StudioKnights has recently had an opportunity to be a part of a pilot reality webisode for Michaux TV. In this process we learned a lot about collaboration and problem solving effectively to complete a successful project. The musicians’ process is a grueling one and to have it filmed can be an efficient way to critique and memorialize the studio recording process. Most of all, it is a way to break down those barriers and really get to the root of emotions to allow for the creative process.

Collaborating with various artists in the studio is a very rewarding process. The more people involved in a music setting always allows for an in depth structure to the project. Each person brings a unique perspective to the goal of the album. This also means that everyone must learn to take others’ opinions and put them in to consideration before dismissing them.
Being in the studio for hours on end is very trying for everyone involved. There is a technical difficulty that arise and that is when emotions can run high. Learning to be an efficient problem solver and troubleshoot the issues thoroughly can take time and patience. It is important to look at things in a “glass half full” perspective.
Once the process is complete each person walks away knowing their fellow collaborators on a different level. The barrier that set them apart at the beginning is broken down and the creative juices have been tapped in to. You gain a view of each other that opens respect of another artists’ hard work and efforts in this very competitive music world.
