Mix is done!

September 28, 2017

After 27 hours of editing and mixing spread over the last 3 months, we are finally ready for the last little polishing, the mastering!  Most of the time we were just the two of us with Dave, Enoch joined us for the first roll of the mix and it was useful: he had plenty of ideas for the spatialization of the band and the frequency processing of the instruments.

We had some fun sometimes:

Bitter-sweet, we had to say bye for now after this last day of studio with those music heroes. Honestly, they have been amazing from start to finish on this project and this day was no exception!

Recording percussions on the title track

June 23, 2017

Today we were recording some additional percussions for the title track, it was at John Hadfield‘s NY apartment with a stunning view of the skyline.

I met John for the first concert of my project last Saturday, he’s incredible. We couldn’t rehearse beforehand, we just went over the beginnings of the more complicated songs at soundcheck, and John just did an amazing job! His very unique blend of percussions and drums is a delight to watch and listen and play along.

So you know, I had to have him on the album, since we needed some additional percussions on that track.

Here a beautiful piece of music where you can see his art:

Slight change of plan

May 15, 2017

The drummer we planned to have on the recording had been sick for several days, we had to find a cover last minute for tomorrow. And we found one, Rudy Royston is available and can do the session with us tomorrow, this is incredible! Rudy is just the most amazing drummer, I can’t wait to hear how is gonna interpret my music.

Incredible! I’m speechless… I mean no, THANK YOU to all the backers, 111 exactly! Really impatient to share with you this music!

WoW! Minimum goal reached!

April 8, 2017

WOW! We made our minimum goal! And we still have 7 days to go! Awesome, I hope we’ll reach our stretch goal!

I’m so THANKFUL for the help and encouragements of all the backers on my side! It feels like kickstarter owns its name: I feel the kick, a really good one, which is what I need to take the courage to bring this project to complete life.

We’re meeting today with the label founder, Enoch and we’ll book the studio very soon as now the project is really happening. And it’s not too late to jump in! You have until April 14th. Meet you there.

With deep gratitude!
