“It’s all just wire.”

 Eight years ago I stepped into what was the start of my audio career.  I was beginning my internship at Blackbird Studio.  Not really knowing what I was getting into at the time, I was nervous.  Luckily I’ve had some amazing teachers along the way.  The one thing that has stuck with me from those early days is a quote from one of those teachers, Jeremy Cottrell. On just the second day of my internship I was working the evening shift from 4pm until, who knows… We were setting up a tracking session, and it was all feeling a little overwhelming, he took us aside and said, “Remember…it’s all just wire.”   After that sunk in, I really started looking at things on a more simple level.  Getting down to the basics of most technological components is either a literal, or a metaphorical wire.  The latter in the form of ethernet switches and microprocessors.  So when the confusion of setting up your first hits, just “remember…it’s all just wire”. 

Examples of our recent wiring and one U67 beauty shot are above.
