Wesonator Summer Recap & Autumn Preview

Hi my fellow audio nuts,

It's been a really busy summer. Most of my time has been spent at the beautiful and brand new Studio CMI in Switzerland finishing off the Leelo Pascal album "Couleur Nature". Pascal also asked me to record drums and bass for Amadou's new album and during my last trip over I was asked to record Yassin's killer rap vocals for the Isorane album Leelo is producing.

Between my time in the alps and the cheese fondues, we finished the new Monster Jaw EP "Losing All My Friends" and put the finishing touches on Debi Doss's debut EP "Debi Does ...".

In the mean time, there are a few projects on the stove at the Sonic Cuisine. The Sam Purdey mix is a few tweaks away from completion. Gloria Nuti's new track is making great progress and will soon feature some cool B3 playing. And finally, work is about to start on the new Delta Unit tracks. I'll keep you posted on all these as they come along.

On the media side of things, I had the great honour to interview two of Canada's greatest, GGGarth Richardson and Mike Fraser for Mix Magazine. And I did some cool vids for Tannoy.

That's it for now. Enjoy the reads, the photos and the videos.

As always, See you on the other side of the glass.

Wesonator decamps to Studio CMI in the Swiss Alps

Hey all. I'm writing you from Studio CMI in the Swiss Alps to give you a little peak behind the scenes and a round up of some images and video material you may have seen on various social media pages.

All's going well here and we're nearing the completion of Leelo Pascal's Album. Once this done, it'll come to the UK with me to be mastered at the Sonic Cuisine.

Before that, I'll stay on a couple more days to record a local band. More on that as it happens.

It is amazing to be welcomed so warmly in a brand new studio. And it is an honour and a total pleasure to work for an artist who has such a clear vision and after all it is an engineer's greatest satisfaction to aid the artist achieve that goal and make them proud of their art.

A massive thank you to Terry Nelson from Studio Equipment for supplying me with the tools I need, to Leelo, Lamiryan, Kay-Yah, Izis, Neo & Onyx for looking after me, to Jaques & Steve for being cool new buddies, to Les Pedzes for putting my shaker skills to the test and for making me laugh uncontrollably and to Debbie and Swiper for putting up with me doing the job I love. x 

Some Audio News From The Sonic Cuisine

Hi all,

A quick post to keep you up to date on what's cooking at the Sonic Cuisine.

I've been spending some quality time up in Bradford with the Monster Jaw lads. We've recorded 4 new songs which we're in the middle of mixing.

Also just completed a mini tour with Australian hard rock band Deth Enemy in Germany, The Netherlands and the UK. Mix work continues on the next Delta Unit instalment and I had the great pleasure of recording the amazing Elliott Randall for a Samuel Purdey song, which we'll start mixing in June.

I'll be in the Swiss mountains for 3 weeks, mixing Leelo Pascal's new album in his wonderful studio.

So, you can expect various social media updates on that. And talking about social media, I stumbled across one of Barry Rudolph's posts. Have a looksie, it's an all-star cast.
