I See Music, LLC

The Vision

The vision of I See Music was birthed out of a non-visual observation. Those who don’t see, still see music. Therein lies an innate desire to create and record music without depending on their sighted counterparts. Thus, I See Music was born.

History

I See Music was founded in 2011, and based in Beecher, IL, a suburb of Chicago. The company is functioning under the direction of Byron M. Harden, founder and managing partner of I See Music, LLC. Mr. Harden is also the owner of On The Moon Recording Studio, located in Beecher, IL.

 It was discovered by Mr. Harden that there was no program available that could educate sightless engineering professionals

As a producer and engineer, Mr. Harden has always struggled with vision issues. As his clientele from different genres expanded, the awareness of his talent as a visually impaired musician also grew.

It was discovered by Mr. Harden that there was no program available that could educate sightless engineering professionals.

Even without an existing program or organization in place, Byron Harden decided to employ the services of a fully sighted person to assist him in memorizing the buttons on his rolling hard disk recorder, 2480. In addition to that, he developed techniques for recording live instrumentation with regards to instruments, vocals, and environments.

Although it hadn’t been thought of yet, I See Music was taking shape.
