Frying Nemo in the Studio: Recording the Dumaguete Demo

After we had played at Hayahay on Wednesday nights for about a month and written about five original songs we decided to record several of them for a demo cd. Nowell is friends with Bryan Arzaga who has a small recording studio in his basement, so early one morning we all went north to San Jose to record three of our songs: "Awaits", "Common Name", and "Wind Singing Over Our Song". Kerwin couldn't make the first recording session, so Gerard Locsin from Enchi played the drums on that first recording. In September we set up a temporary studio in Kerwin's living room to record the song he had written called "83". This photo journal covers these two recording sessions and if you want you can download mp3's of our semi-finished songs.
