In a new interview with AudioSilverLining, Richie Hawtin shares his thoughts on the future of cloud-based music-making:
I think there’s a lot of promise in cloud-based studios. Honestly, I believe that most of the music in the coming years will be made in some type of Cloud based situation.
Studio’s bring people together, to collaborate, share ideas, and create ‘things’ together. The world we live in today shows us that these collaborations and sharing of ideas do not have to happen in the physical world.
Look at Facebook, Google Docs, My Space, Twitter these are all places where people collaborate, communicate, share and so forth that bridge the physical distances between them. This is the way forward with Studios and Music production.
Forget having to fly people in to jam with – jam with them online!
Note: Hawtin is an official “ambassador” for Burn Studios Audiotool – a Flash-based virtual studio.
What do you think about the potential of cloud-based virtual studios – making music in your Web browser on servers thousands of miles away?
