Essential Links in December 2021

December naturally is the countdown to the 24th. At least in a Christian-culture dominated world you will usually find 24 tiny doors - each to open daily, all containing beautiful content. So this month, most of the linked articles and inspirations are part of these beautifully crafted advent calendars.

This is just to say a big Thank you! to all you content creators out there for the inspiring, mind-blowing, funny articles, videos, tweets, streams and posts.

Usually, your last inspiration is your most intense one and you can take strength, drive and motivation from it for some time.

Whether you are into composing and making music or not - you should take some time to watch professor Jono Buchanan recording and composing scores and songs on stage in real time. You will be amazed how far the crafting of music has come nowadays - in so many ways. It‘s a lot about Logic Pro X - a music composing software. But you will learn a lot on arrangements, recording, creating atmosphere and weight and crafting beautiful sounds. Here are the videos:

It will probably take you a whole evening to watch these 4,5 hours - but I can assure you, it‘s worth it.
