in the studio

Pin It

Jude is in the studio. The recording studio. I'm pleased that he's working on finally getting his music in a playback format! He's put off getting anything recorded for more than 4 years. Last year, he set up his studio in a spare bedroom, only to be thwarted by the arrival of Elizabeth in our lives. Now that winter break is almost over, he has some time to be up the recording away.

I've been encouraging him to record, but I'll admit I've struggled with the amount of time that he needs to spend in the studio in order to accomplish anything. I know how it can be tough to get into the creative zone, and how frustrating it can be to be interrupted. I've been telling him to just do a rough recording - voice and acoustic of each track, even if only for my benefit. Unfortunately (for me) he insists that the songs need to be complete before he lets them out of his hands.

So far, he has about 4 songs that have almost all the parts tracked. He's not a drum man, though, so that will be sent out, delaying the final product. I honestly don't know when we'll even see one track that is completely mixed down and ready by his standards. I know I would like to see something to show for all the hours he's been putting in up there, but perhaps just knowing that he's finally able to put his creative side to work on music is enough.
