Preview: Triptych CD recording sessions

This is your invitation to attend a CD recording session at Blank Studios in Shieldfield, Newcastle. Over two nights - tomorrow and Wednesday - Triptych will be recording material with a view to releasing an album and you can be there as a member of the studio audience!

Triptych - Paul Edis (piano, keyboards), Paul Susans (bass) and Rob Walker (drums, percussion) - is an occasional performance vehicle for three of the north east's most respected musicians and now you have the opportunity to observe the music making and recording process. Blank Studios are just along from the recently relocated Star and Shadow Cinema on Warwick Street in Shieldfield (if you're a 'creative' bearded hipster, that's the Ouseburn).


Tomorrow (Tuesday) it would be advisable to arrive at about 7:30pm as the session is due to begin with a short support set at 8:00pm by Viatores - aka Kyriaki Pantelidou and Bradley Johnston. Wednesday's session will observe a similar format with an opening set by Callum Mellis and Brent March.

Blank Studios can accommodate a small audience, so, if you want to play your part - you never know, audible participation may be encouraged! - then grab a ticket (£8) now. See the link below.
