Chapter 4 – Record In Hand
Written by Jason Sadlowski
A much need pizza break is taken after Luke’s song is tracked. A change of pace comes to the project with Jay’s song Record In Hand. Less is more on this quiet track where the NOVELS show that they also know how to slow it all down. Will teaches the class how to bow a vibraphone.
NOVELS The Movie takes you inside a 24 hour marathon recording session at Chemical Sound with five of Canada’s top young pop musicians. Tokyo Police Club's Graham Wright, Will Currie of Will Currie and The Country French, and Luke Lalonde of Born Ruffians team up with Dean Marino of Tin Star Orphans and Jason Sadlowski of Chemical Sound to write, collaborate and record a 5 song EP in one day.
Heavily influenced by Wilco: I Am Trying To Break Your Heart and 6015 Willow, filmmaker Wade Vroom takes you through this unique creative process. Watch and listen as each musicians’ song evolves from an acoustic pitch to the other NOVELS members, into a fully realized collaborative recording.
