When you recorded your melodica do you mic it as close as possible? Also have you put it thru melodyne to correct some of the slightly out of tune keys. Lastly, is there any melodica on the new album. Thanks :0)
1. Yeah I record quite close because i want to capture the key-clicks. It can sound quite 'nasal' if you don't get close to the mic.
2. My old Melodica needed Autotune because it was so far out of tune, but I bought a new one just before 'Mir' and it is close enough for me. I quite like the 'analogue' tuning.
Hello, I hope you're okay with my not really asking anything but really just sending you love...if not, stopping read now...
Recently I've decided that you're my current favorite musician and I really cannot stop listening to all of your music. Your old stuff, your newer stuff, all of it tickles my brain in the most satisfying way. I was somehow able to arrange all the necessary components to be able to attend your show with Tipper, Lusine, Evac, Ion Driver, Quixotic, Android Jones, Alex and Allyson Grey and Jonathan Singer on May 16th (goddamn that fucking line-up tho) and I must say that I've never been more excited for an event in my entire life.
There really wasn't a clear intention in me writing this right now. I'm avoiding homework and was just watching an interview of you from 2012 and I keep falling in love with your words. Thank you for creating some of the most beautiful sounds I've ever heard, you are inspiring to me as a musician and a human...
I love you. - Erin Dillon
How do you go about copywriting your tracks? Years ago people used to say to mail a copy to yourself. What is the correct procedure? BTW, can't wait for the new release.
