2nd song tutorial now available on Theatres in the Round YouTube channel or here on the media page.
The last 2 weeks have proven to be very fruitful nights of recording. We have solid base tracks for 2 more songs and pics to accompany them in the Photos section of the site. The next month will see a pause in recording as we begin rehearsals for our upcoming show on September 19 for Wake Smiles. We'll continue to post updates as they come up.
Well, another recording session has come and gone. We got a lot done but we are still working on the track that we started last week. There is a new section under photos for these recording sessions as well if you want to check out our hijinks. Tonight was certainly a strange one...
Not sure if I ever mentioned this, but the album 'Just Because I Held Your Hand' was actually supposed to be 2 EPs during the initial recording sessions. I even made up a couple of album cover ideas and I found them the other day so I figured I would share.
We have just posted a new Vlog discussing an album retrospective and some updates in the TITR and Street Corner Vagabonds camps. You can check it out on the media page or on Theatres in the Round's Youtube channel.
So yesterday was week 2 of the new album's recording process. I have been producer/engineer of every album I have ever put out and I like to think that I'm getting better at this as I go. With that said I'd like to give a little tutorial on how not to produce.
Andrew came over and we get a good solid 2 hours of recording done giving us a nice guitar/percussion track and 2 good vocal takes. Then we start messing around with pitch shifting and time changes. Start putting popular songs into the program and doing it with them as well. Hilarity ensues. Then I realize I forgot to hit save....
Thankfully my recording program auto-saves track backups and I was able to get everything back to normal so it was not a waste of an evening.
The Street Corner Vagabonds want to wish everyone a happy and safe holiday. As our gift, Andrew and I got together and recorded some of our favorite carols and will be releasing 1 a day for this entire week. The first one is available now on the Media page here or over at our YouTube channel. Hope you enjoy and come back tomorrow to see which one is next!
There is a new video available on TITR's YouTube page. It is a bit out of the ordinary, but hopefully you guys will find it enjoyable and educational.
After 2 years of writing and recording the new album from Theatres in the Round is now available. You can get to it from the discography page.
I have just uploaded the 6th and last behind-the-scenes video from the sessions for Somewhere Between Chaos & Order. Go to the discography page to see the release date now!
