St. Patrick's Catholic School, Rockville, MD

At St. Patrick's Catholic School, Rockville, MD one of the traditions for the graduating 8th graders is to sing the unofficial school song: Lori True's "May The Road Rise To Meet You," (based on the old "Irish Blessing") at their graduation ceremony.

In these very weird times we find ourselves living in, unfortunately, that wasn't going to be possible this year.

Still, Jill Fecko, the music teacher at St. Patrick's, wanted to make sure that this tradition could still be observed with a "virtual choir" video.

As all sorts of performance groups have been "forced underground" by the pandemic, there are all sorts of examples of these kinds of videos on the web these days. Unfortunately, virtual choir videos can be tricky to produce, especially with large numbers of non-professional singers involved. The school reached out to us at Undisclosed Location Studios • Arlington, VA / News At Eleven Productions for help.

Working with Jill Fecko, we:
• Coordinated and planned the "raw materials" for the virtual recording sessions, including how to make custom reference tracks for the students to sing to, and how to come up with a strategy for keeping all 33 videos (and their soundtracks!) in proper sync during the editing process.
• Generated a "proof of concept" reference video with a couple of early test recordings to confirm that the planned process would work, and would be "doable" for young, non-technical performers to record without outside assistance or special equipment.
• Edited and mixed the audio soundtrack, which involved cleaning up and suppressing background noise from computer fans, air conditioning and -- yes, even the sound of birds and wildlife outside one student's open window!
• Assembled the final video, ensuring that each student's on-camera performance stayed in sync with the recorded soundtrack. In the final "grid" tableau, 32 videos had to be trimmed and adjusted to correctly play in lip-sync with the mixed song.

We are pleased to share the final result with you. Congratulations to the St. Patrick's Class of 2020 -- wherever the road may lead you!

A special farewell from the Class of 2020. Wishing all of our families a very restful and healthy summer. “...and until we meet again, may you keep safe in the gentle, loving arms of God.” 🎼❤️☘️

Congratulations to Electric Lady Studios on 49 years of unforgettable music! We at ULS are proud to be a (very!) small part of WSDG Walters-Storyk Design Group's legacy of incredible recording studios!

Aug 26, 1970: Electric Lady first opened its doors. Still servicing the very best in the music today - Still making music history! Congratulations Electric Lady Studios from all of us in WSDG 🎉
John Storyk was a young graduate in NY who just finished the design of a nightclub... a nightclub where Jimi Hendrix used to hang out a lot... and that’s how it all started. Serendipity.

Black Hole Boombox

Black Hole Boombox are clients of our studio, and we’re really enjoying our work with them! Know any DC-based keyboard players that might want to join them? Pass it on!

Seeking keys for original multi-influenced rock outfit!

Black Hole Boombox seeks a keyboard player to help in continuing our mission to write original compositions and perform locally. Prefer a classical education with some knowledge of synthesizers.

Song influences vary widely and a deliberate effort is made to incorporate structural and melodic aspects from classical music, rock and other genres where it fits the songs.

Consider Queen, Muse, Prince, Miles Davis to be strong influences. We rehearse once a week in Rockville and perform about once a month locally.

We are in the midst of mixing our first album! Pre-mix samples available, as are demos for upcoming songs. Please get in touch or send us recommendations. Thanks!

We are thrilled to discover that Greg Munford lives in our neighborhood! Greg sang lead vocals on "Incense and Peppermints" for Strawberry Alarm Clock in 1967. Greg stopped by today with another neighbor, Bill Fahey, and we spent a really fun hour talking studios, music, and the music industry. Nice to meet you Greg! Glad to be neighbors!

Nice.  9-year old me would have totally loved this.
