Sometimes I get calls to play in a recording studio. Sometimes it’s a symphony orchestra, concert band, commercial jingles, and sometimes its a surprise awaiting me as I walk into the studio. On one occasion, the large studio was completely empty except for a chair, music stand, headphones & a microphone. I placed the headphones on my head & listened to the pre-recorded tracks. A second pass was to try and fit my part to the existing tracks. The third pass was the actual take, but sometimes the 1st run-through was secretly recorded too, allowing for additional material at hand in the editing process. I played both oboe & English horn on this session – overdubbed, of course.
The music was contemporary religious music.
THESE CUTS DO NOT REFLECT MY RELIGIOUS VIEWS IN ANY WAY.
That being stated, here are some cuts from that day’s recording session.
