Hopefully, you had great and restful Christmas holidays where you could enjoy the time with your family and friends. At this time tomorrow, we all will probably prepare ourselves for the big New Year's Eve party or are already on the way to a fancy pre-party dinner, house party or whatever you have planned to start with big bang and fireworks to the new year 2019. With the new year, the traditional new year's resolutions are popping up in our minds letting us think about possible objectives, milestones and to-do lists for 2019. Some of us may pursue those objectives strictly, and some will not be that focussed or even fail it. A very widespread example of a failed new year's resolution I recognise every year in my gym is people signing up in January, being active for like two or three months at most and afterwards transforming their membership into an "I-do-not-go-anymore-but-I-am-stuck-in-the-contract" problem. But let us be honest - they could spend the gym's monthly contribution in something they enjoy or want to achieve. So take your time to identify your resolutions so you can be sure that you are willing to go for them. It is again about the central statement of this blog: do not waste time (and money) and allocate it to the right activities and projects! So, you ask, what is AlbrechtProductions' plan for 2019?
2018 - A Quick Flashback
The year 2018 contained a lot of special highlights related to my master study taking place in the academic year 2017/2018. Because my primary objective was to get a first class master degree, to use my time in London to gain as many professional experiences, "absorb" all impressions of culture, art and entertainment like a sponge and connect with interesting music industry professionals, AlbrechtProductions simply had no priority in that year. After finishing my master thesis, I was happy to be back for AP-related work such as continuing with my blog articles and planning new music projects. Starting with my new employment signalised a significant milestone in my relatively young professional career that is to be developed continuously. I am quite excited about how my journey will be continued.
What Is Planned For 2019?
My plans for 2019 related to AlbrechtProductions are ambitious, and we will see how far I can achieve my new objects and fulfil my wishes. I possibly will indulge my nerdy desire to expand my studio gear - analogue outboard and innovative, modern products like the Townsend Labs Sphere L22 in 2017. But more important is the resolution to begin with new, exciting productions that shall include collaborations with international artists and producers. That probably could result in a producer album that would contain songs featuring different international artists, all produced and co-written by AlbrechtProductions. Also, relocation and a new design/construction of the production facility needs to be planned for the future, so it does not surprisingly turn out as a never-ending time killer while running other projects or being busy with non-AP-related topics. The last objective on my list is to organise a networking and production meeting in the form of a vacation trip where young music professionals use the time to have fun at the beach or the pool and enjoy the time together next to writing new songs together or developing new business models. The vacation component shall increase the participant's creativity and act as a break from the daily routine. It is not clear if that is already feasible in 2019, but it will be on my to-do-list for the future. If you are interested in that concept, feel free to contact me via e-mail, and I can provide you with more up-to-date details.
Finishing with the today's article, I want to wish you all the best possible start into 2019 and a happy new year! Good luck with everything - I am sure you will rock 2019! :P
