a song in 5/4. four acoustic guitar tracks, bass guitar, drums, and three vocals. tracked and mixed in Nuendo using both Steinberg CI2 and Presonus FireStudio converters.
i used a guitar tuning borrowed from Dashboard Confessional for the two main guitars, and E standard for the other two. 5-string bass in standard tuning.
i used an AKG C414 for vocals and guitars. drums were mic'ed with a Shure Beta 52A, SM57, Unidyne III 545SD, AKG C414, a dbx RTA mic, and an Audix Fusion drum mic pack. bass was DI into an amp modeler VST. the Rhodes patch at the end was ReWired via Reason into Nuendo.
the main vocals and main guitars were tracked last year in my dining room in Tesuque, New Mexico. everything else was done at my new place in Santa Fe (La Cienega). my bedroom to be exact. oh yes. magic happened.
sense. the last to hear the sigh
a night to see the fine. release
ascend to thee, the fight forgone
wrought away, the clasp, the fray
entrenched, the fall, of less than me
tomorrow the trees.
i've missed again, a slight mistake
in time we'll see, we'll see.
feel this land. across, alone
the last, the lost, parade in hell
rush the forced, obscure, foretold
intent as she. the light, the free
same mistake, same mistake.
released April 15, 2013

tracked and mixed by me.
