Studio Report No. 13

Category : Hasse's Blog
Last week I finished the vocals and we're now lifting in the solos and the percussion and preparing for the mix. Since my voice will be the only one you'll hear on the album, it's been very important to me to use it in as many different ways as possible, so that it won't get "static". It's the same with the harmonies. I've been very keen to find the "right" expression and sound to those as well. Even though I've mostly made all the vocals in the morning, starting at 9.00 o clock and as most of the musicians I know of, I function better in the evenings, I'm quite happy with the result. Of course it can always be better, but at some point you have to draw the line. One thing I've tried more than ever before is to "be" the part I'm singing. That means, you'll probably gonna hear me in ways you've never heard before. More dramatic, softer, rougher, cleaner and more aggressive, depending what the music and the lyrics requires.

Musically, now that almost everything is in place, I think I dare say that my idea about the dynamics really works out fine. Every song, every part, was written back home on my acoustic guitar. I've had the arrangements in my head and the key element in the writing, rehearsing and the recording process has been "CONTRASTS", dynamically speaking that is. Compared to The Flower Kings, where we very often use long "ramps" to slowly build from nothing to a big crescendo, HFMC goes from nothing to everything in just a second, which in my ears sounds both very dramatic and effective. As you probably understand, we don't use it all the time, still the "CONTRASTS" are a vital part of the music of HFMC. Next up on the agenda before the mix, will be Petrus and me outdoors, recording some sounds from the ordinary life to put in the music. Right now, I hope the ordinary lives of all you people out there are just as great, even though it's a monday. Love you all!!!
