Nigel Godrich is my Phil Spector.

"Phil Spector's greatest idea was to create a whole mystery around himself, in which artists would sink. He was more an businessman than a producer, never touching the controls, leaving the engineers do that dirty work.

We don't do the same job, I work in communion with the bands, without a gun.

-Nigel Godrich,

from this interview on greenplastic. A good read for anyone interested in the music biz. Nigel Godrich is my idol.

Another good quote from the article is:

"I remember asking Pavement on the phone: 'Do you want me to make you sell a lot of records? Because it doesn't look like your aim!' And I was surprised to hear them say: 'Sure, we wanna sell records.' 'Oh good, 'cos I thought you only want to piss people off by messing up your songs!'

hahaha... Nobody wants their songs hidden in the biz, and that is a fact.

And another good one, which I sorta align myself with:

"Sometimes on [OK COMPUTER] I prove a total lack of professionalism, voluntarily plugging instruments any old how. The courage comes from Radiohead, a band that will never get out of fashion because they make the fashion. And when the others follow, they are already somewhere else, far away."

which is sorta related to:

"My technique is to set the environment to make creative accidents easier. And then all I have to do is pick the right whim of fate."

This is what I'm working towards. But the projects i'm involved in are always so rushed its hard to do it. The closest i've gotten is on the House stuff and my won projects, but my own projects don't count because the whole point is for someone else to surprise you. If I know where I'm going I always get off there. Still, that's where I'm going. Lack of proffessionalism. Happy accidents.
