Pre-Production Update!

8 Dec

The video says it all…

If you don’t understand, you can try the subtitles 🙂

Subtitles:

Hey, This is Ian from Gargage and I am going to talk a little bit about what we’ve been doing in our Pre-Production sessions here at Jam Studios…

How has Pre-Production been?
Pre-Production is locking ourselves up in a room inside the studio and we play all the songs we’ve never played together or those that we need to practice. Basically we’ve been reinventing the songs that we already had, the old ones, applying our new musical abilities and making final versions that we can take over to Baltimore to appear on the CD.

Do you have any routine?
We’ve been rehearsing two hours, three times a week, usually Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays here at Jam Studios.

What is the goal behind going to the States to record?
What we want to achieve truly is to go to the States with good material, that the Producer be impressed, and obviously us be prepared to deliver all the material that we want to expose on our first CD and obviously create the best possible first impression…

Our First Recording Contract

21 Oct

The story of how we signed a contract to record our first album is one of coincidence and opportunity.

In today’s story, Ramon is the main character and Baltimore, Maryland is the setting.

During the time that Ramon went off to college in Maryland, he was determined to become involved in the US rock scene.  He had always showed interest in playing bass for a band in the US and this would be his chance to do so.  He got a hold of a local rising band in Maryland which was coincidently in need of a bass player before his departure, and before he (or any of us in that case) knew it, he was the bass player for Rescue the Hero (http://www.myspace.com/omgrescuethehero).

Rescue the Hero went on various tours playing small to medium sized venues around the area and Ramon obtained a taste of what touring with a band in the US was like.  He was adapting quickly, learning a great deal and making good friends in the process.  Among the closest of friends he made were the members of another local Pop-Rock band known as Victory by Revenge (http://www.myspace.com/victorybyrevenge).

Victory by Revenge eventually decided to record a cover version of Justin Beiber’s “One Time” in New Noise Recording Studios with producer Justin Day.  Ramon decided to tag along and so that is how Ramon met Justin Day.  Justin Day took a listen to some of our music and quickly became interested in the project and that’s when he decided he would like to produce our first album.

He sent me the contract which I signed live on the video below… 🙂
