For the last couple of months we have been working with a client for a fairly large complex project involving classically themed music and a choir. Our client simply brings in their compositions and we map them out with a piano directly into Pro tools. Our next step was to assemble their choir and arrange their schedules so we can record all of their pieces. We have recently completed that stage and we are now deep into arranging the musical accompaniment writing the violin, cello and upright pieces “string arrangements” along with woodwinds, brass and others it is really coming together. I am quite please with where this is all heading!
Writing new musical pieces to someone else’s composition can be somewhat daunting until you find your groove inside the song. If you are intuitive you’ll start to see, understand and feel what the music is trying to say and from that point forward its a cake walk. I really enjoy expanding myself and doing new things though this type of project is not all that new to me it is still practice. It’s a practice in my craft that affords me to hone my skills and become better and better as I move along my musical road. I truly love seeing the smile on my clients faces and watching them light up when they hear their song come to life in the recording studio for the very first time!
At the end of the day if you find yourself sitting in a recording studio in Los Angeles realizing you truly love what you do and if you are able to survive while you do it you are truly blessed. Because the heart pays you what money can not afford joy and well being! A life with out music for me is not anything I want to experience I just thank God for life and while I am at it I thank him for music too!

Hey everyone I hope you are all well! Today we are working with another new client its a hip hop group based out of the Salt Lake area. We are working at the Odgen recording studio and this will be our 4th song with this clients obviously they love the work! And I personally love doing it-Ha!
We have one song in the oven its already cut, just awaiting the mix and final master then another one we will track today on this beautiful Northern Utah Sunday.
I have rewired a lot of stuff in the studio recently and I finally have my vision in nearly full perspective. I have accomplished I’d say at least 80-90% of my vision and then some successfully at this studio thus far here’s a little break down. Equipment nearly 95%, aesthetics nearly 98% and functionality and options nearly 99% and vision nearly 95% right now we are just really working on the market which is key to any new or old company for that matter.
Remember I told you about the new song that’s kind of a 80’s kick back I am working on with a clients a couple of days ago, well it is coming along very well. We are doing the full production and recording of all instruments including the vocals with mix and master that I am really excited about its becoming a great fun song. I will give you links once it’s complete.
Well everyone I am signing off for now be safe and and keep on making music!

Hey Guys I hope you are well! Well I had a late night last night, let me clarify for me it was the all too dreaded all-nighter in the recording studio uggggggggggh. But on a brighter note we did get a lot done I am working with a client on a kick back 1980’s feel/vibe song. We have almost all of the music produced and it’s a pretty catchy little melody line of which I had a hand in writing…Ha!
The track reminds me of Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean with the pumping bass line and tight mid tempo impact drums, I think this song has very good potential.
Once the music production is complete we will be moving on to recording some awesome vocals and I have got a lot of old tricks, people always ask me, “How did you do that?” But man oh man have I got some new trick up my sleeve and I can not wait to put them to task! Exciting…so all and all an all-nighter here and there it isn’t so, SO bad if you get the work done and you have a few extra hours the next day to catch up on your much beloved beauty rest:D
Thanks for stopping by! Once we get rolling I will post you some tips, tricks and perspectives for music production and recording especially acoustic instruments and vocals and we will get to know each other better as we move along! Hit me up with any questions in the comment section!
Be Blessed-Stay Humble, Isaac Reain
