Back to the Studio

Updated: Jul 5, 2020

Last week I was back in a recording studio for the first time since the state of emergency was declared. I had to travel via train to get there, though everyone on the train was wearing a mask. I was also wearing a mask and had extras with me, as it can be hard to tell how long it will take to record harmony parts. I brought hand sanitizer, and was very careful about the things I touched.


There are issues with recording studios. I had forgotten how poorly ventilated they can be in order to keep down external noise. I have to sing into a mic with pop shield, and I couldn't help but wonder how these things are cleaned. I didn't touch them with my hands, but I am covering them in water droplets when I sing. I brought my own printouts of the music, though a new system had been put in place where the music was positioned for me and clipped in to position, so that I didn't have to touch the music the studio provided. I was never overly close to the sound engineer, but it did feel like we were doing a strange awkward dance to avoid coming to close to each other during the breaks.


It is going to take me a while to get used to going out to work. I will be at a different studio this week, and will be looking for any differences in how they are working. It's going to be a long time before things feel normal again.

Love is life but if we could not find true love than it’s a bad night mare because it gives us hardships by recording studios Austin and we could not do as much things we became helpless and no one can make us strong instead of us
