Photo Call for Keyboard X


Stephen Fortner

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

So I just turned in copy to the mag for a "Musicmakers" story on the Keyboard Corner compilations. It's going in November. Does anyone who was involved in the most recent one have any photos of themselves at work on it? With their rig? Or better yet, with more than one participant together?

 

I don't know how many we'll be able to squeeze in, but the editor asked me for them. Ideally, the art director likes 300dpi. If you've got web hosting, post a link; otherwise, PM me and we'll get them delivered another way.

 

Much appreciate it!

Here's me at the Rex Hotel in Apr, where I recorded my Keyboard X song, Girl From IpaNaima.

And here's a link to a chart of my arrangement:

Still waiting for my copy in the mail, looking forward to hearing it

I've mentioned elsewhere how much I like the tune, but...

 

...what are your rules about covering it? My sax player would LOVE this!

 

And how did you get that grand to sound so much like a Rhodes??? :D

I played in an 8 piece horn band. We would often get bored. So...three words:

Absolutely, feel free to cover it, that's why I provided the chart. All I ask is A) play it well! B) credit me as composer/arranger, if possible, and C) send me royalties!

 

Just kidding about C). Well, not really. Oh, ok, alright, I'm kidding. Sort of. :D

This picture was taken in 2002, while I was visiting a friend in Berkeley, Ca. Sorry, but don't have other pictures of me playing a keyboard.

Ummmm...yeah...why do you ask?

 

The X2 is actually pretty great, as long as you have spare parts for it. ;)

 

If you're wondering why it's not digital/some sort of controller...I just prefer a mixer where I can see all of the knobs. :D

Very impressive for a home studio. Just surprised that you have the room for a board that size. Do you also have the room to record a band live of the floor?

:D Yup. Of course, if *I* had a studio like that, then THE MRS. would have to have a SEWING ROOM equally as large. :freak:

 

Sheeeesh.

 

I'll bet none of you guys get THAT! :(

It ain't that big - it's just a spare bedroom.

 

It's about 17 x 14, and the board is on one of the 14' walls, along with a rack on either side of it.

 

Do you also have the room to record a band live of the floor?
I could probably record a band in my living room if I wanted to...it's big enough and sounds pretty great, and that's where my piano is.

 

We set up a full band jam in there for my annual Hallowe'en party. :cool::thu:

With my wife, it's an art room...and she does have one. :D

Here's one I took a few years ago right after I got my B3. The resolution is way too low for print, but other than my rig photos, it's all I've got.

BTW, I've been out of town for a few weeks so haven't gotten X yet. I'm hoping it'll be in the big stack of mail I have to pick up at the post office this morning.

Hey everyone,

 

Just wanted to thank you all for hooking us up with your photos... we had space for a bunch of them, and the piece looks really nice, imho. I look forward to seeing it in print in the November issue!

 

thanks again!
