A quote from Menasche: “I used to think of music and journalism as two separate things,” he says. “But once I started working on films, especially documentaries, I realized that having both skills gave me more ways to communicate. Being able to understand a story makes my music more effective; being so directly involved in a range of music projects helps me get more insightful information when interviewing artists and music business people for the magazine. Being able to explain how music technology works helps me think about the best ways to use the tools I have available to me in the studio.” Image Credit: www.menaschemedia.com
