Weehawken, NJ (May 16, 2005)–Stevens Multimedia, based at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken NJ, launched a new student run record label, Castle Point Records, as part of their Music & Technology curriculum led by David Musial. The label signed two NYC-area bands, Last Perfect Thing and John Connor, to record and mix tracks at HarariVille Studios.
Rob Harari teamed up with the guitarist Carlos Alomar to produce the sessions. Harari engineered and Chris Speich assisted on the sessions. Castle Point Records’ dual cd/dvd disc titled Delusions of Grandeur is scheduled for release in October 2005.
The Brooklyn band Kittyhawk recorded basic tracks for their upcoming release From The Mouths of Babes on Curious Records. The project is being produced by Pier Giacalone. Harari engineered the sessions with assistance from John Adams.
And, 11-piece band Swingadelic has taken on recording for two albums to be released later this year. Led by Dave Post, the ensemble is comprised of metro area jazz, Broadway and blues players and has performed at NJ PAC, Lincoln Center and many dance gigs.
