THIS MONTH marks a year since we merged EM and EQ magazines and launched the new Electronic Musician. Looking back, we’ve talked to a lot of artists in the past year, and we’ve gained insight into some amazing creative minds.
Everybody has their own processes and tools—whether it’s this month’s cover band, Garbage, deconstructing and reconstructing songs at home between studio stints; Skrillex tweaking tracks on his laptop night after night in hotel rooms around the world; the Foo Fighters recording drums next to the washing machine in Dave Grohl’s garage; or Moby humming scratch vocals on his Blackberry. The common thread? These artists know how to make technology work for them, yet they never lose sight of the human element.
As Electronic Musician evolves, we remain grounded in our core mission—to provide you with all of the tools you need to make better music. So as we continue to move forward, we’ll bring you more in-depth artist interviews, technology tutorials, and career resources. And we’ll help you figure out how to make them work for you. Thanks for your loyalty, and here’s to another great year together.
