Nothing like a snowkissed studio session. Final stages of tweaking… while the snow makes Rothkos of the windows.
Master at work. Time for Rico to lend a final ear to the four tracks intended for EP1. Watching him coax our mixes to a new level is a privilege: parts are woven together to form a solid sonic picture.
Session 7 in The Doghouse… tweaking tweaking tweaking mixes of the first four tracks. And playing with CCTV. Getting there.
After a five-month hiatus… session 6 in The Doghouse. Trying to reach final mixes of four tracks, while push-pulling the overall sound of the project. Working across the rooftops.
Refreshed and ready for session 5. Firmly in the realm of sonics now; tweaking pianos, cementing the rhythm section, sculpting each piece and pulling everything together. And creating bass dirt with whatever is to hand…
Doghouse session 3, setting up two more tracks then straight into initial bass recording. We end with four tracks of bass in the can.
Session 2 in The Doghouse, revisiting STROKES and SERTRALINE… shaping the overall sound as a loose template for the next tracks.
Back from Glasgow with the first two tracks in great shape. A big shout to Rico at The Doghouse for his sonic crafting and treatments, and to Gerry Gregory for his engineering stamina.
A hugely enjoyable session mastering demo clips with the supremely patient Jon Jetter at Right Angle Recording. Great to hang out with him and his toys again. And a chance to take elevator portraits.
