Essex soloist Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly was joined in Abbey Road with his band to perform the unreleased track ‘Ebb’. The drum and bass inspired song had an amazing energy and it was a joy to watch engineer Paul Pritchard capture the performance.
A 23 piece choir of chaps from London, aptly named Chaps Choir, performed with Australian born solo act, The Magic Lantern. His somber yet optimistic song, Air at the Top, adheres to his musical mission statement of ‘remedying the anxiety and fear present in everyone’.
The choir then sang with Northern Irish artist Pat Dam Smyth to deliver a powerful piece with an climax as emotional as it was satisfying.
The experience at Abbey Road has given a huge insight into the process that the guys here go through, the knowledge and skill passed down to us today is enormous and will be part of our audio engineering vocabulary for the rest of our lives.
Whether it be operating Pro Tools, keeping the take sheets, or shadowing the engineers when conducting their wide variety of duties, coming to Abbey Road has given me a real insight into the nature of a professional recording environment, as well as providing some much needed inspiration. I feel incredibly lucky and privileged to have worked on this project in such an iconic studio.
