pop goes the symphony!

10 November 2006

Despite technical problems that had us gnashing our teeth, last night’s recording session with the New York Symphonic Arts Ensemble was a smashing success.

Conductor Sybille Werner did a brilliant job, the orchestra played wonderfully, sound engineer Howard Post made it all sound great, and we met our goal of getting symphonic backing for five songs: “Driving In Manhattan In My Car”, “Rey”, “Through With Love”, “The Ocean Part 2” and “What’s The New Girl Wonder?” (Perry made a creative decision to not record the orchestra for “Stockholm Street”).
