There is less and less time left to the moment when we launch the album ‘Like a Supernova’. The process of mixing is already begun and we now share with you some final video cuts from our recording kitchen. The main character of the eighth studio report is our sax player Stanislav Shushkevich. He’d recorded solo parts for several tracks, using not only alto and flute but also soprano saxophone which is rare enough for funky music.
Our seventh studio report is dedicated to probably the most important phase – a recording of the vocal parts. Fortunately, this process was quite painless and sometimes even funny enough. It’s important that, besides our main vocalist Pavel Vorontsov, for this time we invited two wonderful female singers – Elizabeth Rybalko and Julia Dyachkovskaya. Needless to say that all of them did their work the best way!
Now there are just a few sounds left to be recorded. Stay tuned for more!
Our sixth studio report is dedicated to the most elaborated process — a recording of horns and percussion.
Besides some obvious difficulties with sounding and performance, we have had to manage a lot of organizational and logistic moments, finding space within our live schedule. Thank God, finally we’ve recorded both our percussionist Mills and the pack of for horns. Gotta move on up and record the vocal parts!
Our fifth studio report introduces another guest in the studio — Vital from Synoptix band.
Vital was invited to record some ‘vocal’ parts for the song called ‘Funkiest Situation’. While its lyrics were written in ‘human’ English, they were meant to be sung through a talkbox effector. The words were hard enough for singing through a flexible tube, but Vital had coped with the challenge at his best. Who would doubt this?
The S.G.T.R.K Media Lab studio become our new recording spot but this time there was our man, keyboard player and sound producer Ruslan Tagirovto sit at the controls.
The fourth studio report is dedicated to additional guitar parts.
First of all, we come back to the petrifying solo played for track ‘Givit to Me’ by Vladimir Demyanov from the Blues Doctors band. We were deeply impressed to watch how his spontaneous ideas rapudly turned to the finished melody, explosive and still elaborate. Besides this, some tracks were equipped with acoustic guitar lines. For this task there was used the Taylor studio instrument.
