On the recommendation of a co-work J. and I watched a Bosnian movie called Fuse on Thursday. I thought it was very well done especially if you are familiar with the conflict over there. J. thought it was a little slow.
Went out to Vinyl on Saturday with my buddy Wax to check out DJ Sneak from Chicago. It was fun to get out and do something different than the norm.
Laid down some tracks for an upcoming Royal Dead recording last night. May possibly be one of the last sessions in my temporary area before moving into the new studio. Our final building inspection should happen on Thursday and I’ll spend all Friday hauling equipment into the new space and hooking things up. The construction and planning has been going on for so long now, since the end of April…I’m stoked that I will finally be able to move in.

Spent last night in the studio with a certain young lad. We recorded some vocal overdubs that turned out rather nicely, especially after a little bit of studio experimentation. Two tracks completely recorded and mixed, hopefully next Friday will yield a third.
On Thursday I had Mad Wax over and we finished a track that we had started in our previous session. Next week we’ll clean up the mix a bit and start a new track. Pretty hopping club tunes.
I think the cable jack on one of my guitars needs to be fixed, the connection kept shorting out last night. I opened it up today and tightened some things, hopefully that fixes it because I’d rather not have to replace the jack on this one already.
After our little session I went out for a few drinks, dropped by ol’ Netherworld to say hi to everyone. Despite a slight hangover today from the well rums I was able to record some piano for a trip-hop style tune I’ve been working on. The piano sound itself turned out a bit dark, probably because the strings and hammers on it are old so I threw a little EQ on the track to brighten it up. I had picked up this piano originally from the CU music conservatory, it dates back to the 1920’s I believe. It’s got a sticky key here and there and should probably be tuned again but it’s nice havinig a real piano around. I really can’t stand the sound of fake piano modules in recordings.
