Firstly and the biggest news this week, JabunAudio is moving! That's right! After over 3 years in Burgess Hill, Sussex, a ton of adventures, animations and tracks, the time finally seemed right to mix things up a little and take a leap into a new area. A huge thanks to everyone in the Sussex scene for helping me grow as a producer and a business, my family, friends and local clients too. Since most of my work is remote anyway, the location change will hopefully not mean a substantial dip in work, so keep sending stuff my way and I'll do my best to help.
So where is JabunAudio moving you ask? The answer is, Herne Bay, Kent, a sunny quiet seaside town just over 2 hours drive north-east. Not too far, but not quite a stone's throw away either. Currently, I'm just testing the water before making a final decision, but if all goes to plan I hope to be fully settled in by the end of September. Exciting times!
Unfortunately during this limbo period of approximately 2 months, some JabunAudio services will have to be put on hold, and the work bookings schedule may be a little turbulent over the next few weeks (August especially) too since I'll be flitting back and forth between Sussex and Kent occasionally to attend to things. I'll be trying to run as many services I can during this time period, but until further notice I won't be able to take bookings for:
- Session bass guitar or acoustic guitar work (reduced selection of equipment for electric guitar work too)
- Session vocals or voiceover recording. Voice clean-up and mixing WILL still be running though
- Session cello, balalaika and other acoustic instruments
- Foley recording
- Basically anything that involves me recording with a microphone
And speaking of compositions, let's get onto the next bit of news. Last week, I composed, recorded and produced a short piece called "Postcards" for a video scoring contest by Pond5 which I'm very pleased with. It's just over a minute long and is in a genre I've never really worked with before, Post Rock, though I've listened to a lot of it in the past. Very fun and I hope to share it with you next week once the competition has come to an end and the winners have been announced. Hope you like it and stay tuned for next week to hear it in full!
That's it for this week. I imagine these next few months are going to be a little crazy, but already there are a few cool things in the pipeline so I hope to share those soon. In the mean time, hope you all have a good week to come and stay tuned for the new track "Postcards" coming next week. Thanks as always for supporting JabunAudio and until next time, take care!
