Now Playing: Aquarela do Brasil
"Music is the space between the notes." (Claude Debussy)
Well, we did it. The sessions went very well, although we experienced few struggles with the technology (as one could expect). Nevertheless, we made up a decent deal of work, making some tracks even on one or two takes. I must honestly thank to the sound engineer which did really serious, highly ranked job with the both mastering and directing our music.
At first we were rehearsing /Sunday afternoon/. We did just a couple of pieces realizing we can go through without problems. Just a pleasure to work with real professionals. The takes themselves took place on Monday in Jamy Studio near Zdar. Then we worked on our tracks, consultation our sound and the performance direction with the engineer. He appeared as true professional suggesting often with the improvement of the strucutural or sound balance and kindly helping the singers with finding precise pitch. We worked with just few little breaks for the whole Monday, finalizing the session around midnight.
But the resulting fruit was quite satisfying. Me and Jakub went on Friday to join the mixing and mastering process (Linda was already back at home to please her Slovakian fans) and listened to the all tracks with grateful feeling of well-done job. We decide to put 16 tracks on CD (Funiculi was discarded since it didn't fit and we were not satisfied enough with that track, feeling her tender mezzo-soprano voice doesn't reach its greatest position among that piece). Anyway, some of the tracks (Valentine, Ouvre ton Coeur, Figaro...) were impressive without any doubts.
The CD will be released before 20th of February to be prepared for selling during the Tour. We will do few gigs even before that, but with different repertoire and another guest. I also will perform more solo pieces and work intensively on preparing my solo recitals.
