new york public library for the performing arts Personally I love to multitask, because I worry about wasting time. I often exercise when I'm on the phone (well should it be suitable for Madonna you will want to me?), I write letters making phone calls when I'm cooking and I often attempt to write 4 to 5 articles simultaneously, whilst taking phone calls, scheduling tweets and conversing with my better half. I drive him mad but I've done it for decades and a tough habit to destroy. However, I am aware that it isn't just the most efficient means of working. For the independent musician, sounding great isn't a rarity purely available to major label artists anymore - it is a must. Music sales could possibly have tapered, but that doesn't mean that recorded music is certainly going away any time soon. Far from it. More music has been consumed on more devices by more fans than previously in history! Musicians decide to make their music positioned on internet and satellite radio, online music streaming services including Pandora, Spotify, Rdio, Deezer, and YouTube, selling on direct-to-fan sites like CD Baby, Bandcamp, and ReverbNation, whilst still being pushing sales through 'traditional' trusted online stores for example iTunes and Amazon MP3. Let's face it, there is no excuse on an artist to release poor recordings.
