Hi, for awhile now I've wanted to start a home recording project. Two problems: I don't really play any instruments, and, I have no idea how to do any of this stuff. Since I have no instrumental experience, I guess I'd just be an experimenter with different sounds...can I get any help as to where to start? What I should buy/do? I guess I'd wanna experiment with guitar and different drum sounds...I own a drum set/guitar (they were my brother's) so I'd use those. I guess I'd need a cheap recorder/synth/sampler/whatever...like I said, no experience, but I think I know enough about music composition to start something. I'd have to say my favorite bands/composers would be....
Liars (last album was awesome)
Gui Boratto (Chromophobia)
Ricardo Villalobos (amazing)
Panda Bear/Animal Collective (probably my favorite)
They would be my key influences.
I'm not asking for much.... just anything in terms of producing/recording a sound. Thanks in advance!
