And Through The Wires
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Aug 2, 2012
Trey Gunn has been preparing for his appearance as part of the Security Project alongside Peter Gabriel alumni Jerry Marrotta and Last Fast. Writing on his Facebook page, Trey notes. "Worked through a gear-related anxiety attack today. For the last several years, I have gone completely digital with my setup (Ableton Live with plugins.) But for The Security Project I wanted to get my bass side happening purely analogue and bypass the computer entirely.


I had also been experimenting with the top (guitar) side being done only with analogue pedals and thought I could pull that off until last night. My pedal board was a shambles and I was trying to squeeze as many pedal as possible on it so that I could ditch the computer. But seeing the computer coming back into the system in order to pull off the guitar sounds meant I was going to end up having to bring even more gear than I had room for -- pedalboard full of pedals for the analogue bass, plus all the digital interfacing to make the laptop run right.

THEN...today, I thought "screw it", if I'm bringing the laptop I might as well revert to my completely digital system and get rid all the pedals. At least I know I will sound great -- both bass and guitar side.


Meanwhile, I am still trying to get a grip on the all the material. This stuff is far more unusual that I had even thought. Not to mention learning extra guitar parts and backing vocals.


But, thankfully, I have had a great afternoon and have tweaked out the analogue pedals again and the computer will stay off the stage. Plus I learned three more old tunes (1st and 2nd disc) and I am feeling more ready.


Full panic averted!


Now I can spend most of tomorrow actually building the pedal board... off to band rehearsals for Sunday."

Lose Lose Situation For Artists
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Jul 30, 2012
According to this article on TorrentFreak it seems the big labels won't be funneling any cash gained as a result of the legal award against Pirate Bay in the direction of the artists. Meanwhile, CMU  reports that UMG are preparing for what it calls a 'radical divestment' to ensure the deal for EMI goes through. You can read Simon Raymonde of the Bella Union label's take on the UMG /EMI takeover here, as well as Panegyric's Declan Colgan's equally forthright views on why the deal will be bad outcome for artists.
