Over the next twelve months this blog will document the recording of CASAMENA's latest project, a hip-hop, bata exploration with Michael Spiro and your blog keeper, Carlos Mena. I've recently decided to include all things CASAMENA here as well so you'll read about other projects as well.

Today I'll try to contact Meshell...*holds breath*... I think Ron has a number for her.
Hmmm.. that brings up the question of budget, we ain't got one, but we are still making this record!! I plan on making a couple of calls today to folks who may be able to help us with some cash. We'll see... oh yeah, I played a little with the 5.1 surround mixing, we may use this for a DVD mix, I think a little separation of the channels will be cool for some of the bata work, and some effects, but nothing crazy though. I like to hear music coming from one general direction, call me crazy.

I got a call back from Scott, and he seemed interested in the project... we even have a tentative recording date... I'll try to contain my excitement until it's official.

still editing the bata wavs, ... tedious.
also left a message for Scott, Omar Sosa's manager today... we'll see if he calls back.

stumbled on Jose Baroso's website, pretty cool.

It will be tough to keep personal things out of this blog... but the last few days have been very hectic with the Anya for my iyatobi, which Michael happened to play, along with Lazaro Galarraga and Carlos Aldama. Tomorrow it's back to work on the record.
