Since I was born in the 1970's and have always been fond of the funk tunes that came from that era, I set out to record a seventies-style funk instrumental album in my basement recording studio (which I affectionately call the Flower Pot). This album has a very organic feel to it, using complex arrangements of live instruments, analog and digital synthesizers, and a variety of recording procedures. The results are an album that definitely captures the energy of 1971 but the subtle nuances of a modern recording. Each track is segued with random conversations with friends that I recorded at my coffee table (with their knowledge, of course!).

Recording Notes:
Recorded 2005-2006 at the Flowerpot Recording Studio in Seattle using an 8-track reel-to-reel analog tape, 32 channel mixing consul and Tascam stand-alone CD recorder. Instrumentation used includes a whole host of acoustic instruments including Gretsch drums, Guild guitar, Fender guitar, custom bass, Bundy trumpet and lots of little percussive things. Synthesizers used include the Roland Juno-106 and Roland JX-8P analog synthesizers, the Korg DSS-1 sampling synthesizer, the Korg Poly-800, the Access Virus C, and a variety of software synthesizers.

All instruments composed, performed, and recorded by Supaflower. The in-between bits feature a bunch of my close friends - Angela Roth, Terry Kildal, Erin Hockett, Hannah Ahmed, Katie Learned, Terri Sandusky, and my grandparents and father.
