This week I was able to work with some more really talented musicians! Jason and I were able to have violinist Vilme Joselin and cellist Luke Borkowski come in and record string parts for a few songs on the album. Before the session, Jason and I got together last week and arranged all of the parts alongside our friend and talented musician, Alex Frondelli. The process was incredibly fulfilling because up until this point I’ve never arranged or recorded string parts for my own music. Vilme and Luke played on a few sections of “Let You Go,” “Caught Up,” and “Plans.” We had them record different parts that we wrote with the use of different microphones and their placement. By doing this it helped create the effect of an orchestra in the room, as opposed to just two instruments. I’m super stoked to hear how the strings turn out once they are mixed properly into all of the tracks. We are coming closer and closer to finishing the entire record and I couldn’t be happier! Here’s a video of that session.
