Number 9I entered a room filled with enticing sights and smells. Neroli, bergamot, aloe, and jasmine diffused through the energetic air of the bustling low-lit room. Yeah, I was at the salon. In the pursuit of a new image, the idea was brought to the table that I should try a darker three-toned hair color for the upcoming photo shoot. Becky Wallace worked her color magic with skill and artistry. This partial rock makeover served in the transformation process well.
Bono, Steven Tyler, Jim Morrison, Michael Hutchence, and Marc Bolan were all accounted for in the theme and feel of the vision team’s design. Photo was shot with a high def camera on a green screen backdrop. This would allow the photographer to introduce the imagery the team had discussed previously. African and Indian drums, along with a didgeridoo were included in the shots…you know, due to my mastery of the didgeridoo and all (I’m working on it). Altogether, it was an interesting day filled with different looks, textures, and of course… eye makeup. I’m looking forward to the next batch of promo shots with a better sense of what will be involved.
Jeff Taylor paid a visit to my home studio this week to grab some of the deep Gabriel-esque grooves that were used in pre-production from my system. Extraction of loops from the demon possessed electronic workstation otherwise know as my pc, went fairly easily. However, I discovered a new low groan emanating from somewhere in the machine. It really is that scary. Time for Windows 7 I think.
The week ended with the insertion of the missing pieces into the current studio mix. We sifted through the guitar and bass lines to be re-tracked and discussed the focus of the weeks ahead. Today we finalized the text in the ½ hour-long interview that was conducted last week. The next week is sure to be more intense as we try to decipher the code of the ancients…. I mean work out the maze of trippy guitar bits that I wove into the pre-production lines. What was I thinking? I don’t remember. Week ten emerges from a briny deep place in the unconscious…
