Note to self: cats like to sleep. They like to sleep in unmade beds; they especially like to sleep on stacks of paper. If the stack contains important documents like scores or parts, even better. The best cat-sleeping scenario involves an unmade bed and a stack of parts that were hot off the hp laserjet 1000 printer press. As you can see in this picture, Lindsay Lohan was a happy cat. Thank goodness my percussionist wasn't allergic to cat fur.
Here are pictures from the actual recording session, as promised.
Ty Niemeyer on marimba.
Zach Mueller, engineer.
Austin Murphy on marimba. I swear I wrote for other instruments.
From inside the studio.
And I must leave you with this picture.
