The Recording Sessions

A touch of exasperation, all normal in a recording session

The process of recording is laborious, even harsh. There is always a fear that you just did not get it, did not get a “take” that presents the music in a living, exciting yet clean performance. Even though editing is a simple affair and a wrong note can be eliminated, an exciting performance cannot be conjured up by even the latest technology. “Letting go” or playing with spontaneous flair into a microphone isn’t natural. It may be similar to making love for a camera. #
