Making a CD utilizing the internet
Hi everyone,I am writing this
blog to share my experiences from my new CD, 'Asylum In Playland'. I found it fascinating and extremely rewarding doing this
cd and wanted to share my experience with you all.
My new cd featuring Stu Hamm,Atma Anur, and N.Y. Yankee great Bernie Williams is finished.
was 2 years in the making but I'm so happy with the final product. This is a project that was recorded utilizing the internet.As many records are done these days.But it still blows my mind. The drums were recorded in Krakow Poland,the bass
in California,and Bernie Williams in New York. I put the demo references together in my studio in N.Y. then sent the tracks
to Stu.He put his bass tracks down and sent the wave files back to me. Then I sent Atma the demo with the new bass tracks.I
had to make a decision as to who to send the demo to 1st.(Drums or bass)I decided to send it to Stu 1st for his melodic and
harmonic input. It really could have gone either way. Atma then took Stu's tracks and played to his tracks picking up little
subtleties that Stu played. This gave the rhythm track ALOT of continuity. It sounds like they played in the same room at
the same time. Blew my mind! The tracks could have sounded quite sterile and disconnected. But just the opposite happened.
Hearing the results allowed me to add my overdubs with much inspiration! Bernie then got his track with all the final (keeper)
tracks. And of course he killed his track with a feel and technique that was awe inspiring to say the least. Almost forgot,
we did something that was very unconventional. Atma mixed his drum tracks 1st before I mixed the whole CD.He eq'd,edited,etc..If anyone knows about drum sounds its Atma. I was a little skeptical about mixing the cd in
this way.Reason being that the bass and drums need to be eq'd with everything else took that away. But.It worked!!
This is a condensed version of the sessions but you can get the idea of the process.
You can give
a listen at any online distributors. Please let me know your thoughts.
