I havn't done much of anything with audio engineering for several months now since I'm not going to recording school at the moment, but a guy I know asked me to engineer a live show at my favourite hangout tonight, so I did it. I was afraid that my lack of practice would shine through and I would fuck up big time, but I managed to do rather good mixes for all the bands. I was on top of things, and it felt so incredibly good. Once I got settled in with the first artist I felt this wave of anxiety, stress and stagnancy melt in my chest. It was so good to be doing something like that. Being on the line, doing something creative in front of full house and getting good response from the bands, the organizers and the audience.
Why do I *always* forget how important music really is to me? It always happens for a short time in the winter then I get miserable and depressed only to find it again and be filled with joy.
Now I also have a hookup with a group that puts on a lot of local shows, and has started a large 2 day art and music festival that I volunteered at last summer and will definitly have to be around for next year. I'm leaving town for several months now, so I won't be able to do any more shows with them for awhile, but I'm just happy I got to do this one and that I have the connection I do. I don't care if it's volunteer work, its a great way into the music scene.
Bah! I'm happy, even though my muscles are achey and i'm tired. I feel satisfied that I did something more than sit at home on the computer tonight.
