April 11th, 2017
Today I turned in my remix project. I feel like the ideas still need some fleshing out but I got it to a decent place. David Kennedy sent in a request for me to use the Auditorium in the Tri-C Arts and Music building as the location for my location recording. It was approved for April 18th, 2017. This will be a lot easier on my musicians travel-wise.
That evening I spent time in the Yamaha DM 2000 tuning vocals for my song “Diary.” I also recorded my own vocals for “These Walls” because I do not have much time to try to coordinate with another female vocalist. I recorded my vocals using an AT 4050 so that the vocals would cut through a little better.
I also recorded percussion parts on both studio songs. I used one AT 4051 small condenser microphone. I figured I could record different types of percussion and pan them each to its own place in the mix. I recorded tambourine, Cowbell, Shaker, Rosewood Claves and a Wooden Vibraslap. I plan to see what sounds best when editing. I want to try to use the Vibraslap as an interesting effect on These Walls.
