Project Status Update
This week I got back the first mix of the album. I'm very happy with the sound! There are a few minor changes that need to get fixed, that will happen by mid-week next week and then it will be ready to send off for mastering.
A while back, when MySpace was cool, my band KouseFly had a song up that Natasha really enjoyed. It's called Bluhai Flower. When I told her that I'd like to do a fundraising CD for her she asked if it was going to have Bluhai. So, I asked my former bandmate, Chris Evans who wrote the song, permission to record it and included it with the songs during the session at Revolver Studios.
I have to admit, the song didn't go as smoothly as the others. I fell off the click, forgot the lyrics or messed up the chords. I was just about to say, "maybe it's not meant to be..." but the engineer said, "your sister loves the song though."
He set me up with a guitar mic and a vocal mic (during recording of the other songs we did it separately) and he said, "just play the song."
I pulled out my flip camera and said "I'm going to record some video." I recorded every take. We started having fun with the song, adding claps and other elements. The song had a life of its own. Rescued from what I was just about to toss in the "at least we tried pile."
I edited the video of what I recorded. Made it look like Honest Abe would be back jammin' on guitar with me, and created this behind-the-scenes look of Natasha's Fight...
