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.

It’s more or less been in limbo, aggregating videos and other content about making music in home studios. I’ve wiped it all clean to […]
