I still haven’t gotten that microphone yet.

I”m getting really anxious.  Like I said, I hope eBay isn’t a lie.

Hopefully eBay doesn’t lie to me.

Recording

I had a really good day recording with my brother today.  We were adding studio instrumentation for a friend of ours who played just played piano and sang.  We messed around with some microphone placements and I think we presented the song well for this friend.  It’s a such a great feeling when I am actually happy with my recordings because typically I am not.  Can’t wait to do the same thing tomorrow.

Last Night

I played a show at Mead’s Corner last night with my new guitar.  It was fun playing a show; we haven’t really gotten to play a show in a while.  On top of finishing my personal album, my band is writing an album as well.  We will be recording it very soon.

After the show, my band mates and I went on a little camping trip.  It was simply one of the best nights I’ve had in a while.  We just talked about little stuff and just enjoyed the outdoors.  We slept on the grass with some blankets, well, until it started to rain.  Regardless of the rain, it was still a fun time.

My personal album will take a couple weeks/months to finish the mixing portion depending on how efficient my schedule blends in with my free time. Mixing will take the longest out of all the things I do to the songs.  As I said in my last post, the total running time is approximately 53 minutes.  Currently I have 16 songs to mix; there may be more songs I add along the way when I finish though.  I am still unsure about a release date.

Finished the recording process for my album “high school”

It has come to that time.  The mixing stage will begin.  The running time currently is 53 minutes.  Thank you for helping me make this possible.  Goodnight.

Recording

Time to spend the rest of my evening finishing the final recording touches to my album.  Some of my favourite things: coffee, recording and solitude.
