In the studio with Grace Young
Yesterday, I was working in the studio with Blacktape's new violist, Grace. We were recording a minimal accompaniment to the song currently named "1226 Horn Mix 6." 30 second clip at YouTube embed above ( or ) A few photos: It's fun recording with Grace. It's on-the-spot creation! Shaping the piece on the fly, laying down fragments and lines and then moving to the next section. The idea was we were recording Grace's viola as an accompaniment; but along the way, it was calling out to be more melodic and apparent than what I envision as a textural track. It started sounding like we were creating a new song! Now I am letting my brain work on this in the background while I prepare to launch the MONOLITH Kickstarter . I'm thinking perhaps it will be a multi-movement song. Enjoy!
