Videos on The Making of Robbie Bronnimann's Upcoming Album "Rotations"

image

Robbie Bronnimann dropped me an email recently letting me know about a very cool series of videos he’s posting over at Sonic State.

First off, if you're not familiar with Robbie’s work, he’s a London-based composer and producer. He also has released music under the name dba with vocalist Shaz Sparks and acted as a writer/producer The Sugababes. He has also collaborated and produced the last few Howard Jones albums and has also toured with Howard (see this Modulate This Post on their Australian Tour).

Now Robbie is working on his own solo album project called Rotations and is shooting video along the way. The videos are great and show a behind-the-scenes view of how a seasoned producer works. I recommend you watch them all as Robbie does a great job explaining his studio and technology - and more importantly goes beyond technology and talks a lot about the creative process.

I’ve embedded the first 5 videos below to get you started. This is a work in progress so you’ll want to bookmark http://www.sonicstate.com/news/studiolog (Note they are posted in reverse date order). My favorite is Video 5 where he brings in Shaz Sparks and his 5 year old daughter  to record vocals. He then build’s up tracks using elements of their voices.

I'm really looking forward to Rotations!
