Some really great stuff so far!

I'm really proud of this Psychedelic tune I play drums on and also recorded/mixed. This is on one of my bands latest lp's on Hardly Art (Subpop).

We recorded onto a 16 track Tascam with absolutely NO outboard equipment and only a handful of microphones, the nicest one being an SM27. Everything was recorded in an unfinished shed behind my old house in Texas.

Our friend made this awesome collage video that fits perfectly with the tune.

I feel like I could really blow away this entire album because it was such a huge learning experience; however, I'm very proud of the entire thing.

Here's the tune. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxSNMK7muuE

Or for better quality. http://vimeo.com/18754793

Note: It is intentionally a bit "off". Heavily Zappa inspired.

Also very happy with this more soul driven turn from the same lp. Same two dudes. Same set up. The quality on youtube is kind of a bummer but here it is:

I did a pretty amazing session with these guys up at avatar. With Anthony Hamilton and Soulive.

Amazing, inspirational people nd performances. The songs of the civil rights movement. It was being filmed for a documentary, so presumably you will be able to see how I recorded them, all live, in studio A at avatar... sometime tis coming year I hope.

The blind boys are inspirational, and i am proud to have recorded them.


Really awesome!

A song (the only song) that was recorded AND had a video added to it one night at Waldo's on a Wed. night in Vero Beach, Fl. The band plays there every Wed and I recorded them a couple of times in the past. This is the time where I was recording and picked up the video recorder and walked away from the audio rig and videp taped while audio just kept on running. I took the audio mix and replaced the camera audio on the video tape with this as the result. I do, pretty much, only LIVE audio projects, even though I started with studio projects in the mid '70's.

Some other projects (and this project) may be found at my website: http://www.richardkingmedia.com/?page_id=47 All recordings at the site are LIVE recordings, which is what I enjoy doing best, rarther than studio recordings. There is, however, a picture at the website of the studio I worked at in the early '70's, along with a single recording from the '70's also (LIVE) that you might (should) know (maybe). Laughing

Here's a nice song I did a couple years back with Madeline, a rad singer/songwriter from Athens, Ga.

We just did this as a quick CDR for the artists to sell on tour, figuring I'd dump it to tape and give it a proper mastering job. if it ever got a proper release. I didn't hear about it for a while, and then suddenly Orange Twin was pressing up a 7". Would have liked to have had another shot at the mix, but oh well!

That's Phil Elverum (Tape Op #32) on wobbly guitar in the coda and Gus Franklin (Architecture in Helsinki) on the trombones.

The song was presented to me as simple piano ballad and I like that the arrangement took it to a grander scale without sacrificing intimacy or rough edges or the emotional core of the song.

My most favorite recording I've ever done is off an old album of mine.
It's got this interesting chord in it that I made up that came out of nowhere, a totally grooving bass line and it was all done analog and it sounds awesome!
Dig it.

Lose the snare from the kit, it's loose and rattling outside the mechanics of the track. The whole kit is strung up to hum real fast yet you're playing slow.

The whole sound of the song is fun, it feels like the closing song to a film where ugly people get married and live happily ever after... You know the sex is going to be ugly, the kids ugly too but the fun and happiness is going to be bountiful. I find your music calming and inspiring in a positive way. Have you ever though of having someone sing over it?
