Eric Heisman and the Formation / Bio

Eric Heisman and the Formation is Joseph Gillis, David Devore and guests that join us in the studio to craft new music. The music here is all demo cuts, even the videos. Joe and Dave have been performing together since the mid-90s and have been cowriting since 2004. David has a studio where most of the work is done. David not only constructed this space to his demands, he is an amazing engineer and holds a wealth of technical knowledge. Starting each session cold, the song's; chords, lyrics and melody are composed, then; performed, mixed, edited and mastered in a matter of several hours. All tracks are recorded as duets. For example, Dave will develop a drum part for Joe's guitar strumming and this duet performance takes shape as we pick chords and set their durations. several dozen takes will lead us to the first two tracks. Then, Dave constructs the keyboard parts while Joe writes, taking much from the time we are rapping and stuff as we go through takes or as we ride around on a break where we may scribble phrases to use. Joe then sings the lyrics, working out the melody for vocals while Dave works other instrumental melodies with keys and performs them, again, several takes after we hit the changes lead us to 4 tracks. Along the way, we find ourselves playing off each other growing the composition off that interaction. Sometimes, backing vocals, random percussion, leads and assorted instrumentation is added before we start the mastering process. We edit mostly cleaning up the "recording starts and stops" and some leveling if necessary, on a track or two. They all have fades on tracks but in 60 songs or so we have one song with a "punch in" and three songs with reversed track sections. everything else is as recorded. Tom Hudson and Brit Wight have set in and composed with us so far. We hope to work with them again and others soon. (Burned Records of Ohio is joe who's been coproducing, coadvertising, and codistributing this art with Dave. David DeVore appears courtesy nebulous ink)~
