It’s been a busy few weeks over at the Starship Fusion Orchestra 2.
We’ve been busy recording some demo material and also found ourselves invited to play down in Brighton on Tuesday 9th October.
Initially we were looking at recording a few pieces at home just to see how it went and then, perhaps, booking into a studio to polish them.
As it happens Mr. Ben the Chief engineer managed to drag a good enough sound out of our primitve recording space so we are able to put the results up on the website. Check those out here.
I think a ‘proper’ recording is still on the cards for a single or such, especailly as we had some probs with the drum sound – it being a big kit in a small suburban room! The next attempt will be to record the drums on their own with just a guide track laid down to a click. (Previous attempts have been ‘live’ with everyone in the room, albeit on headphones.)
Ben and I are learning alot about miking up drums!
The gig next week is supporting ‘Bella Feud’ – check out their website here.
It will be so good to play Brighton, for a whole host of reasons, not least because it boasts such a varied musical atmosphere. It’s also one of the few ‘local’ places that are the right size for our kind of material.

We’re hoping to have some sound and video from the gig so watch this space!
Til next time,
