Chris Gear: Tinkering with Sound, Working with Intention, and Showing Up

This week's guest is sound design wizard, entrepreneur, and tech enthusiast Chris Gear. Chris is a co-founder of the hugely popular ADSR Sounds as well as the owner of both OhmLab and SoundFreqs. He’s known throughout the industry as a go to designer and producer and has done projects with companies such as Native Instruments, Output, and Noiiz. We have an eclectic and fun chat about the importance of working with intention, allowing creation to be unique to each of us, and how giving someone a tool without telling them how to use it empowers their creativity.

In this episode, we'll dig in on...

  • Discovery through intention
  • The ability to make any sound out of any other sound
  • Finding perspective through seeing something through to the end
  • Showing up!
  • We all have the same tools, it's how we use them
  • The dangerous of being highly comparative
  • Building a viral online community
  • Going from anti-digital to digital only
  • Royalty free music

About the Podcast

Progressions: Success in the Music Industry
Interviews highlighting successful careers in music and breaking down the steps it took to achieve their goals.
I do not believe the people who have thriving careers and fulfilling lives in music can look back and attribute it all to “luck”. At some point in their career they committed themselves to a goal and took steps to achieve that goal. That's what Progressions is here to highlight. We will set you up for success by bringing you an array of interviews with guests from all parts of the industry. By focusing on identifying significant steps and turning points in their careers we hope to inspire you to set big goals for yourself and by doing so design the music career that you've always dreamed of.
