James Beaudreau: Recording Session Revelations

img  Tobias

With its both intense and yet mellow mood, „Java Street Bagatelles“ was something of an imaginary walk down that street in its title, a record which used a restricted array of tools to come up with something unmistakable and real. An important factor is achieving this was the inclusion of field recordings – both on an upfront and a background level. On the new work, James Beaudreau has decided to take this element to a new level: „The ambient sound that received a lot of attention on Java St Bagatelles has become more of a purposeful compositional factor in the new album“, Beaudreau discribed the variation, „That said, this new one is actually more "hi-fi" and sonically varied than the first one.“

Even though release date and record company are as yet unclear (Beaudreau runs his own label, Workbench, but is pondering offering it to other outfits), James hopes to „have the whole thing finished in March and hopefully available before the end of the year.“ For anyone not yet familiar with his music, there's no need to wait that long, however: There are still copies of „Java Street Bagatelles“ to be had directly from his homepage.
