    Cross your fingers

    Actually I don't believe in luck.

    Just preparation and grace. Mostly grace.

    In the past week, I've had two producers ask me about orchestra sessions to be recorded in the next month, one in LA and one in London. We all know this is a business built on speculation and broken promises, but although nothing's been promised so far, it's still exciting to be considered.

    So, I'm hoping for the best and we'll see what happens. The one in LA may be at Sony's scoring stage at Culver City. The main studio in 100' by 60' by 30' high. Seats about 120 musicians. We'd only use about 80.

    The one in London is still up in the air. I'm researching studios now.

    So say a prayer and maybe I can get some great photos and have some wonderful stories to share.

    Speaking of great photos....

    Here's CTS Studio in London during the recording of The Mummy Returns.

    What a shot. This makes me so excited.

    Air Lyndhurst and Abbey Road are the other two contenders.

    Often when I looked up I saw a Schoeps or two, sometimes the stereo model. It is one of the choice mics imo.

    Nah....I'm thinking something more along the lines of a small long-haired guy.

    Peace,
