Today we really got into Anytime Soon and and the was some really crazy stuff going on. I love watching Bleu work his magic and having Joe back really adds to that magic. I learned about Mellotron today… apparently they were the first sampler, using actual taped sounds of different instruments and when you held a note down the tape would run out, rewind and then continue. It makes everything sound cool. I love it!
I keep trying to get candid photos on Bleu but this is pretty much what Joe and I see everyday. He’s in the zone.
Keatly, my pigFactory publisher, stopped by today and we all headed down the road to have what Bleu says are ‘ literally the BEST fish tacos EVER’. As usual, he was right and here is me and Keatly about to enjoy them.
Back at the studio we had a stand-up bass player coming in and there is nothing quite like the sound of real stand-up bass… gorgeous! Thanks Nate Light!
Our final thing of the day was starting Floating Away and Bleu added some guitar… really nice to have someone else’s guitar on the album. This meant that Joe was in charge of the recording… you can almost see the terror on his face 🙂
Joe’s in-laws were in town (whom I loved partly because they thought I was 18… I’ll live on that for weeks!) so we went out for chinese and I ordered the tangerine chicken because it’s what Sheldon always orders on The Big Bang Theory and I was curious as to what it tasted like. The guys bought the weirdest sharing drink… it had a weird name but can’t remember it now… but it came with very long straws and has a ridiculous amount of alcohol… hic.
