This was the view that met me when I left the studio at 5am this morning (Friday). I had intended to try to sleep, but decided it wasn’t worth it and that I would stay up with my brother who was still putting music on some of the tracks.
My good intentions were delayed by my body demanding a power nap – one minute I was looking at the laptop, next minute I was waking up 🙂
It was a looooooooooong day yesterday, but it was really cool, touching, and humbling to see how both Bishop and my brother put in hours of work, and are preparing to put in even more when they begin mixing the tracks – Oh Yeah, we have done all five!
I also need to shout out to Doug who was in the studio till 2am Wednesday night/Thursday morning laying down the bass.
Sidenote: The rest of this post is a day out due to sleep deprivation 🙂 and having to get back home and straight into some meetings yesterday (Fri 17th)
So how did it all end?
My brother didn’t get any sleep, I had half an hour, – our combined total of sleep can’t have been more than 10 hours – Bishop and G began mixing the tracks at around 8am, and we jumped into the car at around 10.30am in order to get back for planned appointments. – Needless to say, the stereo was blaring on the way back, and I am thankful to God that we got back safely!
Some mixing still needs to be done, so a trip back up to Wales may happen later today – I love my brother!
Hope you’ve enjoyed hearing about some of my showreel experience, look out for some samples of the tracks once they are mixed!
