The very essence of music is to communicate. over the years we have seen the immense impact of music on society and how it has contributed in molding our minds. it’s really no surprise that every country as well as organization where emphatic allegiance is required, has got an anthem.
Songs, riffs, syncopations and every musical razz-mattaz tends to noise if they do not send an understandable message to the target audience.
Here I seek to stress that beyond sending a message, you must connect to your audience with that message in the very language they can understand.
We know that people remember best what they see over what they hear. this simply means that you must ensure that your music is not only heard but seen.
Music ( particularly gospel music) is highly communicative. in a circular setup, the beats and effizy in the song can make up for clear understanding of the message. This, however, is far from the case in current gospel music where not just the words, but the depth of the meanings of those words matter.
I suffice to say that from my experience in recording (about 10 years), I’ve come to realize the best way to record your music to have maximum impact. This applies especially to deep worship and exasperating praise/ dancing songs.
RECORD YOUR MUSIC WITH A LIVE AUDIENCE…That is the first secret.

The feeling is different but real. the performance may be filled with musician’s idiosyncrasies but very impactful.
