Brady, Blake, (head babe at atriacreative.co) and myself like to have beers and spend an evening talking about what new ideas we all have, what sort of things we're currently doing or into. We talk about whatever: building guitars, writing a short story, making a movie, music video ideas, album concepts, nursery color schemes, whatevs. Sometimes that will turn into a collaborative idea. We build a blue print of an idea with incantations of creative processes until it starts to feel like something viable, something fun, something interesting. Much like the inception of the Coffee & Riffs and the Black Fountain video concepts, Here : Hear was born out ideas being tossed around; a lot of that's a great idea, and what if we did this? going on.
During a discussion about how we like to hear how different effects interact and jive together, we all threw out suggestions and questions. For instance, what do modulation effects do before a fuzz or overdrive in a chain as opposed to after? or How does a delay interact with a gated fuzz? Stuff like that. So how do we turn that into a video series? Let's just play and say 'here, listen to this'. what if we call it 'Hear, Hear'. 'Here; Hear'? or maybe try 'Here : Hear'. ...yep. that's it.
Below are the first 4 episodes. Many more to come, feel free to let us know what you want to hear. Or do yourself one better and make your own, we want to see what you come up with.
