality. I love how Cabel shows off his work.


Noah Read on music:

When I became a teenager this music fell by the wayside as my tastes followed those of most teenagers trying to be cool while not popular. Some of what I liked then has stood the test of time, but much of it has proven itself culturally and emotionally bankrupt. In recent months I have found myself returning to the classical music of my childhood when I need to think, meditate, and focus. I have been drawn back to Beethoven particularly.

I’ve always enjoyed the classics far more than anything pop. Classical, jazz, folk, rock.
