Studio Report #1: Video and Gallery!

Although a few weeks late, it’s online the first Studio Report for the next full-length recordings (out in March 2012)!

Often someone asks us how we create our songs, so we take the opportunity to give you a little glimpse…

The first step is abpout composition and arrangement (the song writing began in early 2011!), that this year involving especially every member of the band, followed by a pre-recording, in order to have among the hands the audio material with which to understand if these sound good and if we appreciate their musicality, lyricism, etc…

Putting together the riffs, melodies that we often invent during a sound check or simply practicing with our instrument in the garage, is perhaps the most fun stage… Throughout the year these ideas are constantly being processed and the songs take shape. Completed and recorded the first “draft” of the album, it’s the time to produce it seriously: this is the most difficult step, because every choice will definitely have an impact on what comes out of your headphones and speakers! Keep in mind that the production and post-production commit usually from 1 to 2 months, it’s all come before that can last for years!

With pre-mixes in hand, we start with the production stage: each track will be re-recorded in studio with equipment and techniques that will give our CD the sound we are aiming!

It might seem an unusual procedure: this year we do not start from the classical drums, bass, guitar… but from the choirs!
The recordings take place the first week of December at the auditorium of the Choir “Le Due Valli” of Alzano Lombardo (BG) Italy, the same Choir that gave us the beautiful choral version of Rocce Nere, recorded on Damnati ad Metalla (2010). Also this year the choir will take its generous participation in the CD!

The next week is dedicated to Harp, Cittern and Hurdy-Gurdy at the Groove Studio of Bergamo, Italy. The acoustics of recording rooms can take beautifully the sound of these traditional (and capricious!) instruments.

A question arises… how does our delicate Silvia to carry around her big classical Camac, twice her size? We have not yet figured out…;)

Next episode? Gothenburg, Sweden!! And I promise we’ll be more synthetic… :D
