Recording “The Oracle”

Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of hearing my “tarot piece,” The Oracle, come to life in Barefoot Recording Studio in Hollywood!

The work is a 12-minute exploration of the human condition as told through the symbology of a tarot deck. It’s written for five musicians, who each represent an important natural element: piano (Tree of Life), violin (Fire), cello (Water), flute (Air), and clarinet (Earth).

Many thanks to the following people for making this possible: Agnes Schwartz (violin), Pola Benke (cello), Liz LaCoste (flute/piccolo), Ryan Glass (clarinet), Masako Klassen (piano), and David Martinez (engineer).

I’ll announce when the recording is ready for release. In the meantime enjoy these photos from our recording session!

My brand new Behringer XENYX502 5-Channel Mixer just arrived today! It looks fabulous!

Since moving, I’ve been out of a good preamp for my recording exploits, had to give up the old *heavy* one… Now I’m all set to properly record updated and accurate demo recordings for my latest violin/piano sonata, “Gypsy Wanderer”! I’ll letcha know how it goes! :mrgreen:
