A relaxing time with Jessica Porter

Just completed the last of three really fun sessions with silver-tongued Canadian actress Jessica Porter – who’s also a certified hypnotherapist.

We’ve been recording meditations for the Sleep Wave podcast series, designed to help you relax and get a good night’s rest.  Fascinating stuff requiring close attention and concentration to deal with very quiet, veeeeery sloooow, readings…  Loved it.

(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.

Another little private job…

Landen Park Studio’s inaugural session was performed by Ian Hoare and 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)
