PICTURE IT! Bloomfield, NJ 2011. The students of Professor Peter Gordon's "Planning for a Recording Project" hit the road for our first class field trip - a visit to Metrosonic Studios in Brooklyn. lol ok ok so it's not a Sophia Petrillo moment, but our class sure had fun! We got to Metrosonic and immediately sat in on a rare session - the re-collaboration of the cast from the ground-breaking 1983 television opera "Perfect Lives" but done almost entirely in Spanish (now renamed "Vidas Perfectas.") Our class enjoyed cast members Ned Sublette, Peter Gordon and director Alex Waterman's 30 minute piece, in preparation for their upcoming show. Once their session was done, Gordon and Chief Engineer Peter Mignola allowed our class to start a new session where we recorded vocals, claps and live drums. Done in a jam session style, "#brainwash" came out of a quick idea from the students and we had a ball!

Once the recording session and field trip was done, Professor Gordon asked the class to take the Protools Session files and create our own track from the vocals, claps, and drums. Here is my interpretation of "#brainwash" - a fun jam session that instantly reminds me of "Soul Train" dancers. In working on the music for this remix, I imagined that this tune would be something these dancers would freak out to. Now, it's yours for FREE. Enjoy :)
