All week, 11 local Orlando bands will be visiting our flagship recording studio the Audio Temple to record interpretations of songs from Beck’s new album Song Reader, which was released only as sheet music. Advanced Session Recording Course Director Darren Schneider is producing and engineering these songs with the help of Recording Arts students, while instructors and students from the Film program are documenting the performances.
Check out a few of the performances from the first two days of filming below.
The New Lows. Indie/punk band The New Lows, who just released a new album (I Couldn’t Sleep) last month, perform a fast-paced version of “Do We? We Do.”
beef wellington. The electro-organic funk producer provided Roger Troutman-esque talkbox vocals to the Beck track “Just Noise.”
Transmit Now. Orlando pop-rockers Transmit Now (who have appeared on MTVU and played with bands such as Anberlin and Mayday Parade) power through their take of “Don’t Act Like Your Heart Isn’t Hard.”
