Moby ditches electrics
Moby is not using any electronics on his new album.
The 'We Are All Made Of Stars' musician, who rose to fame with dance hit 'Go' in the 90s, is back in the studio and said he has already laid down the foundations for his next album in two days.
Moby wrote on his blog: "We just finished day two in the studio. Day one was spent recording drums, and today we recorded acoustic guitar and piano.
"I really like trying to record a record with such specific restrictions placed on the creative process. At present the one rule is: no electronics. So everything has to be playable/recordable in the acoustic realm (with microphones)
"There's something really satisfying about being in an old studio using old microphones and old pre-amps and an old mixing desk and recording in the way that people recorded 30 and 40 years ago."
Moby also said he's working on over 20 tracks for the follow up to last year's 'Wait For Me'.
He added: "Currently I'm working on about 24 songs, but I think I'll start narrowing them down soon. Some of the songs are older ('Whispering Wind', 'When it's Cold', 'I'd like to Die', 'Great Escape', etc), but most of them are new."
Moby also said although he doesn't know how the record will turn out, but he's having fun recording it.
He said: "I have no idea what the final record might sound like, but I'm really enjoying this process, a lot. At some point I have to find an orchestra and figure out how to record them. That should be the, uh, hard part."Posted on 12 Feb 2010 07:30 to category : Music News
