Back when The Hypnotics were recording their album Modern Art Rntertainment in late 2014, I got a message from Dave Konstantino. He told me they had one song that needed a piano part, and they were having a tough time finding any local studio that had a good-sounding piano. They tried a digital keyboard, but that wasn’t cutting it.
I happen to have a piano that sounds better than good. I think you know where this is going.
Dave and Mike came here with Josh Kaiser in January of last year to record the part. I didn’t play it myself — Colin Wysman did — but I grabbed a bit of video footage. Thought it might be fun to include it in the aforementioned mega video that should end up covering about two years of musical adventures, to say, “Hey, here’s another thing that happened in-between all those other things.”
It only took me a year and change to get around to doing something with the raw footage.
It was kind of neat watching someone else record my piano for a change. It would have been nice to get credit in the liner notes for the free use of my studio space and equipment (or even a brief mention in the thank-you section), but I guess you can’t have it all.
