2nd Leg of East Coast Tour Starts Tomorrow

This week sure has flown by … I have spent the majority of the last few hours getting ready to head out for the 2nd leg of the East Coast Tour. I am going to miss Le-Anne and the three boys over the next 13 days in New Brunswick while on tour with the band.

I was greeted home on Monday by this partially melted snow man built by Aaron and Liam …

Love the detail in the face …

We pulled the boys out of school (yes, it’s ok. to do that once in a while!) to spend more time together today … went out for breakfast at “Angel’s” one of our favorite local Guelph Diner’s … then we went to the Woodlawn Bowl to bowl a couple of games as a family … lot’s of fun. The afternoon was spent picking up a new banner for my product table, doing some office work, packing, etc … then just before supper (Le-Anne surprised me with an amazing roast beef dinner) the boys and I went for a short x-country ski to our local park. A really great day 🙂

Our flight leaves for Moncton once more at 8 a.m. tomorrow. May God bless the rest of this tour and may He have his hand upon each of our families. Until next time …  TD <><

Live Studio Tracking for a Canadian Tire Gig

We brought the band together last week to do some live off the floor studio tracking at ADS Media just outside of Hamilton. I have done a fair bit of recording for Ken Vandevrie, president of ADS Media on acoustic violin over the last few years. One of our first recordings together was Dan Macaulay’s “Captured Again” CD. ADS also did all the production on my 2006 “Flyingbow – Up Close” DVD Release.

On this session last week, however, we tracked a medley of 5 traditional Celtic songs that we will be performing live this Saturday at the Toronto Convention Center for an annual Canadian Tire Banquet. Ken needed a recording to give to a troupe of Celtic dancers who will be joining us for the Canadian Tire gig. Ken’s newly renovated studio is a one-stop media design and development company that delivers excellent, affordable work across three major disciplines: Audio, Video, and Design. Canadian Tire is one of his esteemed clients.

You can download the new Celtic Medley here for free! It was recorded live off the floor – has not been mixed or mastered so keep this in mind …

I really enjoy studio recording. It is great challenge. As I record, I am often asked to do a combination of playing by ear, reading charts and creating on the spot arrangements and multi tracking where I lay down multiple violin lines to create the feeling of a full orchestra. A great trick many producers do (on a budget) is lay down string lines from a keyboard using sampled strings, then add my real violin sound to the mix. This tricks the ear into thinking that the whole orchestral line is real.
