Many years ago I thought, maybe I should give up my work as a recording engineer/mixer and do something worthwhile with my life, like go volunteer for an eco-group and tie myself to a redwood tree. After a lot of soul searching I realized, the best we can do is do what we do best and offer it.
We all know the power of the media. If I could give away sound services to help the environmental movement or other good causes, my contribution would be many times greater than just donating money. What society needs is for us to participate and work from within to make a difference. If this altruistic framework becomes the motivation for what we do, we can change the world.
