140% UNLOCKED - WE are bringing you inside the studio LIVE...

22 / 01 / 2017
WOW what an incredible fan-base we have. The support we have gained across the making of this album as a 100% independent act in every way possible is truly inspiring. It seems nothing is impossible. We are beginning to surpass even our wildest dreams on the making of this album and this epic pledge campaign. We are now even closing in on breaking records as the most funded Aussie band on the pledge platform with news today with have raised over 140% in album funds. Thank you for believing in TRP.

As a HUGE thank-you we are bringing you all into a 14hr FACEBOOK LIVE feed studio session. Yep, even you get to witness

the tedious task of setting up an album for mix stages doing what is called "COMPING”. People have been asking me. What is album Comping? Why are you doing it? Why does it take so long?

Here are some answers...

Comping is an editing process where you listen to all the material you have recorded and piece together the best parts of every take to make it all one coherent, seamless, and perfect stem/track. This is done so in the final Mix stages the Mix engineers I work with only have to worry about working with the best parts of the album and it makes their job super easy and creative. Well that’s the plan anyway.

And this is what I have been doing over the past 2 weeks and it's probably been the most HARDEST and chore like process of making this record. As the producer of the album it is something I can’t get out of because at the end of the day I am the one chasing what needs to be heard and felt. It has so far been 5 months in the making with really no time to take a break and rejuvenate.  Even I admit this album was more ambitious then I first thought.

The process has been a learning curve to day the least however having to do these long tedious sessions joined with the general pressure of making an album can be frustrating and can start to take its toll.  Alix and I have had added stresses to deal with and at one point everything became so overwhelming that I was holding the album hard drives over a public rubbish bin ready to throw it all in and disappear for a while. Thankfully I didn't and that inner voice as well as the voice of all The Red Children inspired me to carry on and well, today is a new day. Today feels better. It's hard for anyone to understand what making an album entails. Especially one this vast. But we're going to do it and you're getting to join us on the journey.

Our next goal is 150%. Giving us the chance to work with some of the most sort out Mix engineers in the biz and also help us begin production into some innovative music video ideas. We will be adding some new items and experiences over the next week at www.pledgemusic.com/theredpaintings

Join us tomorrow from around noon Los Angeles time LIVE on The Red Paintings | Facebook and inside a production suite studio for a long day and night of album clean ups

We will be going LIVE on The Red Paintings FB on Mon 23 Jan!!! Tune in at 8pm GMT London time (6am Brisbane, Australia 12 noon California time). Again thank you and See you then!

130% UNLOCKED - NEW Orchestral Recording Session: Mini-documentary released...

13 / 01 / 2017
Congratulations and a MASSIVE thank you for getting us to 130%. You have unlocked the 3rd door and are keeping us working to make you an album of epic proportions. As promised here is the next bonus material release. We would also like to send out a very loving and warm thank you to Judy Humphries for playing a huge part in getting us over the edge to unlock this 3rd door. I have been doing super long 13hr days that have been taking their toll on me so when i woke to this news I have to admit the tears came a gushing. It’s overwhelming to see how much people actually care about us. We are very humbled by your support, hard-work and dedication to keeping the TRP dream and vision true and alive. It’s been a hard week to say the least (With TRP van being broken into and a lot of gear stolen) so this news certainly helps to keep a positive head space and push through all the negatives. – Trash McSweeney

Okay lets begin….

Enjoy the ride and hear some NEW TRP songs in the making….

After 7 months of rigorous writing, arranging and editing The Red Paintings finally hit the studio with a 14-piece orchestra to bring the symphonic side of the band’s material to life. This 11 minute mini-documentary provides an in depth look into the recording session that is bringing The Red Paintings’ new album to another level….

“We want to show people a side of The Red Paintings that they don’t often get to see. Months of preparation went into this session so we’re excited to give pledgers a glimpse of the inner workings of the band. It’s truly exhilarating to witness all the elements coming together in the studio. This video demonstrates inspiring teamwork which, in addition to the amazing support from fans and pledgers, made all of this possible.” – Alix Kol (violinist of The Red Paintings)
