The Bridge 90.9 series – Making the Band

If you’ve been here before, you might notice a new menu item called About the Home Studio. This came about because my friend Michelle Bacon (drums for Chris Meck & the Guilty Birds, bass for The Philistines), who works for The Bridge, has been doing a series of informational articles called Making the Band. This week’s installation is about recording your band’s demos as part of the process of putting together a successful music project.

Michelle asked me for comments from the perspective of a home studio owner who takes on outside projects, and I was happy to oblige. As usual, I got into it and wrote far more than she could use. Also as usual, I hate to waste anything, so I’m posting my comments in full on that page, because I think potential clients might like to know how I view the recording process. In any case, Michelle’s article is a good read, with lots of insights from some of the best engineers, producers, and studios in Kansas City.

Victor & Penny – So Nice

by patt 0 Comments

I got a chance to work with someĀ old friends a couple years ago. They did the soundtrack for this video at my studio, and I just ran into it on YouTube again. If you haven’t seen Victor & Penny before, be sure and check them out. They tour a lot and just might be coming to your town. I’m going to add a video section to the site soon, but in the meantime I’ll just leave this here.

Some changes, finally

After several years of neglect, I am starting to make my site up to date. In the tradition of plumbers who have leaky faucets at home, I’ve been busy on other people’s sites.

You may see some strange, dumb, odd, appealing or otherwise design versions coming up, as I try some different things. Soon (well, I hope soon), you’ll see an attractive site that translates well to different platforms, which will quickly tell you whatever you need to know about my work.
