Tried to get on with projects this last week but it flew by. I spent a few days recording & being filmed as part of a documentary on Hojo. Nice bunch of people over from the states made up the film crew. A mixture of acoustic & Electric versions of the songs. Managed to get to see Prometheus one night… Amazing film, lots to think about, the odd cliche or reference to something else but a fantastic film. Still not quite sure what it all meant as it seemed to me a few holes weren’t filled but maybe the follow up will clear that up. Really liked the score.. Well worth going to see if you haven’t already. Monday is back in the studio getting on with the stuff I didn’t manage to get on with last week including editing some new Pete & Rob ideas we worked on before PT went to the States as well as the Tilt project with Steve Vantsis & Dave Stewart. Have a great week… RB
Mixed a media project today, played with Final Cut Pro X for half an hour ( I love it even though proper editors abandoned it in their droves, but then I don’t make my living from it ). Went for a head clearing walk & got soaked through from the British summer. Home, dry off before helping Mel organise a new exhibition in the gallery. Good day.. Tilt guitars to finish tomorrow.
Just popped round to see @robinboultgtr to get a bit of last minute work done our next 5 tracks before I hop over the pond. Editing mandos at the moment. While drinking an excellent builders tea.
Good nights work in tut studio this evening. Bits of video to edit up, plus more progress on the tracks. Had a good chat about Talk Talk & what great records they have made over the years. RB
I was asked by a friend today what instrument was being used in a piece of music he had referenced. It called a Ronroco and it’s a small double stringed guitar shaped almost like a Ukelele but bigger with a longer neck. I think they’re Peruvian. If anybody comes across one, could you let me know.
This is just a bit of fun… The track was made one evening for the Time Lapse we put together. (more…)
