Absolutely love this.. Looks like you played on a track ..or two. What was your role on the production end? I'm super curious about the strings. How did you record them? Where they double tracked?
Thanks M57! I was the producer/engineer for the project but played the electrics on the title track as well as some synth and acoustic guitar here and there too. The 5 song EP took quite a while to complete actually. We tracked most of the tracks in 3 days in a lakeside cabin in Central Oregon (Suttle Lodge), then we did the strings and the big drums on the song Eclipse in one day in an old church in my little town. It’s now a musical venue but has a great sound for acoustic music.
We found some local teen string players who were pretty good (sight-read the score!) and brought them in for an evening. 3 songs, 3 hours. I recorded them with a spaced pair of Josephson C617SET mics over the quartet, and I spot mic’d each player too (4038 on both violins, MK67 on the viola, and an M149 on cello...also Wunder CM7S in Omni high in the corner of the room for some spaciousness). I’ll try to post some photos soon of the sessions.
