On a previous post (CLICK HERE) i shared some infos about my very first recording !
Therese Brenet : Le Visionnaire
Very recently I was able to take back a lot of pictures from my "dead" Iphone (3! so it is quite old), and there were many that were made during this recording, and ... i never shared them on any social media.
But .... THE reason that gave me the will to do it , is to discover that the cd label shared on youtube a lot of tracks from this cd .
So before the funny pictures, i am sharing with you those audio files
Dans l'Or Vibrant du Désert , for piano and violin
Le Visionnaire for alto saxophone viola and piano
and my favorite : le Boustophédron for flute clarinet violin cello and piano
Now the pictures :
It was my first pro classical recording , so .... do not get mad after the almost naive photos or comments :)
Arrival to the Studio
|It was in banlieu , so .... far away from Paris !|
The outside was nice
and pretty big.
The studio was very well known in the 80's for some cult french bands
|The studio has everything necessary !|
|Preparing all the equipments|
|start to see how it looks like|
|micro are getting installed|
|Dear Paul supervising|
|Scores on the piano for the "very contemporary" piece of Brenet (Boustophedron)|
|last minute change|
|warming up the next piece|
|a pause, time to take coffee and some candies|
|we can see from the outisde it s wonderful concrete structure|
|a nice loby|
|and an even nicer listening room|
|the army of mic|
Now some pictures of the recording itself
|i was lucky to do it with my good childhood frend and excellent celist Marc Zorgnoti !|
|bye bye nice piano ....|
I really hope you liked those pictures and the samples , and that they will give you the desire to deep your knowledge about Brenet, a composer really to keep an eye on (even if next year she will turn 80!)
