End of August is approaching, and so is our deadline! In a couple of weeks now, the master of our album will be on its way to the factory, and by then, we still have some work to do. Every recording we make tends to rise up our level of expectations, which tends also to take… more time!
So while spending a lot of time in the darkness of the studio, sited in front of the computer, trying out new sound combinations or just creating the artwork, we also try to find a balance, to keep everyday life joyful. Part of that are lunch breaks. Yes. Just simple lunch breaks.
While it is tempting to drop down lunch breaks under the belief that “any minute counts” and has to be used… well… in the studio, being productive, that is, only dedicated to music, and become a “cold-slice-of-pizza-in-front-of-the-computer” aficionado, we really feel this can be energy draining. Even depressing!
Not only do our body and brains need simple and healthy refreshing stuff to recover from all their creative activity, it is also nice to get back to “normal life”, to disconnect from the studio and come back later with fresher ears and minds… well just a break!
Recording in Greece definitely makes it easy for us, far beyond all our expectation, a simple Greek salad is cheap, refreshing, no cooking (=time saving), not too much dish-washing involved… THE perfect ideal meal so far while recording!
Enjoy your day, have a break!
