Los Angeles (December 17, 2004)–Oasis just finished a month of overdubs and mixing in The Village’s Studio A with producer Dave Sardy and engineer Greg Gordon, assisted by Andy Brohard. At the same time, Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and and guitarists Twiggy Ramirez and Gem Archer, worked with longtime engineer Alan Moulder (with Jason Wormer assisting), in Studio D, tracking, overdubbing and mixing for a new album.
Nine Inch Nail members Trent Reznor (standing), Twiggy Ramirez, and Gem Archer have been working in The Village’s Studio D on an upcoming NIN album with engineer Alan Moulder (pictured at the board.)
Moulder really felt at home when Billy Corgan dropped into the Village to do some co-writing with Courtney Love for her new album, as once upon a time he and Corgan spent quite a bit of time at the Village together, recording Smashing Pumpkins’ Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. In the meantime, Liz Phair took over Studio B to cut a new record with producer Dino Meneghin, engineer Joe Zook and assistant engineer Jeff Robinette. Illustrating the community vibe at the Village, Phair borrowed a signature Stratocaster from Reznor for one of her tracks.
In other news, this year’s Grammy nominations include many projects worked on at The Village, including the Cold Mountain soundtrack, Usher’s Confessions, Keb’ Mo’s Keep it Simple, Bill Frisell’s Unspeakable, Janet Jackson’s Damita Jo Elvis Costello’s The Delivery Man, and more.
