Songs of Love (and Decay)

A couple of months ago I started a project in a new direction: writing songs for vocalist Evelien van den Broek. Culminating in a recording session last week at STEIM's studio 1, where we recorded three of the five songs. It was totally mindblowing to hear these very personal songs come to live in the hands of such a versatile singer. After the bulk of the vocal recordings was done we had fun recording handclaps and overdubs. Aside from finishing the two remaining songs, there is the big task of mixing the recordings. But what a great job!
