VANHAINKOTI - Recording Diary 009
I've been doing a little bit of recording and editing on the songs almost every morning with a cup of coffee and weird mind. I've noticed that mornings are the best, you are still half sleep but you have no trouble of recording hours of complete ring mod noise and then cut it down in to 3 minutes. Morning fun time.
I really can't remember what I have done to the songs... I've been adding stuff there, taking stuff out from there and so on... Overall everything is coming along nicely and I think every song basis that I started will end up released in one form or another. I'm pretty excited about these new songs, because I've spent a lot of time with them and I've been doing them with a patience, though it may not seem so when you hear them, but that's the beauty of it. That fucking horrible sound that annoys your guts took me about 3 hours to make and 6 hours to think about it at work which isn't related to music in any way possible, except it pays the bills of the artist in question.
Anyways... I can't wait to get them ready and out there! Still haven't decided what will the format be... I love long albums... but then again ep format would be great to try out and also because I have 5 covers ready and hidden in a secret place.
I highly recommend to record guitar completely drunk for 5-8minutes, warp it into 25 minutes and sample that shit over the ambient piece you had waiting for the right sound. Worked beautifully. Dead Man soundtrack is also one the best soundtracks ever made. The atmosphere in that album is beautiful. Sometimes I try to capture that kind of feeling. That feeling of loneliness and beauty.
Man, don't you just love the internets!
