Boldly Forging Ahead...
Greetings, all! Alex and I just concluded another exciting day of tracking with the immensely talented Marika Hughes on cello, and yesterday we were in the studio tracking trombone and soprano sax with Matthew Davis and Arnold Lee. The rest of the week will be dedicated to recording violin, clarinet, bass clarinet, guitar, banjo, and harp. I've been busily composing and arranging at all hours of the day, and as you can see, things are really beginning to heat up! The songs are sounding spectacular (if I do say so myself!) and I'm THRILLED to announce that I'm NEARLY 50% FUNDED!!!!!! Thank you so much for your continued contributions! Now, please help me get the rest of the way! LET'S MAKE THIS THING LEGENDARY!!! I don't want to scale back my vision just when things are really getting exciting!
The album is making great headway both in and out of the studio. On Saturday the wonderful Mia Rose and I did a test shoot (with the help of Kiyota Kashiwaya's photography skills!) of the costume piece she is designing and constructing for me, and I've posted one of the shots here. This isn't the finished product, but it gives an idea of what's to come!
