I thought I’d give a small glimpse into what’s been going on at the 402 Arts Collective’s recording studio, 402 Recording. Over the summer, we reached out to a few bands and artists about recording a single, for free. Insane, right? The idea behind this gesture was to let artists of different genres and backgrounds get a feel for our unique space in the heart of Benson, no strings attached.
It was a blast working with all these bands and it definitely tested my multi-tasking skills. I loved working with different styles of music and recording processes. Some bands recorded all at once and some recorded their parts one at a time. Some used loud resonant drums and some used soft, towel-muffled drums. It was great! I also had the rare pleasure of playing drums on one of the songs, but my primary role was being the guy in the background translating and enhancing the artist’s ideas. That has always been my niche, even outside of music, and I try not to stray from that too much.
Over the next few weeks, we will be posting a new song from these singles on our recording studio’s Facebook page. If you haven’t already, “like” the page https://www.facebook.com/402recording and keep an eye out for our next posting. Here’s a few pictures from the sessions and a couple songs to get you started.
