Album Notes
Recorded by Justin Green and Matt Haapala at Toy Car Studios in Eau Claire, WI. The tone of the Yamaha U2 piano was prepared using the felt practice mute placed in front of the hammers. Further muting was done by installing felt strips between the strings so that only a single string was free to vibrate for each note. For the delay effects, Helpinstill pickups were installed and routed through a Roland MX1 mixer. Microphones were placed in front of the strings, angled downward to capture percussiveness of the action and record mechanical noise of the action.
