Hey there Protagonists! We had a great all-day recording session on Sunday. Producer-engineer Melissa Ferrick showed up with all of her millions of gear and twisted lots of knobs and measured big microphones' distance from one another (this is I'm a poet-not-a-musician speak for "the woman seems to know what she's doing, though I'm not clear on what that is at all times." I always felt this way while traveling and doing sound checks with Pamela, Lyndell, Ember, and Chris..). Melissa is also doing the music for the tracks so I'll get an audio glimpse into that next week. We have one more recording session to lay down vocals in a few weeks.. but we're pretty sure this project will be ready before the holidays.
Also, I've never done this before, but I am working on one last poem and I would like to know what's on your minds.... that is to say, what are you wondering about, what are you waiting for, what are you grieving, what are you witnessing? These thoughts would be helpful to me as I approach the last track. You can email me here or at: firstname.lastname@example.org or post on facebook if you're the public type;)
I'll leave you with a few pics of Melissa and the kid: two people that are making me pretty happy these days.
In Solidarity. Alix
