The most common question I received about my album is where/how I recorded the songs. So here are some not so glamorous photos behind the scenes.
Recordings were mostly done at home, as I didn’t have the skills and budget to record at a proper studio. I moved three times while producing the album, so all the vocals, nylon guitar and some of the acoustic guitar were recorded in my room at four different houses. Fortunately the areas I was living were pretty quiet at night.
Dae composed the arrangement at a workspace he briefly had in KL, and majority of the work was done at both his home in KL and Seoul. I recorded “Bittersweet”’s electric guitar at his place in KL as well. We also composed and recorded the interlude “Announcement” and “Weather Forecast” together there.
Halfway through the production, Dae had to move back to Seoul, while I relocated to Sabah. Thanks to technology (and much determination and perseverance from both sides), we managed to work remotely together to complete the album.
As depicted in the photos, my equipment is fairly basic, which I’ve been using since 2012. Dae on the other hand was way more experienced in gears and stuff. I didn’t take many photos because most of the recordings were done after a long day at work, time was precious, or I‘d forgotten, or didn’t see the need to (which I kinda regret now hehe). Also, I needed to dress comfortably iykwim haha. Home is a very personal space after all 😉
