2cuban sandwich2007Tim: bass (2 tracks) Andy: guitar (Strat) (3 tracks), drum programming, acoustic guitar Jon: drum kit Recording started 8 Feb 2006 in mangobananas studio, Ithaca, NY, with Tim and Andy recording loops. Another quick jam with Tim (Feb 8, 2006) over a drum beat I programmed with the mouse using Ultrabeat synth. This has some cool effects and potential for layering -- I can hear a gravelly rap over this, some urban devolution and psychedelic descent. On July 2 (Jon jam 4) Jon overdubbed drums while I played strat doing some soloing. When mixing and arranging that I found an acoustic guitar part that I layed in for 8 or 10 measures as an alternate part. Recorded that on the Taylor with the usual 2 mic setup on July 5, 2007. Also, while I was walking though the song 2 bars at a time doing the drum comps, I heard goovy parts and I played around and recorded with clavinet (EVD6) and piano (EXS24). The piano part is becoming the vocal melody (or counter-melody) in my head. That got me to this final mix on July 12, 2007.2cymbal monkeysThe Andy Bandhttp://mangobananas.com/img/icons/cymbal_monkeys.jpg
