I'm quite surprised by this.
I have to say that when I am recording the idea that anyone will care
about what I am doing is the last thing from my mind.
Depending on whether it is a personal project or session work my
thoughts usually range from "How am I going to make this sound huge?" to "How
am I going to make this suck less than it does?" - I've never thought
about the idea of a 'legacy'.
Wouldn't that seem a bit presumptuous and maybe a bit naff?
You are right though- if one was thinking these thoughts it would
absolutely affect the work.
I've occassionaly worked with the odd person who can be best described
as wanna-bee auteur- these people are usually more trouble than they are
worth and best avoided, unless the money is right.
I would rather an easier life, myself.
