What?!: Producing an EP

What has it been like to produce an EP? What?!

If I could answer this question with one word and facial expression it would be “What?!” with a smile on my face.

First off, the fact that I can say that I am a part of producing an EP (Extended Play Record Album) causes me to wonder how this even happened.

This doesn’t happen to everyone, so why me? I know that I have said how amazed I am over and over again in my other blog posts. But the reality is, I don’t think I can say this enough. That’s why I say “What?!, as to express my constant state of awe.

What has it been like to produce an EP? What?!

My response is “What?!” when it comes to the things I don’t know. I don’t know everything, so I am constantly asking “What?!” to myself and to those around me, and to google.

Being a producer on this EP has really challenged me as a person and my abilities. If I don’t know how to do something, it’s up to me to figure it out and try my best. This is the real deal, it isn’t just a school project that only affects me. This is a project that effects so many people.

The reality of producing is found more in the details than in anything else.

The producers mind is always thinking about things not thought of.

The details are what make the EP happen and make it a success. The producer needs to think about the details of the legal aspects such as copyright and publishing ownership. And how those things will benefit the artist and the studio. The producer has to consider details such as how and when it will be produced.

Then there is the planning of marketing campaigns to promote the artist and promotional parties. There is so much to do and to think about. That is why this process has got me saying “What?!”
