About the music:
The opening music on the home page is called Dan’s pop beat. This was recorded at the Say Unkel Studio in Maine in a very live room. I played this clean 4/4 beat on my 1965 Rogers Holiday drum kit. It was recorded with two Audix microphones. One was an Audix D1 for the highs and the other an Audix D6 for the lows.The mics were placed in front and back of the drum set.The music track loops and starts with the opening TaaaDaaa!

The slide show music track on the Say Unkel Watercolors is called Summer Creeps By. Recorded in and by Dan Buchert at the Say Unkel Studio.This song has many elements of live and programed loops that were produced in three years.The pieces were finally put together in early 2013. The percussion track was recorded with one AKG microphone. A Meinl cajon plus many home made shakers and other rhythm sounds were created by Say Unkel for this track.The birds songs are from my back yard and they were recorded at dawn.The guitars and other sync are looped and mixed to create a loop of music. On those hot days of August Summer Creeps By. [email protected]
The slide show music track for the Say Unkel Greeting Cards is called Music for Greeting Cards.This is a music track with multiple loops of organs, sax, percussion and other pieces.This music was created at the Say Unkel Studio in late 2012. The track starts off with a fog horn recorded in Portsmouth New Hampshire at the mouth of the Merrimack River which touched off a neighboring roster. Add in some funky beats, lounge music and you got Music for Greeting Cards. [email protected]
