You don’t make a photograph just with a camera.
You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen,
the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.
Ansel Adams

You don’t make a recording just with a microphone.
You bring to the act of recording all the sounds you have ever heard,
the books you have read, the music you have listened to,
the films you have seen and the people you have loved.
