Week 16 - Wear and Tear- TIM KORRY- Audio Recording at TAYLOR Studios-Summer 2010

Feverishly scribbling verses and rhyme under the moonlight, as almost in a trance, inaugurated week 16 of this recording blog. Three pages were written continuously as the candlelit incense swirled around the pen. The night would end in a conversation about white light and spiritual protection. Little did I know that the conversation would come back around later in the week when my friend Thom from the Kenosha/Racine Arts Network stopped by for an idea session that turned out to be a mixture of planning and paranormal discussion. Seemingly two unrelated things, however I’m not decided about that notion. Cmac, drummer for the band, had visited earlier in the week offering suggestions connecting the band with Hamburg and abroad. A lot of splendid ideas had boomeranged and discharged through the night air this past week.

Solo guitar tones for the song ‘Always’ were labored on, not knowing if they would have to be re-recorded. The partial re-drumming of ‘Light as a Feather’ began with some rhythmic exploration by Jeff Taylor. The cross between the marching snare, Egyptian darbuka loops, and rock drums are proving to be an interesting foundation for the backdrop of this song.

Stepping out with some friends, I can tell you that the Keane show in Milwaukee this past week was absolutely fantastic. Not only was the music and energy great, but they were the nicest, most humble, and appreciative band I’ve ever seen. Right on Keane (Don’t listen to your Brit critics).

Drums were finalized on ‘Always’ and a swelling string arrangement was added by JT. We are not in full agreement, at the time of this writing, about the guitar tones but it will be sorted out in the next few days. Many times differences between the styles of producers and artists unveil themselves more towards the conclusion of a project. Now is the time to have a critical ear and to focus on completion. We are heading solidly toward the destination, but I feel the process is wearing on me. TAYLOR Studios is doing most of the physical work at this point, but there is a lot of emotional/spiritual/mental drain on my end. The pressure of perfecting the CD in it’s truest feeling, promotion, social media, visioning, writing, and booking has me feeling like I am drowning…
