Weekend Cat Blogging with Sam Sam : In the Studio

Sam Sam has decided that the space under the studio console is an excellent napping spot.

This is where the Nord Stage lives when not gigging, and my main Pro Tools HDX station for music recording and CatSynth TV post-production.  I am loath to move her when I find her there, so I usually just wait a little bit. After all, even napping cats rarely stay in one place for long.

If the studio looks a bit messy and chaotic, that is because it is.  Between gigging, travel, and probably too much gear, it has been hard to keep in order during the second half of the year.  The latest dismantling was for my recent performance at VAMP, which came before I had replaced everything from my New York trip.  The Nord keyboard usually makes it back in place quickly, sometimes it takes the ever-expanding collection of synths a little while longer.  Hopefully in the next few quieter weeks will get it organized and better than ever…

 

Weekend Cat Blogging with Luna: Napping near the Artwork

Cats always find interesting places to nap. For Luna, that sometimes means next to the standing artwork. We have quite a few free-standing 3D pieces in the collection at CatSynth HQ.

Luna will probably be napping quite a bit this weekend, as I will be spending most of it in the studio with Reconnaissance Fly as complete the final mixes for our upcoming album. In the evenings, I will be back here to work on a completely different musical project, my electronic solo show in Portland next Saturday. But Luna gets to sit in and supervise that one.


Carnival of the Cats will be hosted this Sunday by Samantha, Clementine and Maverick.

And the Friday Ark is at the modulator.
