Nick D'Virgilio, Mark
Hornsby and Sonic Reality CEO Dave Kerzner recorded much of this
unique library at "Mower Studios" which was formerly known
as Kevin Gilbert's Lawnmower & Garden Studios. This room was
designed to offer a sound similar to the Townhouse studio in
London. Both Nick and Dave used to play in this room in
the mid 90's when working in Kevin Gilbert's band "Thud" and
"Giraffe" (which played a one off tribute to Genesis - The Lamb
Lies Down on Broadway" in 1994) Nick's library includes more
than 650 stereo loops, recorded in a broad range of modern
styles, feels, and time signatures. Also included are some
veritable loops reflecting D'Virgilio's influences and the music
he has played. Ample fills, variations, and tempos give
you the substance and flexibility required to take your projects
to the next level!
