I’m in Chicago working on Hamid Drake’s next Bindu recording for Rogue Art. It is a reggae improv vibe, and we had a blast on the first day in the studio. We are recording at Soma Electronic Music Studio in Chicago. John McEntire is the owner/engineer. It is a very cool hang, he has great mics, and tons of cool old school electronic music gear.
The cool AEA ribbon mic I am using.
