Sitting and editing

The most painful work while recording in our opinion is editing…
While listening to a dozen of takes you have to decide which one is the best for the record. And besides that, it takes an awful lot of time to edit these little takes of vocals, guitar bits and so on…
At this point of the production we barely sleep, eat, clean up or do anything else. But it´s fun 🙂 Hell yeah it really is. We don´t see much sun but who needs sun anyway… Additionally to all the recording, editing, shouting, screaming, arguing, crying and biting the fingernails to the bones, we are arranging the release party for the upcoming album and of course the designs for the album artwork. Here we got a little help, actually a big help because this time we won´t do the artwork on our own. Verena and Dave from Starfountain Design, two very nice and capable lads are designing the artwork for “Once upon a time”. We are very glad to have these brilliant desginers on board. Normally Xiphea manages all by themselves, but for this production we need more time at our Xstudio, so we decided to let other people who know what they are doing when it comes to design, to do the job. And at this point we are very pleased with their work so far.

That´s it for now, we still have some work to do 🙂
