It is 3:30am, I'm at Christian St. Cattacombs, where I've been working and sometimes sleeping for weeks. I'm averaging 13 hours a day recording, editing, and mixing with the incredibly able Rob Pemberton, and the President of Synthesis Brian Cass. We've got 8 tracks or so mixed... several to go, but what we have so far has brought me to tears more than a few times already (serious). This week we had a special guest fly in from LA to record the female lead on the album. I have lots of footage of these sessions, as well as some mixing footage and even whiffle ball, all of which I will make available when I find a breath. There is a palpable creative electricity in this place that seems incredibly healthy. I'm so lucky to be in this environment, it is only due to Rob's charitable soul that I'm not sleeping in the park. There is so much to do.
