All acoustic concert at Soupanova

We had a great, albeit challenging concert last Thursday night at Soupanova in our own neighbourhood of Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin. Recently we have opted to do away with the cables, amps and microphones in favour of all acoustic concerts. Not always a good idea when you find yourself competing with a raucous crowd celebrating a birthday and having downed a healthy dose of beer before the concert. Here we are performing "Take Me Home", taking the song to the audience to help them focus more on the music and less on the beer...

Mixing...

The mix session was really hard... but we did it!! So, now, mastering... and... rock'n'roll with the new record!

The making of...“Romeo”!

Clowning around in the studio, recording Edwina's song “Romeo”. It all looks like fun until Enrico walks out after the fifth take thinking we are never going to keep a straight face long enough to get it recorded. But we did it!

The making of... “Berlin”!

Here is the first of our series of The making of... clips which take you with us into the studio so that you can share some of the experience of making the Berlin Sessions. We'd like our friends to be a part of this journey. Comments welcome! The first glimpse is of Deko's guitars on his song, Berlin.

DEKO live!

What a nice surprise! Thanks to my friend Simone Buttazzi, co-author along with Gabriella Di Cagno of the fantastic guidebook Tutti a Berlino, perfect for Italians struggling to navigate German bureaucracy. This is part of my performance before the discussion with the audience about the book and what it means to be an Italian in Berlin. Thank you Simone!

Work in progress...

We are currently working on the graphics of our new CD "Berlin Sessions" with Vincenzo Mariella, our Berlin-based photographer and videographer. In true "Berlin" spirit, the packaging is going to be simple and handmade. Preview on its way. Watch this space...

Nice concert!

Thanks to all our friends (known and unknown) who decided to join us for our concert at Laika in Berlin Neukölln last night! It was a great "Italian" atmosphere there, thanks to Ercole Gentile and the staff of the Italian online magazine Il Mitte, who asked us play at the first Mitte Nacht event. We love Berlin!



On Facebook...

In Studio...

So, we now have our Blog! This is where you can read all the news about our project "E.D.", Edwina & Deko (Edwina Dunn & Enrico Decolle). We have just spent three days recording in studio in Berlin and will soon be ready to release our joint CD, "Berlin Sessions". We plan to launch the CD on tour in Italy in April 2013.
It was an amazing experience and we would like to thank everyone who made it possible: Tobias Neugebauer for his fabulous sound and studio, Jacopo Vannini for his great ideas and support in production and Vincenzo Mariella for the photography.
Now it's time to mix and then...let's see, as Edwina always says ;-)
We are still on the road, of course, with our next concert on Thursday 21 March @ Soupanova, Berlin.



Stay tuned!
