João Pedro Grácio Bandolim

Many years ago a man in his 90's honored me with a renowned João Pedro Grácio Portuguese bandolim that was made between 1920 and 1950. I recently featured this stunning instrument in a TraqFreq product movie that was shot at lakes, mountains and above the clouds in the Andes. Below are some photographs and a rough recording of this gorgeous bandolim!

Offshore Faith

I happened across this little test recording I made while setting up one of my project studios in 2002. This was my private musical retreat situated a safe distance away but still on the same premises as the Cancer hospital my mother and I ran for eighteen years. I laid down the instrumentation with wires coming out of everywhere, tracking the improvised guitar solo in one take while bending about 45 Degrees over the studio workstation. This is as close to "distortion" as any unplugged acoustic guitarist can get ;)
Process: Taylor 510 > AKG C 1000 S > Logic Audio > Nuendo, with Waves TrueVerb on the drums and Timeworks ReverbX on the guitar > sampling and MIDI programming.
