Last week we had the brilliant Tom Neale and Sam Watts in the studio tracking for a upcoming project. Their sound is somewhat interesting, being a blend of jazz/blues – reminiscent of bands such as Snarky Puppy and the likes – combined with some experimental sounds. For example, I witnessed an interesting 20mins or so of placing spoons and forks on the strings of our glorious Yamaha Grand Piano in a sort of ‘prepared piano’ fashion, creating a whole range of interesting layered harmonics.
Mixing has been scheduled for sometime over the next couple of weeks with experienced recording/mixing engineer Andy Rugg and promises to sound sweet. We are super excited about this release, see some of the highlights from the tracking session in this video!
