Final day in the studio, fixing up minor issues, automating, and editing.
Leaving the place looking tidy for the next person(s).
Listening to the final stereo bounced own before sending off for mastering…at least I hope so.
It was a bit wetter today but the sun shone through a bit.
I even had a tiny furry visitor.
After a little EQ and mixing I bounced out the tracks for cross-referencing. This meant I could start packing up.
Here’s the recording room at the end of day three.
I got to the Pillbox Studio after midday and had lunch before I got stuck into it. The band who were in the studio previously weren’t courteous enough to tidy up after themselves, so I spent a lot of my time tidying up cables and such. Eventually I got everything where it needed to go.
I arranged all of my own gear and cables before placing microphones.
Then I was finally ready to go into the control room and check the signals.
The patch leads are very colourful.
Happy with day one.
Days two and three will be recording tracks and starting the mixdown.
Tilde~ have uploaded a trailer for the performance they did during the Mandurah Stretch Arts Festival 2016.
I will hopefully be able to get into a studio in the not too distant future, to record an album for my tilde~ project. I want to have the six tracks of Æsthesis recorded in a live room for natural spatialisation. So we will see how it all goes.
This will be the fourth Noizemaschin!! event that I have brought to Mandurah. This time I will be performing as myself instead of tilde~ since that project is taking off on its own trajectory. I have not started on the piece that I will be performing for NM Mandurah but I have some ideas.
I want to learn how to use research data in Max to create or manipulate music. With this I may utilise the wireless controller apps on iPad as the user interface. It may turn out to be quite different to the ambient stuff that I have been performing at previous NM gigs, but hopefully it will be just as (if not more) interesting.
I am also pleased to have the young local artist Navana on the set-list for the show. She is well known around Mandurah for being a proactive singer and songwriter with an acoustic guitar. I’m hoping that for Noizemaschin!! she can broaden the already fairly wide repertoire of art that she can create.
