Skyping to SXSW

Ghost Ghost got booked to play an event at South By South West Interactive in Austin, Texas.  As the band isn’t getting paid enough to justify my traveling to every gig I stayed in Vermont.  This however did not prevent me from appearing with the band at the show.  Using 4 laptops (2 on each end) we used Skype to allow me to play with the band via the interwebs.

There was a lot of latency to deal with but as I was playing mostly ambient asynchronous loops and intermittent guitar outfreakage it wasn’t really an issue.



Mixing the Document

Spent the weekend in Sparta, New Jersey mixing the next Stone Document disc.  At the helm at Homebrew Studio was Kevin Lacatena. Between him and Mike Roze they dialed up some amazing sounds (awesome drums). It is close to sounding like a record.  Just mastering and arguing over song titles left to do.
