Experimenting in Berlin

At the invitation of longtime friend and colleague Peter Schmidt I am on my way to Berlin for a weekend of preproduction experimenting in the wonderful Teldex Studio. We are working on developing songs of Nora Grisu, in a team of 4 guys and her. I have the DarkTime and Tinysizer with me, and have bought a new module from SchneiderLaden for the occasion - Make Noise Phonogene. Excited.

Best,
Gareth

Polly Scattergood at Madame JoJos

Wonderful to be at Madame JoJos with lots of friends and colleagues to support and admire Polly at her London gig. Enjoying a dynamic build to the set and Polly's sparkly jacket. Also it is really interesting to hear new versions of songs from the last album (re)interpreted by Polly and Glenn. I am touched and hope Polly feels our love. Made a few photographs which I will post later.

I opened the TinySizer

Dictation vs Typing

I am finding that when using Dragon Express to express my thoughts, there is a real difference in the result when I speak to the computer or when I type on the keyboard. Not only is there a different quality to the way that I express the idea, but also, beyond that, the ideas themselves are different. Perhaps ideas is too grand a word. The e-mails, the communications, the notions are genuinely different. This is deep. Speaking, for me, is a much more natural process (and one that dates from much earlier in my life) and typing. It has become clear to me through the use of Dragon Express dictation that I express myself better by speaking.

David's Lyre in the Pool

Great session with Paul in the Pool Studio (Thanks to Miloco) yesterday recording the songs that he has been performing live. Just Vocal and Electric Guitar. A real session with filming (videoing?) too. Coming your way soon we hope.

Die menschliche Seite der Plattenproduktion

I enjoyed a lengthy Skype interview with Lilian Franke on Skype last week. We did the interview in English but she has translated to German and uploaded to TrueTrash (in German) - “Die menschliche Seite der Plattenproduktion”
