We added more things that can go wrong to the audio chain, today. We will find out if it all works... Tomorrow. When we do Episode 10. Think it's crazy out there? I have a rhythm section in my garden. catch it in the studio audience on discord or at twitch.tv/stormcellarband. 10:30 am Friday sydney time and 7:30pm central US time. Downtime. All the time. Sometimes. These times.
Filmed one man guerrilla style on the street near Central in downtown Sydney, with a line in from the guitar, a Zoom HN6 and a Random Red Haired 'Adult Beverage' Influenced Rando who sat down to watch. We couldn't make this stuff up.
Despite the external Chaos, inside the stormcellar it's chaos-as-usual. 'Fool for you' from our Clarksdale session is getting a remix and some development.
This one reminds me of 'Sail Away', where it was touch and go between 'YIKES!!!' and 'ahhhh'. During the development work for Sail Away we had a version that sounded like Carmen Miranda was dancing to it. Entirely too much coconut.
We fixed that with some development work after a moment of hysterical laughter from me that did not endear me to my band mates.
With Fool For You, there are some mixing issues, some spill issues and then?
Well. The first part of the verse. Yeah.
Instrumentation? The beat? The drum sound? The Bass line?
There is a threshhold where it makes more sense to record it again than try to fix something, yet there is nothing 'wrong' with this version. I just want more out of it. So I could be absolutely wrong. With help from Marcus I tried some additional instrumentation and I am waiting on a few players to test some ideas. We'll see.
I feel like there's a real gem here if we can cut it well enough.
While that's happening, we're gearing up to start recording multi tracks of the streaming show. Over the next month we'll see if we can get a solid recording out of it.
That, plus a bit of mixing and finishing off our Clarksdale stuff, is going to keep me plenty busy for the next little while.
Episode 9 so soon? If you are out watching history being made on TV you can join us later, or if you need a break, the next ep is the Smile Episode. Just like a regular episode but with 100% more Sloths
Remember Aussies, the show is on 10:30am Friday morning here in this hemisphere, and through the magic of the internet, winds up back in the US last night. yesterday. Last week? Thursday? Gezundheit? Doooooown tiiiiiimmmmeeeee!
