Live Recording Session

It’s unbelievable: it felt like ages, but finally we pressed the magic red recording button, and then tracked our new compositions while the cameras were filming us. The result will be wonderful, we are already convinced of that! And some of you have contributed directly to this with “Silent Disco” headphones as an audience! Many thanks to Til and the whole production crew and also to the GVL, thanks to which this production was made possible for Mario and me to this extent. Extraordinary thanks also to our special guest, Stephan Emig accompanying us on percussion and live electronic. Here are photos by Jannik and Louisa (soundcheck and event).

The Fire Orange Project is preparing an upcoming production. Big news – the band now features a new guitar wizard, Florian Kemper! Florian was born in Hanover (Germany) in 1989, lives in Hamburg and is a guitarist and sound nerd. He studied at the music college Hannover and at the Institute for Music in Osnabrück and has been working as a freelance live and studio guitarist for over 10 years. In addition to his diverse sideman activities, he is always looking for creative challenges. So happy to him on board! He fits in perfectly.
