(co-op with my dad) blue sky

Me and dad spent a day figuring out how to use his zoom r8 portable studio, and recorded some guitar chords he had been jamming with. I added some bass and we sketched out a melody that dad quickly scribbled some lyrics for and we recorded his vocals.. alright, the demo was finished! Next we proceeded to make another version to explore some more functions of the r8, like the integrated drum machine. I realised I had brought my Elektron Digitone synth, and we dug out a midi keyboard from a closet to record some synth pads. Added a 12 string guitar part, and laborated with some live muting and mixing, which is the way you have to do it on the r8. The result is a possibly the first piece of music we ever collaborated on. Hopefully more to follow! smile

Gear used:
zoom r8 (recording/mixing and drums)
acoustic 6-string guitar
acoustic 12-string guitar
electric bass (“sigma”?)
elektron digitone (synth pads)
condenser mic

It's very nice, it could do with a little sugar for the left ear as you did the right.
