MetaQuorum is a truly international gig. Take this track, Simple Minds, for example. Lyrics written in Moscow, drums & percussion recorded in Friesland, keys etc. in the North Pennines, and mastering in Houston. And first listening in faraway Kathmandu!
On a sunny August day, our dear friend KC Sherstha kindly drove us through the sweltering monsoon heat to a surprisingly cosmopolitan district of Patan in Lalitpur, nestled in the Himalayan foothills. In an oasis of greenery and hip cafes, we made our way to the Kathmandu Jazz Conservatoire where we were greeted by some of the very efficient and friendly staff there, and ushered into a well-equipped studio. It was great to listen to the first master with a few of the technicians/musicians and get their feedback, too.
Huge thanks to Eric C. Shrestha for arranging with Abhisek Pun for some studio time.
We were impressed with the setup – thanks guys! Look forward to a jam session next time we’re in Nepal 😉
