about

"My family and I have been discussing discipline lately, and the reasons why we practice anything - an instrument, ballet, kindness, exercise, mindfulness, anything at all really, and sometimes I feel at a loss to express, in a meaningful way, that the discipline of practice itself is a tool which can build depth, complexity, and richness of experience over time.

This Faun and a Pan Flute album is the result of individual and group discipline evoked by ten people: the nine musicians in the band and the producer who guided the making of the album. Adam Baber (electric guitar), Dan Bailey (fretless bass), Daniel Betts (drums), Chris Childs (marimba), David Gray (electric guitar), John Gregg (percussion), Julian Hinshaw (tuba), Benjamin Shirley (cello), and Peter Webb (alto saxophone) joined Benjamin Price (producer) in my home studio, studilaroche, over a span of two years to record the material presented on this album.

A typical recording session would consist of a day in the studio to set up the instruments and microphones, a considerable task as the musicians perform together in the same room at the same time; this requires many microphone sources to capture the wide variety of timbres created by the band. There’s plenty to keep in mind with the instruments bleeding into other instruments’ microphones, sight-lines between the musicians, and so on. A cue mix is established for the musicians, and then the band is ready to dive into performance.

With a good vibe established, a couple days of recording would ensue, and the entire band would perform the songs live-in-the-studio. For a band like Faun and a Pan Flute, which rely on interaction, visual cues and deep intra-band listening, establishing an environment in which they feel comfortable and able to focus on their music is critical. The songs are performed in full, with multiple takes recorded in pursuit of the right feel, intonation, pocket, execution, and tempo throughout the varied sections of the material.

This album is the result of the band’s commitment to the music, to the discipline of writing, rehearsing, playing, and recording. I hope I have captured and presented the music and tones in a faithful and articulate way. Take the time to open up the various moods and emotions presented here. This is music to grow with."

-Benjamin Price

We are so glad Ben Price is alive. He's a hero.
