If you would like a studio quality recording of the album
on CD complete with proper sleeve notes then take a
visit to the shop.
The entire project took 2 days from initial concept to
finished product. Most of the guitar parts were recorded live in studio
as single takes. In the case of the title track (Aftermath), this was
recorded as a live rhythm track and then immediately played back while
a lead track was recorded also as a single take.
The EP also marks my first collaboration with my son, Peter.
The piece we recorded together, QuarTrack, was actually the longest track
prior to editing. Interestingly, the track owes more to mathematical calculation
than anything else.
Guitars: A collection of Paul Reed Smith
and Yamaha electrics.
Effects: Line 6 to the rescue.
Recording Software: Cool Edit.
Thank You Kindly
Beyond a doubt this project would not have happened without
the very cool generosity of Dave Manser.
Here Ya Go
Something completely different and off you go.
