Maybe its because I identify with the plight of being 'invisible' but I often feel bad about music producers. Not for too long obviously. But I mean, am I mistaken, but don't they actually create the sound of the album (or the song). They are similar to the director of a film. The singer is just like the actor - important yes, but essentially another instrument. Is that fair to say that?
Who is this?
Why it's William Orbit. No? He produced Madonna's Ray of Light. But you wouldn't know that from its amazon page. Not a mention of him. I quite like the sound. So I might want to check out some of the other productions of his. Like I might want to see other films directed by Spike Jonze after enjoying Adaptation. Well bad luck. You can't.
Why is that? What is it that says we are allowed to follow Madonna's career but not William Orbit. Unless of course he was a hyphen. Like Dr Dre (producer-artist) or Simon Cowell (producer-TV villain).
And let's not even get started on who writes these songs!
