a producer press shot must be showing there main weapon of use do you go with the drum machine or the syntheser i’ve got a deep mind 12 and a rytm not sure
You might break the trend and hold a giant sea turtle, or maybe an albatross
i like your thinking but then listeners may expect the sounds of these creatures as the main sounds in the music
Show em your hands and point to your noggin
Do Autechre pose with Max/MSP?
What about if you don’t have a “main weapon”? Lug the whole studio to a shoot?
Leave the gear out of the promo shots. Let the music stand for itself. Posing with a machine only really makes sense on an ad for the machine, imo.
I’d only show gear if maybe leaning against a giant wall of modular. Possibly with a cigar in one hand, and a whiskey in the other.
(I don’t smoke around gear, but for a promo…)
give them the song of the sea creatures, then!
alternately: make some fake equipment from cardboard or construction paper, knobs and all
Maybe guns or cups of codeine cough syrup drink mix?
Or do a Janet Jackson and have somebody else hold breasts in the shots?
“the producer’s nipples go to 11”
Please leave the turtles in the oceans, poor creatures.
If seen as musical instruments Behringer might copy them and flood the oceans!
Did you ever saw Missy Elliot promos with her main weapon? Or Timbaland?
well, it’s a nice idea.
me holding two Command Stations, almost 7 kg each
If I’m ever cool enough to have press shots, I will be holding nothing but the severed heads of my enemies.
Either that or a few midi cables, I dunno, I’ll see how I feel on the day…
