I didn’t manage to get anything from the session yesterday, but I thought I’d save it since I knew that Hugh was coming in to do his sax stuff today which was always going to be fun. His part is for the song “Asylum”, and the middle section has a groove based instrument trade-off section, where the guitars, keys and drums all get a few bars to improvise. Since Hugh joined us for the last London show and let rip on his soprano sax we figured it’d be great to get him to do some stuff on the album too. Note that the original video was shot on my digital camera at a 90 degree angle, and rotating it has caused it to look a bit squashed :)
Tom’s part is from the song “The Lie” which turns into a keys / guitar duel on one of the mid sections. Hugo will be playing a harmony at the same speed over the top of this bit, and the end effect should be awesome.
So now all the guitars are done and dusted, Brett will spend tomorrow re-amping the guitars though some better cabs and checking over what’s already been done to make sure it’s all in order and nothing has been missed. Saturday is a day off and then the bass starts on Sunday.
