What a dull day! Winter is definitely well on the way and to add insult to that injury, the boiler at Auburn Jam packed in yesterday… brrr! Fortunately our amazing plumber-man, Brendon, is all over those pipes like a Scottish musician with a large lung capacity, so we shan’t be cold for long.
On that note of cold weather, Joe’s been mixing tracks for the lovely Emma Laws recently, one of which is entitled ‘Chilli Lights’, and you can listen to it below. Emma’s currently studying to be a vet at Bristol Uni, but over the summer has been recording her songwriting material at Auburn Jam. Joe’s had a lot of fun mixing these really original tracks. Emma’s got a unique vocal sound- very soft and ethereal, but combined with her interesting and fast-moving lyrics, it creates something quite edgy.
If you go to our ‘Listen’ page, you can hear a short excerpt of the first stage of recording for the track, as well as the finished product, so you can get an idea of what Joe does to produce- adding instrumentation, effects, dynamics, panning, textures… the list goes on….
Now I’m going to make myself a mug of hot chocolate to keep warm. Until next time, music lovers.
