For me the technology in music plays always an important role. aesthetically, electronic elements in music are so beautiful. I always try to combine analogue sounds with electronics. But for the live set, now, i prefer not to use a computer on stage because i want to feel free - just only to work and sing with my voice. I think my Drummer will trigger all electronics sounds on stage. - Clara Hill
For the vocals, Clara used a nice process:
I recorded the vocals in my home studio. I used ProTools, recording the vocals after i did the sketches. Then i arranged some additional vocals and did some ad-libs. I cut and cleaned all vocals. Then i bounced them and sent all stems to King, for the further mixing process.
For my last album i mostly used an old AKG from the 60ties, which i really liked because of the mid frequencies. My voice sometimes is bit too airy“. And the AKG suited to my voice very well. Some Neumann's are very good too but sometimes too „high“ for my voice. I would choose the best microphone which fits perfectly to the sound and atmosphere of production. For „Pendulous Moon“ i used an Neumann and an small Sennheiser evolution for some vocal-effects. - Clara Hill
When she sent me all the vocals for the songs I was blown away. You never know what someone is going to send and its super exciting to think about all the directions it could go. Her layering and harmonies were top notch. No autotune was used (take note kids). I just added a nice EMT 250 on bgs and a bit of Ableton delay. Had those on sends for more control.
Mixing was very interesting because Clara is super detailed with every single thing, which turned out to be really satisfying in the end.
Mastering was done by none other than Martin from AtJazz ! He loved the album so much (and remixed the single) that he wanted to master it ! Thank you so much!
Anyhow, that's Pendulous Moon.
(left out 2 songs just because I did lol)
