The Gentlemen's club: DESMOND CHILD'S VIRTUAL AESTHETIC (832 words)
Desmond Child certainly has to be considered one of the most influential pop music composers of recent years.
That, says Charles Dye, the engineer who now oversees Child's growing studio, is the reason the composer jumped from working on a 4-track cassette deck and a Boss drum machine in his L.A. home to a three-studio complex completely outfitted with virtual recording technology.
For their debut album, Hanson sent over a minimalist piano-vocal version of a Desmond Child co-written ballad, "Weird." Dye and Child took the analog multitrack to Criteria, added live drums, then returned to The Gentlemen's Club, dumped the analog tracks into Pro Tools, and laid down guitars and background vocal parts.
