CHRIS BROCKBANK -- CIRCLES
This album is very much a studio project.
Live performance is about tricks
and showmanship and in the recording session can often be a little dry in
comparison. Care has been taken to maintain a live, concert-ish feel to all the tracks.
Having recorded in many major studios, it was decided for this project that
a residential house in Naremburn, Australia be fitted out specifically for the
The latest Digital Audio Workstations, computer modelling and
recording technologies were deployed. Everything was recorded, edited and
mixed on-site. That is not to say that traditional recording techniques were
not used ... quite the contrary.
All the tracks have the seasoned organ and/or piano skills of Jeff Morris,
my long time keys player on them. That classic combination of organ and
strat is so much a defining feature in my compositional style.
It was an absolute pleasure to do those vocal and guitar takes without a
strict studio regime or pressing time constraints.
It’s all about the music after all and that’s how it should be.
