Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die, but long after we are gone be a living thing, asserting itself with ever-growing insistence. Daniel Burnham
I can remember the first time I ever recorded my vocals on to a beat. Cat Coore from Third World - a legendary Jamaican band - had a little demo set up at his house.

The Renaissance is studded by the names of the artists and architects, with their creations recorded as great historical events. Arthur Erickson
