Background

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.

Technical

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.
