4 songs ready to go, drums on 5th to be recorded soon

4 songs ready to go, drums on 5th to be recorded soon

Sorry for the long delay since our last post, but things have been pretty busy around here. In the time between then and now, I managed to get nearly all of the bass, guitar, keyboard, and vocal parts recorded for Gone. There are still a few keyboard parts (which I should have done in the next few days) and some acoustic guitar left to lay down on that song, but it’s pretty much done.

After completing the recording for Gone, I began mixing down the 4 finished songs, and they are now nearly ready to be mastered. Naturally, I’ll wait until the remaining 3 songs are recorded and mixed as well before moving to that stage.

And speaking of the 3 remaining songs, we should be laying down drum tracks for the next song in a week or two.

Gord Downie R.I.P.

Gord Downie R.I.P.

It was with sorrow that we heard of Gord Downie’s death. Gord was without question one of the finest lyricists in music; a truly gifted and inspired artist, and a great songwriter. I personally was (and still am) a big fan of his enigmatic and sometimes cryptic writing which was left wide open to the interpretation of the listener. My prayers go out to him and his family. May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace, and may perpetual light shine upon him.

Lots of recording done

Lots of recording done

It’s been a pretty busy month since the last post. A few weeks ago I finished up all of the electric guitar parts to I Will Not Comply, 17, and Gone, followed by some keyboard parts for Gone, and I spent the past couple of days recording bass for the same songs. Things are well on their way now, as this brings us easily past the halfway point for recording material for the next album. Rob an I should be getting together in the next week or so to go over drum parts for the next song which will feature a classical guitar piece, which I’ve also spent a good deal of time working on in the past few weeks.

Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian fans!

new drum recordings

new drum recordings

Rob and I spent Tuesday evening into the wee hours of Wednesday morning recording drum tracks for Gone, the next song on the new Falling Edge album. There’s some pretty complex timing in this one, so it took a little longer than usual, but the extra work paid off, and the new drum tracks sound great. We also had an abnormal number of technical snafus to fight through, which always keeps things interesting. Rob’s going to take a few days to enjoy what’s left of the summer before deciding which song to work on next while I prepare to record the guitar, bass, vocals and keyboard parts for Gone. I’m hoping to tackle those things in the next month. Enjoy the last precious few days of summer everyone.

Guitar parts for I Will Not Comply and Seventeen recorded

Guitar parts for I Will Not Comply and Seventeen recorded

Sorry about the lack of updates here lately, but there really hasn’t been too much to report, as Rob and I have been mainly practicing new material on our respective instruments. I got a chance to do some recording last weekend though, and I spent most of it holed up inside laying down guitar parts for I Will Not Comply and Seventeen, both of which will appear on the next Falling Edge album. Recording went well and the tracks sound great. We now have the bulk of 3 of the 7 songs from the next album recorded, and Rob and I should be getting together in the coming week to discuss and arrange some drum parts for the next song, Gone.
