Christophe from Salival.fr emailed me today to let me know he’s just posted an interview he did with Joe Barresi regarding the recording of 10,000 Days. Nothing groundbreaking in the interview, but a good read none the less:
You’re said to be more focused on guitars, and first Danny Carey was even a little worried (tough he told he got the best sound with you). How did you manage with all his acoustic and electronic percussions ?
It was a challenge, but a great drum room, great drum techs and drums, and some time to experiment… That and a great drummer made life easy for me. He makes the drums sound good, so it wasn’t hard to capture his power and intensity.
