This is a long overdue news update from the Sonic Cuisine.
Things have been crazy busy since the last February news feed so, there's a lot to talk about. A wide variety of musicians and musical styles have graced the faders in the last couple of months. I'm just putting the finishing mastering touches to "The New Lady Radnor Suite" album I recorded with Fiona Bennett in the wonderful British Grove Studio 1. One Fiona is obviously not enough for the Sonic Cuisine and we're wrapping up Fiona Howe's album " Mermaid's Work".
From two classical albums, I moved right into some cool rock 'n roll with Elliott Randall. We're working our way through the instrumentation for a very cool track indeed. It's an exciting track we rescued from a reel of 2" and it features an amazing singer ;-)
In the mean time my work with Mo Michael has been rolling along nicely and we have a full album's worth of material. The fab Gloria Nuti has been back with a couple of tracks and keeping that European vibe going, Italian fronted Delta Unit punk power house have an album on the boil too. A couple more mixes and a few vocals to go.
The last moth I've spent a lot of time in my favourite RAK studio 2, recording a very special album in three days and mixing it in two! I then went off to record a fab track with the lovely Debi Doss, record a world premier of a new musical written by Mike Reed and John Theakston and then straight back into RAK for another marathon with the amazingly talented Albert Man & His Band. We recorded 14 songs in three days. Old school man.
