I am currently in San Francisco. I just had an incredibly healthy
and tasty meal at Gratitude-yummy!
is the first installment in a series of scenes from the rehearsal,
arrangement, and recording sessions for the making of Poseidon And
The Bitter Bug. The video camera was passed around from tripod to
hand to hand. Everyone pitched in to document a bit here and there.
I will be posting in the order in which it was shot. I haven’t even
seen all the tapes, so I will be discovering just what we have as
iMovie skills have a slow learning curve, but I think these videos
in their raw form will shed some light on our album making process.
To set this up a bit, at this point, Emily and I have spent a month
alone arranging the songs, and then a week with Mitchell Froom tweaking
our duo arrangements and experimenting with keyboard parts. The videos
begin during the process of fine tuning our arrangements even more
and bringing our bass player, Clare Kenny into the musical scene.
(All apologies to Clare for starting our filming process while she’s
in the hot seat.) Matt Chamberlain will be joining us on drums when
we hit the recording studio.
had worked on the song “Digging For Your Dream” the day before this
series starts, but that tape got corrupted….Hopefully, we will see
some footage later of where that song ended up.
this first scene, Emily, Mitchell, Clare, and I are working on “Sugar
Tongue.” feeling the fire in a big way.
