DAY TWO-HUNDRED AND TWO
My bedroom is now cavernous. I put a mic in the middle of the room and did some heavy improvisation to play with the sound. I stacked 2 cello tracks, both being in different places in the room. I also gave myself a time limit. I liked trying this even if it’s a bit haphazard.
I like the bells sound I got out of today, and I might use it later for something else. Instead of lifting off the mallet after the strike, I left it on the bell, stopping the vibration. There is no effects on these tracks… all virgin!
I am sick as a dog, but hoping to be better by Saturday. Hie-ho! Hope you are doing splendidly.
Band recommendation of the day: Lost in the Trees.
Saw them live on Monday at Mercury Lounge here in New York (for the second time and yet again: AMAZING.) Also, read about what they are doing with orchestra kids in this awesome program: Project Symphony
