Yeah, so it’s, um, been a while. I’ve been quite busy these past few months – lent, Easter, retreat, conference, weddings, ordinations, and, of course, recording!
(Oh, and I have a brother who is now engaged. Congratulations, Danny and Becca!)
Yeah, a fair bit has been going on lately. :-)
Here are the recordings that I’ve been working on the past while.
These recordings were made with my two, homemade, large diaphragm electret condenser microphones. I placed them inside the piano at the church (11′ Petrov), and tried to orient them to they’d get a decent stereo image. The disadvantage to close miking with a piano is that it tends to pick up unwanted artifacts from the strings. But the overall result is pretty pleasing, I think! (please forgive my mistakes…)
Recordings made over the Easter holiday
I went to Lloydminster for a few days during the Easter octave, and David & I recorded a few tracks. They are a work in progress, but one of them is sounding fairly polished. It just needs some singing, I think! I’ve dubbed it “Mirror of Eternity” after a quote from St. Clare… and because in one version of the tune, my niece Claire is in the song. :-)
The CBC used to have a catchy opening tune for their “CFL on CBC” broadcasts back in the late 1980s / early 1990s. Here is my take on the theme. Note the cheesy 80s-ish sounds. :-)
And… that’s all for now! Enjoy!
