Peter on ‘Ones and Ohs’: “There are limits to technological connectivity and there are consequences to design for profit. Over the years, as we increasingly edit and upload our personalities through our devices, I’ve sunk deeper into habits of excessive phone use. I’ve got The Scroll. With the world constantly at our fingertips, every spare moment is a potential impression for advertisers. The uneasiness of stillness, of absence, of understanding, is easily replaced in a moment’s notice by a handheld screen with a worldful of jokes, beauty, and sometimes just another voice to fill your room.”
Quick facts from Peter:
– I recorded the album mostly alone in a cabin near Nashville, IN
– The cabin had a pond and a wooded+hilly 60 acres
– It’s the first project I’d ever mixed, mastered, and seen out the door myself
– I traded files with musicians, some of whom I’ve never met in person, to record what I
needed a hand with, including Dan Bailey (drums, LA), Shannon Hayden (cello, Cali), Aaron Goldstein (pedal steel, Toronto), Laur Joamets (guitars, Nashville/ ATL), and Diederik Van Wassenauer (strings, Netherlands).
– I had friends and local players join me for a few sessions, especially Mark Edlin, who played drums and helped with overall insight and feedback.
