The 2012 Drum Recording Marathon finally over

The 2012 Drum Recording Marathon, which I was fortunate to be able to undertake in a friend's studio, is finally over. I say "finally" because I'm sick and tired of recording drums for once in my life. I never thought the day would come when I'd say such a thing, because obviously it's pretty awesome if you have unlimited access to a fine collection of fancy mikes and studio equipment to record live drums free of charge by yourself any time you want. However, during the last three months or so I've recorded drums for 5 new Second Chance Blown tracks, 5 Pudding Fields tracks (2 new songs and 3 "remakes"), 5 tracks for my ongoing collaboration with Vojko Aleksič, 12 old Cynicism Management tracks for a potential future re-release of our debut album Tit, and, last but certainly not least, 15 new Cynicism Management tracks for the upcoming EP and full-length album, which are already in the works. So altogether that makes... what... 42 tracks! Nice, a meaningful number ;)

Anyway, I'm not posting this info here in order to brag (at least not too much, though I am indeed very happy with the results of the extended recording session... :)) It's just a little "note to self", as this blog is a neat way to keep tabs on work-in-progress projects, timelines and such things... And I can also post pictures to remember places by! Because on Saturday I packed up my drums and the rest of my equipment and moved out of our studio / band practice room in Izola. I started wrapping things up and tying up the loose ends well ahead of my planned permanent relocation to Berlin in October, and this was one of those slightly unpleasant and regrettable things I had to do...

  2. The great thing about taking everything online is that us
    OSDs can now compete against the 'big guys' to get the
    sessions. In fact, when someone searches online for some
    drum tracks, the folks who win are rarely the players you
    will have heard of. They are drummers who have learnt about
    Google advertising, building websites and making YouTube
    videos to promote their playing rather than guys who have
    played big gigs with established artists.

  3. By the help of online session drums,"I just want to say
    that being a musician for 15 years and having the honor
    of working with some of the most talented and amazing musicians
    it has been honor to share ideas and write with Will.
