A visual portrait that delves into the people and processes behind self-recorded music, featuring some of the biggest names in music today.

Everywhere you look, musicians are creating, recording, and selling their music without the help of big-name studios, producers, or labels.

This book offers tangible--and visually stunning--proof that self-recording is a path to artistic freedom. Each chapter takes on a specific aspect of self-recording through original interviews with musicians and all new photography, revealing the joys and complications of recording music on one's own terms. You'll learn how some of your favorite musicians charted their path to self-recording and how they use emerging technologies to make exceptional music.

The book features intimate shots of artists recording in living rooms, backyards, and garages--such as Eleanor Friedberger, Mac DeMarco, Vagabon, Tune-Yards, Yuka Honda, and more.

The first book devoted entirely to the practice of self-recording, Mirror Sound charts a way forward for any musician who aspires to make their own music and those who just love to listen.©2020, 192 pages

Next to images of musicians in their natural habitats, you'll find universal advice and new approaches to making art that might spark ideas for your own creative process--even if you're not musically inclined. It's an encouraging companion you'll want to keep handy for the long winter ahead. - HERE

This lush coffee table book is filled with insights from the likes of Sharon Van Etten, Suzanne Ciani, the late Emitt Rhodes, Mac DeMarco, Tune-Yards and nearly 25 others. While there's plenty of gear-packed studio shots to pore over, the book takes more of a philosophical bent as it explores why people self-record and the give-and-take of the process. - Pro Sound Network
