POI Guitar Sesssssh!

February 17, 2010 at 7:56 am (Music) (, , , , )

So I got the chance to work with Perception of Intent once again. This time we tracked guitars for a cover of Killswitch Engage’s Rose of Sharyn. For a change I was running the session in Studio 7. I also worked with Kollin Christopherson and Tyler Matlock as my Assistant Engineers. Joe Dragich and Avery Jacobs are the two guitarists of Perception of Intent. Anyways the session went fucking awesome and the band is stoked about the raw recordings. I am now in the process of editing and mixing the guitars and need to get the drum session for the full mix. We are still awaiting the decision of when we are going to record the bass. We plan on working on with the band more and expanding to more artists. I’m currently working on recording a Folk band within the next week or two. Stay in tune for that and videos of recording Perception of Intent!!!

Working with Perception of Intent

February 3, 2010 at 12:44 am (Music) (, , , , )

So just this past Saturday I had the privilege of working with a local Minneapolis/St. Paul band that goes by the name of Perception of Intent. They are a Metal band, influenced by bands such as Killswitch Engage, White Chapel, and such. We tracked drums for one of their originals “Threads of Humanity.” We also tracked drums for a cover of Rose of Sharyn by Killswitch Engage. The session was quite a party involving two recording artists, five engineers, a cameraman, and one bystander. Xander Moser took the roll of Engineer as the rest of us, Kollin Christopherson, Brett Schaan, Tyler Matlock, and myself, Austin Yoder, helped whenever needed with such things as mic placement, loading and unloading equipment, and other small tasks. Matt Jacbosen documented the session with his trusty camera. Since the session was going to be sent to Texas where vocals would be tracked, we weren’t involved with any editing, just a rough mix.┬áPerception of Intent’s most recent show was January 8th at Station 4 for the Slave to the Metal Music Festival.

Below is a video compilation of the session.
