The album is a collection of improvised tunes captured over one creative afternoon recording session in always sunny & tropical Brisbane. A spontaneous composition session and improvisation recorded live at the Griffith Film School soundstage Brisbane, Australia. The result of this encounter is the Follow The Tiger album, produced by Steve Reinthal and Daniel Bartoš.
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.
The music was captured with two Sony C-38 microphones to a Sound Devices 744 recorder and mastered in ProTools. No overdubs, edits or re-takes were employed.
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 and Michael Palm acoustic, guitars, Seymour Duncan amplification, various SFX, Sony C-38 microphones with Sound Devices 744 recorder.
Another important ingredient: Coffee. Yes, Brendon "on the bridge" with his great flat white coffees ...
