SoundCloud Part VI of the SoundCloud Sessions with Circa Survive

Circa Survive were passing by on their European tour recently so we invited them along to record our sixth SoundCloud session. As autumn is upon us a change of scenery was in order…

For this change we decided to also collaborate with a young English director, Greg Taylor, who uses SoundCloud as the basis for sending back and forth the audio within music-related film projects –

It’s a great platform for a band to send me a track we are working on and to use the timed comments to initially plan out with a band what we are looking to shoot’

– Looking for a video collaborator, drop him a track.

Another bonus comes as Circa Survive ask their fans for any questions they have via their website. You can hear all these tracks and see if they answered your question below. Head on over to the SoundCloud Sessions blog to watch the live videos of this performance.

SoundCloud Sessions are recorded in audio and video, and each session is added to the SoundCloud Sessions tumblr. If you want to keep yourself updated on our sessions, check us out on Twitter, Tumblr and/or subscribe to this WordPress blog!

Also, if you’re a musician coming to Berlin or already living in Berlin, send us a track via our DropBox below!
