We flew to NYC on May 22nd, and prepped orchestrations the following day for a mammoth 12 hour recording session on May 24th at Spin Recording Studios in Long Island City, NY.
Arriving there was such a surreal experience, seeing a studio where countless legends have recorded, playing with the amazing talents of Dave Eggar (Cello), Megan Gould (Violin), Entcho Todorov (Violin), Julie Goodale (Viola) and Johnny Nice (Producer/Engineer)
In that one day, these fantastic musicians took our scores, our ideas, and brought them to life!! Dave knew just what to add to our orchestrations to make certain melodies pop, and they were often getting the music done in just a couple of takes! These tracks were ambitiously written, and we couldn't be more pleased with the result!!
The rest of the trip was a whirlwind of sightseeing, and networking with other amazing musicians. We can't wait to show you all pics and videos!
Next steps are to edit all the string parts, add percussion, any other horns/woodwinds, and send to John Rodd for mix/master -- all in the next couple of weeks!
