This is (yet) another version of “What Are You doing the Rest of Your Life.” I recorded this at iconic Hyde Street studios in San Francisco over the holidays for my girlfriend. It’s me singing (badly) over piano, which was a white Yamaha C3. The engineer was a young feller named Nathan Winters.
On the piano: 2 Neumann KM84’s spaced and placed right behind the headboard. The piano has a muted quality because I am a big fan of una corda (heavy use of the soft pedal)
On my vocal: Sanken CU41
Both piano and voice were recorded thru Studio A’s Neve 8048 board – a vintage behemoth. The audio was recorded to Pro Tools. The reverb is the studio’s EMT plate reverb (I forget the model but it was definitely vintage). No EQ or compression was used; we did a bit of intonation correction.
