Almost all of the sessions were recorded on analogue equipment with little or no possibility of automation when mixing. So when putting down the final mixes we usually had one go where both hands and knees were engaged to get things right. I actually filmed us on one occasion doing this and that was during the mixdown of Message.
(well. ok. i agree. it looked rather pleasant. as we’d installed flying faders.)
Recorded and mixed at Ocean Sound Recordings, Giske, Norway.
(as you can see in the video, this is from the boat house where the studio was first located.)
I can finally announce that the full back catalogue is soon available in all usual outlets on the world wide web. Today I am editing the files for the Ocean Sessions EP from 2007 and happy to let you know that it will include, for the first time since its release, the song Without A Heart I’d Rather Die that was a part of the original sessions. A longer version of U (Try, Try, Try) as originally only available on the CD version is also part of the new digital release.
Updates on the release with some behind the scenes footage will be posted later.
