It's around 4.30 am and much as I have nothing against our feathered friends, there is one outside that has an amazing tune, it's very loud, fairly complex and annoying. I know I could shut the window in the hope I'll drift off again, but the sound is now etched into my head. Time to get up, make tea & get the recorder out for future sonic manipulation. RB
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
Great day again today. Very tempting to go lounging around in the sun. Right now I’m trying to sync up some video footage for a wee project with the excellent Robbie Bronnimann. Off to the studio later to try out more Tilt ideas. Have a great day one and all… RB
