    Day 6 – Jesse Woodward, Div Craft and His Big Old Bears and Exodus Musica

    December 23rd, 2009

    On a temperate final day of recording, we were excited to see a new variety of instruments – a double bass, fiddle, and another awesome banjo. The Lazy Railway guys, Jesse Woodward and Div Craft were along with Ed and Natalie to record six twangin’ tunes.

    For the final session of Real to Reel, we excited to welcome Sudanese rhythm band Exodus Musica. Based across Melbourne and Perth and containing upwards of eight members, leader Vincent Likambo and three buddies came by to record two epic tracks – a traditional song called Malaika and their anthem ‘Exodus Musica’.

    Vincent asked if we could take a snap of the band, which made us wish we’d thought of doing that to begin with! Next time…

    Today was the final session of Real to Reel, but we’re keen to make this a regular Foodchain event. Keep an eye out for future recording studio projects, as well as our next project In Transit. Two screen spaces for emerging video and new media artists will launch mid-February.

    The hugest pile of thanks to sound engineer Laurie Sinagra who has been putting in the hard yards in the studio. As all the bands will atest, Laurie is the nicest guy around and a super pro. We’re so lucky to have him here to make the recordings sound awesome – thanks Laurie!

    Big props to photographer Elizabeth Stacey who kept us company, went on Icey Ice missions and so nicely documented the last six days. Thanks Liz!

    Thanks also to Aimee, Drew and Frank from the Butcher Shop from helping out and being awesome.

    John from Cut and Paste + crew were kind enough to come down and film the sessions. Visit http://cutandpastedvd.com/blog/real-to-reel-cut-paste-feature/ to see more photo galleries and clips – there’s an epic time lapse of Pond up there at the moment, set to the tune of their version of Block Rockin Beats.

    Finally, cheers to everyone who came by to visit the first Real to Reel recording studio!
