(Yet) Another little private job…

Pip Burley has been back in the studio with another song…  This time, the vocalist was Aoife Kenny.

Pip and I built up the arrangement during April, and brought in the truly wonderful Emma McPhilemy to perform a sax part.  Subsequently, our rough bass line was replaced for us by towering bass talent Phil Mulford.

A good time was had by all, and Pip was very pleased with the resulting mix.

Two More Lisa Kleypas Projects

Starting this week, we’ve got 12 days booked in to record two Lisa Kleypas novels.  As ever, Roz Landor will be doing the narration.  Justin Hill will direct Married By Morning; Neil Rosser of Spools Out will direct Love In The Afternoon.  Both will be edited and mastered by Justin Hill.

These books are the fourth and fifth volumes of New York Times bestselling author Keypas’ popular ‘Hathaways’ series – historical romances centred around the Hathaway family among London’s aristocracy in the 19th century.  We recorded the first three volumes, Mine Till Midnight, Seduce Me At Sunrise and Tempt Me At Twilight at Temple Music earlier this year.

These recordings are for Deyan Audio.

Another little private job…

The Other Operation’s inaugural session took place on 11th and 12th August.  The live room wasn’t finished, the door didn’t shut properly, none of the fabric covers had been fitted, there was building work going on just down the road and the temperature was in the mid 30s – but all went swimmingly well.  Ian Hoare (Lettuceheads) gave a typically smooth performance singing a short piece composed by Pip Burley to lyrics by Bob Justice.  Apart from Ian, everything was virtual (Ivory for the piano, and multiple tracks of East West Hollywood Strings Gold)
