Spec Time Concept
"Spec Time" is an arrangement between recording studio owners and creative artists. Artists are allowed to use the studio at no up front cost in the hope that what is created will earn money and pay the studio bill at some time in the future. Studios are motivated to enter into these agreements because they realize it is better to give some time away and have a chance of making money rather than just leaving the studio empty. These "Spec Time" deals almost never pan out, but artistic success is a popular goal so everyone keeps trying to "make it big". Successful artists can tell their own stories, so these stories focus on the 99% who live to create, but usually give up or die beneath the headlines.
