Working on project Void, I should have learned about Parkinson’s law a long time ago. “work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion” What a wise man! This must be the title of our next album 🙂
Tonight Philippe and I edited the vocal parts of our mystery singer in the song “Make me whole”. The takes were recorded last monday and really put the icing on the cake. There are also spoken parts in the song that needed to be positioned just right. This proved to be a job for Philippe. He has a talent Read more about Timing, is everything[…]

Ok, in a 10 day break of snorkeling in Bonaire Read more about “I did it in December, but it felt like it was May”[…]
This week, Philippe did push the envelope. The vocals of “Long time Ago”, “A beautiful day” and “If Heaven” were recorded and that really completes these songs. There’s still a lot of work to do, but this phase of the project is fun. I can’t wait to hear the next tracks.
