New Video: In the Center

From Dream Analog
An AAA recording: recorded + mixed + mastered analog.

LYRICS

When you find out you’re mistaken
when the road your on takes a turn
Just remember
every road
eventually must bend

In the subtle underpinnings
of the life you thought you were leading
there’s a core of believing you must maintain
through the change

There’s a crystal shining vision in the center
if you’re willing
in the center

In dreams you’ve had whisperings
pieces of puzzle falling down
on the table before you
but you’re missing one more sound

The truth in perpetual motion
revealing as it goes
what to give attention
and what you best ignore

There’s a crystal shining vision in the center
if you’re willing
in the center
There’s a crystal shining vision in the center
if you’re willing
in the center

you can get there
you can get there
you can get there
you can get there
In The Center

New Single Just Released: In The Center

We just released another single off our new album Dream Analog.

Lyrics are here 

By staying in the center you can weather this crazy situation in the best possible way. Remember you are a source of strength for yourself and others. Keep your frequency up and out of the lower level chaos as best you can.  This time of isolation can be a good thing. A time to reconnect fully with ourselves in a very deep way and remember who we are.  And even more than that, a time to evolve like the caterpillar into a butterfly.  A time of internal revolution/evolution.

Our new record, Dream Analog, will be released later this month. It was Recorded, Mixed and Mastered Analog to relay the utmost feeling possible.

—As luck would have it we found a time machine and over the next year created an Analog Recording Studio in our home. All my previous albums were recorded digitally.When I finally heard my voice played back on tape for the first time, I got tears in my eyes. It was significantly better. I had never heard my voice recorded in a way that could reflect it back so thoroughly. Until then I didn’t know what was missing in the sound. I knew I was on the right track.

Recorded Analog + Mixed Analog + Mastered Analog for 180 Gram Vinyl

Analog recording allows the messages in the songs to be more completely and clearly delivered. It has natural harmonic overtones and a warm tonal resonance. This resonance is missing in digital recordings as the recording process is to take samples and string them together. The space in-between the samples is missing. This creates square waves instead of sine waves leaving out dimensions you might want to feel and know about.

Over the next two years we carefully recorded these beautiful songs to analog tape.

The final lead vocals, acoustic guitar, bass, and drums were recorded live on a 1″ 16 track tape machine using tube and solid state gear. As we recorded live we were able to deeply connect as we played and magic happened. We later added overdubs of keyboard, horns, percussion, and background vocals.

This album is recorded at A=432 Hz tuning instead of the “standard” A=440 Hz. 432 Hz tuning is known as Pythagorean tuning. It is based on perfect 5th ratios. This tuning is in harmony with Nature. To me it feels better.

In September 2019 we headed to Northern California to mix at Laughing Tiger Studio. The following month, mastering legend Bernie Grundman completed the process by adding his mystical final touches.

New Album,Dream Analog, Mixed at Laughing Tiger Studios

Long Live Analog!

Brian D. Hardin, Teri Hitt, Ari Rios (owner Laughing Tiger Studios)

We had a great time mixing at Laughing Tiger Studios in San Rafael, CA just North of San Francisco.
Producer, Brian D. Hardin, was in his element mixing on a SSL console. It was great to experience it. The resulting sound, to me, is so much more alive than anything created in the box (computer). The sonic messages come through loud and clear.

 

 

Magic happened.

On our way there we went to the Sequoias to hug some trees and feel their quiet strength. The simple beauty of nature engulfs you and gently reminds you that there is so so much more to life than striving for this or that. Reality is more than meets the eye. We must FEEL to access the higher realms.

The biggest Sequoia  there is named General Sherman but we agreed to call it Mother Tree instead. While there we shot video for one of the songs on the album, Mother Earth.

We also shot video for another song, In The Center, at a river there. The river was a powerful presence that flowed all around me as I stood on some rocks. There were tons of dragonflies about. The sound of rushing water is good for the soul. I was happy I did not fall in!  Ha ha ha 🙂

The album was recorded analog and now is mixed analog. Soon to be mastered for vinyl (and CDs and maybe cassettes. Ya I said cassettes people!…. ha ha ha). Dream Analog will be released April 2020.

My hope is that it will feed you and inspire you to connect within and grow, to create and share your special gifts with the world. We need you. Blessings to you all.

Tape heads relapped…

Next step alignment and frequency calibration

There’s a lot to this recording analog process. Slow, but like a turtle we are getting to the finish line. Can’t wait to share the new songs. Wishing you all the best in your own creative projects. Keep creating!
