DAY ONE: DRUMS
Today we rounded up a DW Collector's Series Drum Kit and Drummer Cole Paramore hit 8 Drum Takes! Check out this video to watch him track a song off the album live.
I figured now would be as good a time as ever to introduce myself. My name is Cole Paramore and I'll be drumming on/mixing/helping produce the album. I worked on the video and recording for ME last Summer and since then I've been waiting to record these songs that I've been writing parts for and playing live for years. I'll make sure to post here as much as I can with media and info on how everything is going. If anyone is interested in seeing something specific or wondering how something is done, feel free to ask Find me on Facebook, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll let you know.
I also wanted to make sure everyone reading this knows how much I appreciate whatever interest you've shown in this band. It's not the easiest thing to support independent artists and even a gesture like sharing what we're up to is a big deal to me, so thank you.
Pulling up in Anchorage after the Yukon (more on that later) is like waking up from a dream. We have spent the first few days doing "pre-production".
This is the time that we plan out objectively what "sounds" we need to record. It's a lot different than a live show. We have to ask: Inside any given song, what is the melody comprised of? What instrument plays it best? Through what amplifier? What Drums?
Essentially we need to compile a check-list of objectives to accomplish that way we are assured to have captured everything we need at the end of the week.
We're sleeping, eating, and living in this studio, and we will begin making music in the morning! Strand Of Oaks, out of Philadelphia, is doing a live show in the studio tonight (check them out HERE).
Tomorrow we go on the record, so looking forward to sharing all of this with y'all! -HB
