Recording last recordings

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009


I guess it’s destined to be this way: I started recording this album in 2004 in my bed room at my parent’s house. I used to call that the Rbbknl Studios. And now I’m back there for two weeks to record the very last stuff for the same album, five years later.

Mixing, mixing, mixing…

Monday, September 15th, 2008

Everything is recorded, except for the vocals (kind of important, maybe I should write it down somewhere so we don’t forget…). So now were making the first mixes. Because it’s hard to sing nicely when all you’re thinking is “this mix sucks!”.

Sander is helping me out a lot with his technical knowledge and a good set of ears. It’s good thing we live in the same house, because I have to call him out of his room every ten seconds with some stupid question about Logic. After a few “Sandeeeer? Saaaandeeer!!” he then slowly walkes into my room, with some sarcastic smile/frown on his face and all he does is stare at my screen(s) for a while. Just long enough for me to discover my stupid mistake. Oops. Thanks. You can go back to bed now.

Recording the drums

Tuesday, August 5th, 2008

One year later, and you probably didn’t expect me to still be working on the same album… Well, I am! The same 12 songs, but in a slightly new arrangement. I suddenly got all fed up with the beats and electronics and how fake and flat it all sounds. I want it to be organic! Alive! Let’s do the human thing!

So we started out by recording some drums, for seven of the songs on the album. Sander and I built a diy-studio in the Only Seven Left-rehearsal room. Let’s get to the pics (click for larger versions)!
