Recorder Blues

from Recorder Blues E​.​P. by dantec3p



My neverending days ups and downs in the studio


Turn the lights on, open the window.
Get the room some fresh air before the musicians come.
You have an hour to prepare: Make them feel comfortable.

And when they play you wonder « what’s you’re doing there? »
When they fail in anger, you’d like to keep the take.
You think it’s wonders, you envy their gift.

There is the hot smell from that coffee you prepare.
You hear the computer booting once again.
The microphone stands need to be set.
You can’t be late, it must be perfect.

Because you know
If you’re not good, it could be awful what they make.

And when they play you wonder « what’s you’re doing there? »
You’d like to tell them it’s wonders they create!
But you don’t have the time. And you’re the one who says:
“No it’s not the one, we have to do it once again.”

Some of them are anxious, and need to be calmed down.
They are asking you, and you pretend you know.
Guide them inside their own universe
It's you reversed your feeling inferior.

Some may see through you and feel disappointed cause
You are not the artist but just the audience.
You don’t pretend to being anything else!
It’s what you are doing, you’re only recording.

Everyone has gone and left you all alone.
It’s time to burn the rom, to back- up what they’ve done.
There is still a fog, but no one is smoking.
Slowly, cause you’re done, unplug the microphones.

The mess to be tied- up will wait for tomorrow.
Cause it’s quiet at this moment and you’re listening alone
In the morning sun, through the monitoring,
The little that you’ve done: what you’ve been recording.

Ready for some acid-punk-triphop?!

After producing music for other artists for years I release my own music that's a mix of electronic and rock music, like you're somewhere between Bristol triphop and a hardtekno free-party in a French countryside. ... more
