For a week in February 2016 we visited Shanghai and had 4 concerts in different environments. in one way it was hard to understand each other as it’s not that common people talk English there. But in another way, and more important way, we could easily understand each other by the music. Exciting how music is an universal language, understandable by all people everywhere.
In March we will record a CD of 9 songs on location in Kampala, Uganda. It is the second CD we record in Uganda, last was 2013. We are now working with the arrangements of the songs and making music tracks to be used when recording vocals (plus piano on two songs). As last time we will make a simple project studio out of a hotel room for a week. Studio environment is challenging when tracking vocals but it is still far away from this kind of recordings when one must find creative solutions for any problem not normally appear when recording vocals in a studio – and thats an art we like, the art of recording.
To record vocals in a hotel room is challenging, not at least with traffic noise that mattresses on the wall won’t eject with a regular studio condenser microphone. Therefor we will try out the new Ehrlund D microphone for lead vocals. For choir we use an Ehrlund M Microphone, all hooked up to a portable sound card with bused power supply for the condenser microphone when the electrical power is not stable but frequently goes down in the heart of Africa and a laptop computer. It will then be brought back to our production studio in Stockholm, Sweden for editing, mixing and mastering during spring time.
