The work has started on the recording. The mystery of the buzz from the Hammond in the rig was solved with a DI box. Running the effects on the digital piano through the 212 worked out and we got a good mix on all the sound sources. We cut Possible, Overbored, NOLA, Epstein’s Denial, and Dimes. It was good to get the arrangements down for those tunes. I didn’t notice until know that is half of the first batch. My attention is on the transitions between the composed lines regardless of the improvisation on the composed lines. Know your exit and you can drive in any direction for any length of time and when you’re ready the path to that exit is there. Picked up a 4 input USB audio interface to gain control over each individual sound source to assign them to their own track. Looking forward to the session Wednesday to test it out.
Session 29DEC12 Notes
I’m excited. A lot of progress has been made since September. Originally I started with the intention of recording the catalog and adding players as I went along for gigs in the future. But when has life ever gone according to plan? Patrick O’Neal called up and wanted to put a project together. I told him about the idea behind meiuuswe and he wanted to do it. I’m lucky to have a good friend that is an awesome drummer. So we have been rehearsing our first batch of original compositions. The plan is to record in late January and to start gigging to support the record. We’re working on some video and song samples as well. In addition I’m sitting in with some local friends on the 7th and the 21st for some last minute gigs before the end of the year. Check the gigs page for details. We’re busy and happy!
