Magnet Magazine just ran a piece on Perry Serpa‘s upcoming album, Wherefore Art Though? Songs Inspired By Nick Hornby’s Juliet, Naked.
I’m proud to say that I did a bit of work on it (some vocal recordings and… well… let’s just say “Mastering” for now).
Super proud to have played some small part in the creation of this record.
I recorded a few vocals at Seaside Lounge and did some “pre-mastering” at The Whelping Box. Perry and I both think it came out great… and so does Nick Hornby!
“Magnificent. I love every song, words and music. I’m happy to think that my book has somehow produced work this good. It works completely on its own terms, and sounds complete in a way that very few albums do anymore.”
A FICTIONAL ALBUM IS BROUGHT TO LIFE:
WHEREFORE ART THOU? SONGS INSPIRED BY NICK HORNBY’S JULIET, NAKED
Album Features Contributions From Friends, Laura Cantrell, Scott McCaughey,
Aja Warren, Edward Rodgers and Don Piper, Among Others
LISTEN TO THE FIRST SINGLE:
I’m working on a mastering project today. Did a little more fine tuning of the room and I think I’ve got that 50(ish)hz null under control. Anyway…
It’s a friend… It’s a secret… It’s his best work.
Here is a image of a compressor plug-in meant to convey the idea of mastering.
Scott Campbell laid down some drums for Lenny Zenith today at Seaside Lounge.
It’s a cover.
I tried out the new Warm Audio WA-47 as a mono room mic and so far… I’m impressed.
I was actually going to build one of these. But the WA47 uses mostly the same parts I was going to, plus, it’s done, with a warrantee, and cheaper by about 200 beans.
Cat added for scale.
Come sing into it (the mic, not the cat).
