Stoner Rock Jam Collective: Now on Bandcamp!

Submitted by Baris Tosun on Thu, 03/23/2017 - 20:24

Slightly edited version of a post I made on facebook earlier today:

Last November I started a project: the Stoner Rock Jam Collective. The idea was to get some rock loving musicians in a room and hit ‘record’ for 4-5 hours - each session is entirely improvised.

Every month I book a room at a rehearsal studio (in Vienna) and we go again. I’ve been at it for 5 months now, and my goal is to continue for at least a year, or until I have enough material for a compilation.

Recording an album with Dominic

We are half way into our album recording excursion and already we have a great number of tracks. The meat and bones of the recording has been done, what's left is there mixing and then mastering. I'm confident we can complete the album by May 24th, despite there still being much to do. I may even have time to dedicate to my own tracks.

The sound farm at this time of year is splendid. The weather is neither hot or cold but a happy in-between state. The occasional shower or even storm providing a welcome interlude to the work we've been doing.

Faraway Studio

This summer I've invited a few friends over to Mugla/Turkey to set-up a new project studio. After a period of studio preparation we plan on a phase of song-writing followed by recording, mixing and finally producing sessions - all in the space of 16 days.

Music in the West(end)

We (Marjorie's Dead) performed an open mic gig at Caffe Concerto in the westfield's centre. Boy what a night, the standard was high all round.

Playing open mic gigs can be highly unpredictable affairs, there are such a wide variety of approaches. This was one of the not-so-common 'performers of a high standard playing to a crowd of people dining in a fancy Italian restaurant' kind.
