Scott Lawlor reached out to me to start a conversation, and after hearing his story, I was anxious to get his story on the podcast. He is part of numerous collaborations, does live performances (including his "isolation concerts" during this COVID lockdown) - but my bell was rung when he mentioned that he'd done around 250 releases.
250 releases! I had to learn more...
It turns out that Scott's work is really flow-oriented, and that he is able to drop into 'recording mode' really quickly. He also really enjoys long-form recording, so much of his work greatly exceeds the EP/LP-length work we've come to understand.
He also fluidly moves from genre to genre, one day working on New Age piano pieces, the next day doing experimental noise pieces. Talking with Scott about his recording efficiency, style morphing and music-life balance opened some real perceptual doors for me.
Check out his work here - https://scottlawlor.bandcamp.com/music - as well as on many netlabels. You can also check out his Isolation Sets on his YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgabrCpbhSheucDCf3V3Q1g
