08:40 am - Doing what I love

I've been having a wonderful week. quadrivium has been here at Mystic Fig Studios since Saturday night, so we can work on keyboards and vocals for the seanan_mcguire album I'm producing. By a fortunate confluence of calendars, Seanan's Chimes at Midnight book release party was on Saturday, so Mary got to experience the madness and ecstasy of the Traveling Snake Handling Show, along with Paul Kwinn and Beckett Gladney. The party was great, and we had a nice quiet dinner with Paul, Beckett and Mary afterward.

We got to serious work on Sunday, and by the end of the day Tuesday had all but one keyboard part done. Tuesday afternoon, Seanan came by to record one remaining scratch vocal, so we could get the final keyboard part down.

Working on recording with talented people is one of my favorite things, and Mary has brought the album to whole new level. We started working on harmony vocals yesterday, of course with Maya. The rest of this week we'll continue on with vocals.

03:47 pm - Wherein Jeff natters on about recording

I was recently invited by solarbird to do a guest post on her blog about DIY recording. I choose room acoustics and treatments as my subject, mainly because that's one area where I have built some of my own gear. The post can be found here.

05:08 pm - Maya Surgery

I'm sitting in the waiting room at Good Samaritan hospital. Maya had her left hip replaced today. The surgeon told me it went as well as possible, and she is sure Maya will have an excellent recovery. We have a long period of convalescence in front of us, but she should be better than new in a few months.

Everybody wants to make a demo. What can you do with what
you've got? If that won't do - and it probably won't - what
do you really need to create a good demo? How little can
you get away with; or, if you have even a small budget,
what can you do to turn a spare bedroom into decent
recording space? Hardware and software solutions are
discussed.
Jeff Bohnhoff (M), Betsy Tinney, Tony Fabris, Alexander James Adams, SJTucker

Sat 16:00 - 17:00, Home Recording II (Workshop), A16 (RSCC)
Everybody wants to make a demo. Okay, you have some
equipment. Now what do you do with it? How do you set it
up; how do you use it to capture or create the best sounds
you can? If you didn't make the first hour; that's okay,
come anyway. Take your show on the road -- What's it take
to put together a good starter sound system for performing,
as they say, "out," in front of the public? What's it take
to run such a system, and how can you record your live
performances cheaply yet well enough to share? Come listen
to our panel of sound techs and performers talk about their
setups.
Jeff Bohnhoff (M), Betsy Tinney, Tony Fabris, Alexander James Adams, SJ Tucker


Hope to see many of you at the con!

10:11 am - Parody video for We Are the Cubs Fans

I posted a video for We Are the Cubs Fans to Youtube yesterday. Normally I can only do videos where I have video clips to match the song, which restricts me to media related material. It occurred to me last weekend I could do a Ken Burns Baseball style photo slideshow for this one.
