Recording the Score for Midlife, the Movie

Recording the Score for Midlife, the Movie

Back in July we had a marathon two days of recording sessions for the score of the movie “Midlife,” which Yoko composed. That’s a very short time in which to record a score, but we did it – 39 songs in two days! The ensemble included Yoko Miwa, Will Slater, Scott Goulding, Andy Voelker, Connor Dugan, and Joyce Cheung. The session was done with all live musicians, breathing life into Yoko’s compositions.

Yoko Recording Score for Midlife

Midlife actor, writer, and director Greg Travis came out from Hollywood for the session. Up until that point, he had only heard Yoko’s demos of the music, made in the music notation software on her computer. He really liked the demos and Yoko was worried he might be married to the way the recordings originally sounded. Working together was a new experience, since Greg’s expertise is in film and Yoko’s is in music, and while he had a specific feel for how the music should sound, he didn’t know the terminology to explain. But, Greg was thrilled with the warm, live sound, and after recording all 39 pieces, he’s just as thrilled with the outcome, and so are we.

Thanks to sound engineer Peter Kontrimas’s hard work, the mixing of the sound and mastering was almost complete as of last week. It was a pleasure working with him, Greg, and all of the musicians on the project.

We can’t wait to see Midlife when it comes out – when we receive a copy of the DVD, we intend to have our own screening party somewhere here in the Boston area. It will be open for any of our fans to attend, so stay tuned!

  1. I owe my life to ecigs. I was one of thoes smokers who could not quit whatever what I did. I tried one out and never went back to cigarettes! It has actually been over a year or so since I have smoked cigarettes and I can finally play with my kids without running out of breath. For anyone looking for a good idea, try an e-cig that tastes like e cigarette first and then, after you get accustomed to the flavor, try some other flavors like banana or orange. Remember to keep it simple and don’t be scared to spend a few bucks more for a more effective device. You really don’t buy the least costly cigarettes do you? Then you should not go cheap here either lol! After a few days of using an e-cig, tobacco cigarettes start to taste like junk.
