La Solemnidad - Milana - Chris
Guitar composition - Michael Orzek @ https://soundcloud.com/lando-orz Piano - Milana Zilnik @ https://soundcloud.com/milanazilnik Flutes - Chris Scheri. @https://soundcloud.com/chrisscheri Engineered and Mixed by Chris Scheri. Mastered by Michael Orzek. It was wonderful to weave my flute playing around Milana's intricate piano playing and in synch with Michael's guitar themes. The mix was a challenge, balancing two lead instruments, while keeping the basis of the guitars present at all times. It required patience and close attention to detail. How did this collaboration come about? Michael sent me a SoundCloud private message mid last year, asking if I would play flute on "Solemnidad". The track was just guitar then. There were delays due to my prior commitments and, by the time I added flute, Milana's pianos were already there. Michael's guitar composition set the scene and Milana's intricate piano playing was an inspiration for me to work around in the beginning. In the mid section, I set off on my own but came back to the guitar themes in the end. For me the project turned out to be well worth the wait.
