My brother Andrew is doing a project for a term paper for school which is a progressive rock interpretation of the greek myth of Phaethon. The music is TERRIFFIC!!! I'm playing bass. He lives 75 miles away. He sent me the demos on CD, and has sent me gneeral MIDI files. I'm recording the bass tracks using Cakewalk Home Studio 9 and I'm going to mail CDs of my bundle files down to him. I am having such a great time with this!!!!! My bass is recording into a simple Nvidia sound card, I'm going through an old dbx 166 rack mount compressor, then straight into the sound card. The songs are ridiculously complex, there's no way in a million years I could ever play them live, I'm taking the "Seargent Pepper" approach: the recording is my performance. There are no vocals (though I know what they will sound like because I've got Andy's demos). The guitars are crappy GM guitars from GM, but Andy's going to have a shredding friend record real guitar parts, probably with a Pod or something. Andy's a very multitalented musician, a great songwriter, keyboardist, a fine bassist (I believe bass is the instrument on which he's most accomplished professionally), and a drummer. He's going to record his drums. I will keep talkbass informed when the project is done, surely he'll make a CD.
