NEMO 032
year: 2009

project coordinator:Nick Robinson
mastering: Nick Robinson
artwork:Nick Robinson

The inspiration for this project was to place some restraints on composition 4 tracks, 4 instruments from a related musical family, 4 minutes long. I wanted to encourage music with perhaps a stronger emphasis on melody and harmony than on the textural approach of some CT projects.

Each part recorded onto one track of my Boss microBR recorder using the inbuilt microphone. 4 parts downloaded into 'Reaper' DAW, where editing was carried out, including correction of some timing mistakes, and creatively changing the timing of certain parts. Some simple effects were applied across the master buss (noise reduction, touch of EQ to remove some midrange, a hint of reverb and the meerest sniff of compression).

I found this project really liberating, it was actually great having to be restricted to 4 parts, and not having to succumb to the usual temptations of adding 'just a little bit more tambourine in section b of the chorus' syndrome.

  Sweet pretty tune :-) The sound is very good for a live recording with buil-in mics. I wasn't expected the MicroBR could do this.
