Nima Kazerouni and Warren Woodward of So Many Wizards were without drummer Erik Felix during our early December shoot with the band in Echo Park, Los Angeles. After a bit of thinking, the two decided that they could still achieve the same effect if they turned back the clocks and took a page from So Many Wizards’ past. You see, originally the band was a solo project of Kazerouni’s, who achieved the effect of having an ensemble by placing television sets on stage that displayed prerecorded tracks.
On the day of our shoot, Felix’s recorded drums worked flawlessly into mix, providing the perfect atmosphere for our Buzzsessions. Check out the videos below and make sure to snag the MP3s for free as well.
‘Buzzsessions’ is a live session series made by The Wild Honey Pie. With each new episode, we travel with a different band to a different part of New York City (this one and a few others were shot in Los Angeles) and record sometimes-intimate/sometimes-wild versions of two or three songs which are given away for free.
