Apart from composing custom music for media, I'm partnering with my friend Matthew L Fisher on a collaboration project called 'AEONAN Music'. Together we share our inspiration and compose tracks in various styles for licensing companies.
For our latest track 'Horizon' we recorded live drums, because we knew from the beginning that there was no alternative to live drums for this track. It was the only way to convey the impact and energy we needed.
For the recordings we set up a DW Eco-X with Mainl Byzance cymbals in a medium size hall, with the goal to capture the performance with as much room ambience as we could. Our mixing engineer did a fantastic job with that and delivered us an amazingly powerful and on-spot raw recording session. That allowed us to really incorporate 100% of the performance and room sound to our track layout, which we were really happy about. Our session player was the incredibly talented Josias Bock, who despite his young age expresses very strong confidence and attitude in his playing.
Do you want to know more about our recording gear and mixing technique? If you have any questions about it, feel free to leave me a message through the contact form!
The full track will be available on Soundcloud soon.
