Last year I bought a 1.8 TB Raid enclosure for the studio and am in the process of transferring all of my recordings to it – years ago when we still had a 2″ 24 track machine I had everything transfered to ProTools at 24/48k and those files were stored on Data Tape. I am discovering a lot of unreleased material, maybe enough for an album of unreleased music from the Nineties. For example, I found an unreleased and untitled Bossa Nova from the sessions for The Hours Between Night + Day that has a nice koto-solo by Osamu Kitajima.
Last Monday I showed Stephen what I had been working on and pulled up Snakecharmer. There it was, with an extra bass performance and additional synth parts, which we had muted for the final mix in 1993.
Like having a time-machine. Eerily wonderful.
