Privilege 3

Working on Parenthetical Girls Privilege Pt.3 record right now. I got my new studio set up just in time! I actually have a comfortable place to work for the first time in my life! I am so extremely excited to not have to work in a closet (literally) or have to break into abandoned warehouses (literally) to make music! I will post other pictures soon, but this is where I sit.

For one of the songs for Privilege Pt.3 or maybe Pt. 4, not sure yet, I have composed a piece for this organ. I have a couple other of my own pieces that we will record at the same time. It is not every day you get the organist from a cathedral to play your compositions on a 4000 pipe organ. So I am going to record as much as possible. I should be doing that this week!
