The album is made of collection of improvised songs captured over one creative afternoon recording session in always sunny & tropical Brisbane. It started as a spontaneous composition session and improvisation produced by Steve Reinthal. All tracks were recorded live at the Griffith Film School soundstage Brisbane, Australia, 2013. Selected recordings published in 2019 as Follow The Tiger album.
Obviously, the tiger doesn't live here, in Queensland Australia. The Tiger acts as a rather well known symbol of the intricate natural beauty with deadly connotations. A timeless symbol of a divine inspiration bridging as far as back to baroque poetry and William Blake's poem The Tiger.
Full session and all the songs were captured on two Sony C-38 microphones with the Sound Devices 744 recorder. The album material was not altered or post processed. As for the electro-didjeridoo two separate amplification channels were used: the instrument channel and the nose mic channel, which can be heard most on the track Once.
Daniel plays: electro and acoustic telescopic didjeridoo, Roger Mayer Axis Fuzz, Korg Kaoss Pad, Legend amplification.
Steve plays: Steinberger GLT2, Fender Telecaster electric, Michael Palm acoustic, guitars, Seymour Duncan amplification, various SFX, Sony C-38 microphones with Sound Devices 744 recorder.
Another important ingrediences: Coffee. Yes, Brandon "on the bridge" with his great flat white coffees ...
