Studio vlog #1 – Travelling & Settings
Studio report #1
Day 1 – Travelling
Our trip started on early sunday morning, Dec 1.
We left Borås for Landvetter Airport,
and boarded the plane right before ten.
Our flight change was in Frankfurt, were we had to wait 4 hours for the flight to Florence.
We arrived, safe and sound, in Florence/Italy around six in the evening.
All bags arrived as well, and everything had made it through the flight.
Our producer and sound engineer picked us up at the airport,
and gave us a ride to a fantastic little bed&breakfast.
We were treated just like family, were served coffee
and got all the help we needed with finding the train station and such.
Finished off the day with some italian pizza,
which, by the way, was awesome.
Got to bed a bit late, but it was so nice to stay some while downstairs,
where the B&B owners invited us for coffee, tea and some biscotti.
Day 2 – Drum rigging & setting sound
The day began with the drum rigs.
Jansson and Jonathan changed the drum heads to new ones,
the kit was rigged with microphones and tested for volumes.
The sound was set up, and we wrote the plan for the recordings.
We rode by train back to ‘our place’. Jansson went to bed right away,
and the rest of us went for another italian pizza, and later, a walk in the neighborhood.
Night ended quite early anyway, and we all got to get to bed and snore each other to sleep.
Day 3 – Recording drums
Had some breakfast when arriving at the studio.
The actual recordings began today, with Jansson´s drums.
Jansson got 4 songs recorded before lunch,
then we had some great pasta.
Continued with the recordings after a short break,
just to melt the pasta in our systems.
Kept going and recorded another 5 songs, with some coffee stops.
Jonathan (MathLab Recordingstudio) started editing the drums with 9 songs done.
More studio reports will be out in the end of the week.
