We pretty much know about life in the studio around us, but how different is it in other countries? My former assistant Joshua F Williams has been one of the top engineer/producers in the Middle East for the past 10 years, and he’ll tell us what the music scene is like in the Dubai area on my latest podcast.
Yes, the techniques are different, the instruments are different, and even the way you listen to things are different there, but Josh also sees the similarities between Europe, Los Angeles, and the UAE. It’s some interesting insight into a land that most of us are curious about, and well worth a listen.
In the intro I’ll look at the changing streaming music business (32 services have closed in the last 5 years), and at the world’s first “perfect” concert hall.
