Early update this week as I'm away for an extended weekend for fun times and hopefully seeing the only total lunar eclipse visible from around these parts in the next few years! Should be fun, but anyway, lets get started :D
First on this weeks agenda, we look to World Beyond for a super cool announcement! World Beyond founder and a great collaborator and friend of mine Vladimir Kuznetsov this week re-released his debut album "Winter Legend" (originally only available on Bandcamp) on all major digital retailers, including iTunes and Amazon as well as many more! The album features epic orchestral cinematic music including "Everything We Stand For" for which I'm playing guitar. Feel free to check out the album and read Vlad's own words about the release over on the World Beyond Blog, and check out "Everything We Stand For" (now with a cool animated background!) on YouTube below! We hope you enjoy it:
Next on the agenda are some more updates on the new Better Than The Book Album! This week has mainly been sorting out collaboration recording with Bob Axell for Track 07 which is going nice and smoothly! A lot of the Lead Vocal recordings are done (and sound sweeeeet!), though we've still a little fine tuning to do for some sections and backing vocals to plan and record. Sounding great though and should be done very soon! As well as that, I've been finishing off adding extra bits and pieces to the other recordings where necessary. Lots of strange guitar noises like pick-scrapes and dive-bombs for added impact, and sorting out the transitions between tracks. That makes 8/9 tracks fully recorded, with 5/9 having their transitions sorted too. I don't know whether it feels like there's still a lot to do or not? Still gotta mix it all which will no doubt take some time. I'm looking forward to working more on this collaboration in the mean time!
Finally, just a little strange thing that's happened: It appears that the speedy version of "A Very Useful T-Rex" has actually EXCEEDED the view count of the normal speed version! I guess T-Rex's fast level at normal speed wasn't fast enough for most folk XD Crazy times!
That's it for this week. I didn't manage to get around to those web updates, so that's still on the to-do list for next week. Hopefully most of Bob's vocals should be done by the end of next week too, which means it'll be my time to shine for doing the rest of the instrumental work for Track 07 soon (+ my own vocals). Kinda want to get that sorted before I start mixing the other tracks just so that I can mix them all at the same time. Anyways that certainly sounds like a plan for next week! Whether it all happens, we'll have to wait and see. Until then, thanks as always for supporting JabunAudio and take care!
