It's been a while (at least a month) since I posted any news! This post is to share the amazing work of Annick Brémault aka Aloysius Bell on this song "Your Heart is Feathers". I engineered the audio recordings for the video and it was done all live, of the floor in only 8 inputs (listed below) and it was mixed by my friend Sacha Daoud which also produced this version of the song. I hope you enjoy it!

A few months ago (end of June 2018 to be exact) I recorded the Montreal based band "The Leftovers" live at La Hacienda Creative using mostly cheap microphones (the only expensive mic was the AEA R88 for overheads and a U87 for vocals) and Universal Audio Apollo interfaces.
October 2012 I started working with Brian on the Papo & Yo original soundtrack.
This was his first video-game project and it was as close as I’ve ever been to anything related to soundtracks or video game music.
Jump a few months ahead, (about summer 2013) and the Tomb Raider reboot was released. After playing the game I told Brian: “Dude, I can totally see you working in a Tomb Raider game!!” A couple years later, guess which project Brian was invited to pitch to? Yep… you guessed it right… FUCKING TOMB RAIDER!!!!!!!!!
I always liked to create my own sounds... using outobard FX, or stacking plugins, or recording the sound of a specific track through a room, or through a piece of gear that was not supposed to handle that signal... whatever... try something different.
