Live and Raw Recordings

    For the time being we have decided to use very simple, live and raw audio recordings to show you what we are up to. So, what is this "Live and Raw" stuff and why would we run with that?

    The Live and Raw thing is simple, really, really simple. We put a small recorder (Zoom Handy H1 pictured above) in the centre of the room and then we push the record button and start to play, when our song is done we push the record button again and it stops recording, we then post the recording and we are done!  Yep, no click track, no quantizing, no auto-tune, no balancing left and right, no mixing, no hocus pocus, and most importantly, no Kryptonite!  We use this simple method because it captures an unadulterated reality ... and let's face it, the world needs more of that LOL.  And, the flip side is when you end up falling down the deep dark Production and Mixing hole that leads you to the processed meat of music  :-0

    Now, that digital magic stuff is awesome and has a place and eventually we'll get some uber-processed and spifified (ya, I made up that word) music for you, in the meantime enjoy Live and Raw!
