Studio updates

Sept 16th 2020

While it may have been a quiet times for bookings the lockdown has been a great opportunity for upgrades and additions in the studio. Returning from Australia in February I bought back several new Beesneez microphones - amazing valve recreations and new designs by Ben Sneesby - check him out at: www.https://beesneezproaudio.com/

A second Universal Audio Apollo x8p interface is now in the rack bringing inputs up to 28 channels plus all the processing power I could need (for a while..!).

Katie Spencer has been in recording and tracking several tracks for her new album. Check out her website www.katiespencer.info

Great review of recent albums

Sept 16th 2020

Just prior to lockdown I completed the mix and master of Geoffrey Alvarez's 'Hölderlinfenster', a monumental song cycle recorded over 5 days in November last year:

★★★★★★ (six stars/six) in Norway's Klassisk Musikk

https://www.klassiskmusikk.com/cd-anmeldelser/geoffrey-lvarez/

"April Fredrick, who surely must be one of the finest young sopranos around currently, sings this mammoth cycle with great finesse and refinement. [...] Alessandro Viale is the rock upon which Fredrick’s wonderful singing is constructed, nowhere more evident than in some of the faster, more driven songs. [...]There is something not so much of a modern-day Schwanengesang about Hölderlinfenster but a twenty-first-century Marienleben (which from me is praise indeed!). The sound, by the way, is first rate." [Guy Rickards]

Unidentified Flying Project by Simon Wood Harris

Sept 16th 2020

Release coming soon!

Having been involved with the project practically from the start, year on year it has developed in a way that can only be described as stratospheric. The list of musicians Simon has been able to enlist is staggering and I am humbled to have created amazing music alongside the pillars of modern music - the likes of Omar Hakim, Pino Palladino, Wayne Krantz, Robbie McIntosh, Keith Carlock - the list is long!
