I have been checking my readership stats recently on this blog and it’s rather pleasantly surprising to see that this blog has reached to those far away from where I come from. To these readers, I extend my deep appreciation. Please feel free to leave a comment or two on any of the posts. A Question or an opinion is highly appreciated.
With that said, I am pleased to update you guys that drum recording sessions for The Black Monolith album is going well. We used TNT recording studio down at Peace Centre on Prinsep Street, SIngapore. That studio has a slightly over 20 year history run by a gentleman who goes by the nickname, “Ah Boy”. I wished I knew his actual name…
In my first session for this album which was booked yesterday from 10am to 2pm, we managed to lay down 5 drum tracks within the span of 2 and a half hours including settting up the drums, tuning, and getting levels. This has reinforced in me the importance of going into the studio TOTALLY prepared. Studio time costs alot of money, and the people who are hired to do recording sessions on a regular basis are those who can learn the songs quickly, quickly figure out a part that fits the song, and has enough energy and focus to deliver the take as quickly as possible.
I look forward to the next recording session next Thursday to record 4 remaining tracks for the album.
