Back into the Woods

We had a long break over Christmas, resuming recording with two days of drums at The Playroom on 14th and 15th January. Dave Cottrell played beautifully on the five tracks, transforming the sequenced drum tracks with his wonderful, creative playing.

Yesterday (23rd January), I spent a day recording bass parts: electric on ‘Dakar’ and acoustic on the other four tracks. It was a long day: 10:00 till 18:00, and I was really tired at the end, but it was a very productive day.

The tracks now have human basses, drums, keyboards and brass. We have two sessions booked to record reeds and flutes, and then it will be percussion, guitars and voices.
