Some short discussion prior the Recording Sessions at Aerophon-Studio, Ramsen.
Summer 2016: Some short discussion prior the recording sessions at Aerophon-Studio, Ramsen.
Character 1: Janne Wrigstedt, Finnish sound engineer.
Character 2: Aldo Betschart, Swiss musician.
JW: "So how many songs are you guys going to record?"
AB: "I would say five songs."
JW: "Five? Why don't you do a full album?"
AB: "Why?... Janne, are you kidding? We realeased an album last year!"
JW: "I know. But still..."
AB: "Obviously we don't have enough songs ready yet. And the other boys are keen to record, so ..."
JW: "Okay. No need to rush, Aldo. You should try to convince them to do a full album. It's none of my business, but if we ever get started with the whole process ... I mean, I believe that you guys would be better off with nine killers instead of five, don't you think?"
AB: "Perhaps. But let me tell you, Janne, it takes weeks if not months to write and play another four or five. I'm not fucking Bo Katzman. I don't make things up, not in a jiffy. No, the lines and melodies have to find me, you understand? And besides, the boys are keen to..."
JW: "...keen to record as soon as possible. I got you, man.
AB: "It's quality over quantity, right?"
JW: "We'll see ... Just let me know when you guys are ready, OK?"
AB: "Sure. And by the way: I'm already working on a new one. That would be song number six. I mean, if we manage to get that baby done right before we enter the studio."
JW: "Well, that's very nice of you, but also totally senseless. At that point the album still misses three hits.
AB: "Jesus! Your Finnishness is finishing me! Six is my last word. Take it or leave it."
JW: "Take it easy, Aldo. All I'm saying is that live could be even more beautiful."
End of discussion.
