What's Special About Antony?
Antony Ryan has become a friend of the show from a moment we’ve found out that he was the “anonymous musician” aka Paul who has sent us a challenge back in April 2018. His problem was so interesting that we have decided to record not two (as usual) but three (!!!) episodes while solving his challenge and this is how “5 ways how to feel inspired again” (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3) was created. This week, Antony (aka Paul) has visited us at the Radio Station to tell us what has changed in his life since we solved his challenge half a year ago.
Antony Ryan is one half of the electronic music duo ISAN. Since 1996 they have recorded 8 full-length albums, plus dozens of other releases and remix credits including Depeche Mode. As well as recording and producing music, ISAN have performed live around the world - from Rio De Janeiro to Tokyo - and have had their music featured in film and TV productions including the recent HBO series "The Young Pope".
Antony also works as a freelance audio mastering engineer (RedRedPaw Mastering). He has worked on over 400 commercial releases for digital and vinyl releases with highlights including Oh Wonder, Grimes, Red Snapper and Danish artists such as Rumpistol, Kalaha & Lukkif.
Antony’s (aka Paul’s Challenge)
I'm A Musician;
music is my passion and something that I truly love doing. I was working in the music industry before and it brought me great satisfaction.
But then my life changed. I moved to another country, got married, then divorced and currently I am co-parenting my 6-year-old boy. I also have a full-time employment that is not connected with music but it allows me to pay the bills.
My challenge is that after I go back from work and then take care of my son I feel tired. I don't really feel like doing anything music-related: I don't have time to work on it and my creativity is not there. My question is, how do I get back to creating and recording music while most of the time I feel exhausted and uninspired?
This is Part 1 of 2-parts program. To listen to Part 2 “Ep 79: 5 ways how to feel inspired again: Feedback from a listener with Antony Ryan and YvG5O (PART 2) - please click here
