Welcome to Homemade Music

Homemade Music is about home recording as art, fun and vocation. I’m Bryan Baker, publisher of GAJOOB, a magazine featuring independent musicians since the mid-1980’s. This website has taken a few different approaches since I started it in 1999, evolving into more of a personal exploration of whatever my current state of the art is in 2023. So I talk about my studio and gear, keeping an eye on the latest stuff, while reaching out to other artists and spotlighting creative activities. You’ll also find lots of projects in which to participate.
