about

DO YOU DREAM ANALOG?
Feelings, thoughts and words on the space/ time we are going through. Recorded the way music used to be made, Analog.
My heart to yours ~

RECORDED + MIXED AND MASTERED ANALOG
To me there's more music in the music because it was recorded analog.

ANALOG RECORDING MEANS RECORDED TO TAPE
The first time I heard my voice recorded and played back on our Tascam 16 track tape machine I got tears in my eyes. I had always felt that digital recordings were missing something but I wasn’t sure what. When I heard the tape I knew recording to tape was some of the best advice I ever got.

We found a time machine and over the course of a year year created a small analog recording studio in our apartment. The next several years we carefully recorded these beautiful songs to analog tape. The final lead vocals, acoustic guitar, bass, and drums were recorded live on a 1" 16 track tape machine using tube and solid state gear. Because we recorded live we were able to really connect as we played and sure enough magic happened. We later added overdubs of keyboard, horns, percussion, and background vocals. We mixed in Northern California at Laughing Tiger Studio. Mastering legend Bernie Grundman, completed the process by adding his mystical final touches.

ABOUT ANALOG RECORDING
Analog recording allows the messages in the songs to be more completely and clearly delivered. In my opinion analog recording reflects natural harmonic overtones and a warm tonal resonance you just can’t get in digital recording. This resonance is missing in digital recordings because the recording process is to take samples and string them together as opposed to recording the whole sound wave.

Recorded in A=432hz. Made with Love!

Track Name: Song of The Satellite
Morning sitting quietly
bring it on home
bring it on home
over and over again
till you make it home
call it your own

The Song of the Satellite

The Satellite

In the 2nd dream of the first heaven
book flew open to a page and
mystery surrounded everything

In the early days of the desert
you were standing by a mirage
of an oasis you created
to keep you warm
