Being a musician has another way of offering awesome experiences:
One can be contracted to work as a Guest Artist, or Session Musician on another musician’s project.
My supervisor at Peninsula Music Together, Pam Donkin, referred me to Andy Zamenes, who needed some traditional instrumentation for his upcoming project.
Andy (aka Andy Z) and I settled on hammered dulcimer as what he needed for a couple of tracks on his new project, Classic Songs & Tunes.
After consultation and working with the tracks we sent, I met him at the studio last November in Livermore where he was recording and mixing the tracks.
Here are a couple of views from my corner in the middle of the sound baffles:
A short while later the tracks were completed, and today Andy gave me my copy of the CD so I finally got to hear the completed project.
It is a sincere joy to collaborate with fine musicians and help them bring their vision to fruition!
