Today we recorded the brass section... What an amazing experience. I can't begin to explain how good it felt. We've created this teaser with the footage we recorded:

Grenouille @ ULL rock 2012

Picture by Isaac Pérez Minaya

We've played again at ULL rock. This time we were not part of the competition, we went as last year winners, but I felt nervous anyway. But good nervous. I still have good memories of last year's gig. This time we had a lot of problems (I even had to beg for a guitar because mine died onstage) but everything was sorted. Thanks to Damian for his guitar!

Grenouille @ Gabinete literario

Picture by Zhana Yordanova

I love playing in Las Palmas. Especially if Conexión canarias are involved. I have to write something more ellaborate about this concert, but right now I'm a little bit tired. For now I'll just say that I loved it, great place, amazing people. 

Recording vibraphone

We've recorded vibraphones. I love the sound. Thanks to César from Socos dúo, you should really check their music!

Recording double bass

Picture by Javier Afonso

We've recorded double bass with Emilio. He's a great bassist, and he's really young. In a couple of years he's probably going to be one of the best double bass players around.

Recording pianos

Picture by Javier Afonso

Yes, that's a theater! We're recording pianos on a beautiful Steinway at Paraninfo. It sounds great. I'm so glad we did this, it's the sound I was looking for. And there's also that great feeling. I love recording in this place!

Recording drums

Picture by Javier Afonso

Drums are almost done. We're closer! The rhythm section is almost finished, we still need to record some percussion, a cymbal here and there... the kind of thing you always  forget to record. And also the peculiar sounds (footsteps, claps, mechanical sounds, etc)
