    Drom - New York, NY

This last teaser shows Sarpay Ozcagatay, aka Sharpeye, recording his flute solo for the track "Gemini - part 1".

This is from an alternate take, recorded at the end of the 5-day session. It's also unmastered.



This time we witness Casimir Liberski recording his Rhodes solo on the track "Gemini - part 1".


Here's a little footage from the album recording session + a few seconds of the track "Gemini - part 2".

That's right, Matt is overdubing a second drum part!

More to come.


After a few hesitations/dilemmas regarding mixing, tracklisting, and overall concept, I finally went to see Scott Hull - mastering engineer at Masterdisk!




The mixing of the new album is almost done! I just need to remix one of the tunes ("Soundfrieze #2"), to try something different,...

I've started mixing the new music at the Bunker Studio with the great Aaron Nevezie (who also recorded it). 

Last week I played for my friend Art Flem's first album release party, at the Boule Noire in Pigalle.

This is it! We've recorded the 10 pieces of music for my next album, scheduled for release next summer.

Engineer Aaron Nevezie was behind the board again, and my friend musicians gave life to these abstract ideas:

The first recording session for my next album will take place at the Bunker Studio in Brooklyn, from November 13th to 17th.

Matt Garstka will be on the drums once again, as will Casimir Liberski on keyboards. But this time I'm adding Tareq Rantisi on percussion and Sarpay Ozcagatay on flute. 


Track name: Portrait de Famille

Casimir Liberski's second album has been released, just a few months after the first one, the Caveless Wolf. Actually, these two are like twins - recorded during the same session at the Bunker Studio in Brooklyn, NY.

My friend Casimir Liberski has just released his first album, "The Caveless Wolf", featuring Jeff Witherell (drums), Andy Berman (guitar) and yours truly.
