Live near NYC?? Want to be on the new DT?? Tuesday, January 23, 2007 4:40 PM (permalink)
Hi gang,
Do you live near New York City?
Do you want to have your voice on the new Dream Theater CD?
 
If so, I'm looking for a group of about 30 or 40 people to do some "chants" for a section of one of the new songs...and I figured it be fun to offer the job to a few lucky fans!
 
Here's the deal:
At 2pm this Friday January 26th, we will let a group of you into the studio to do some yelling for us...

The place:
Avatar Studios - 441 W. 53rd St (between 9th & 10th Ave)
 
The time:
We will open the doors around 2pm.
**DO NOT** arrive any earlier than 1pm which is when the line will form....
(fans arriving earlier than 1pm will not be permitted to line up outside)

Depending on the turnout, we cannot guarantee entry to everybody.
It will be based on first come, first serve.  

You will be needed for no more than an hour, so you will be able to leave by 3pm.
 
**DO NOT** bring cameras or recording equiptment....any found will be held at the reception desk while the session takes place.
 
Also - **DO NOT** call the studio for information.
This is a place of business and they are getting annoyed by the constant phone calls coming in about this!!!
Everything you need to know is already in this post!!!
Alright, c-ya some of ya on Friday!

    Oh man that would be sweet! I do a great impression of Bullwinkle!  Ok, maybe this would be the wrong place to break that out.
    Seriously though, that would be so much fun! Too bad I live in idaho...

                    Well, if I can get out of work that day I'll definitely be down there...

                      Holy shit. That has to be the coolest fucking thing you've yet to offer us DT fans. Much respect for that, Mike. I think any forumers should have their real name and their forum name listed in the booklet.

                                Wait a second, I think we're missing the bigger picture:  "chants" ?

                                              That's such a cool idea!   How about a session in...  Edmonton Alberta too?  Oh wait!  I could contribute tracks from my home studio!!!

                                                    Hmmm I have no classes on Friday and the train ride is about an hour & a half to NY from where I live. I might have to consider this

                                                      I would skip class, and if I could find a cheap flight to New York, I'd so be there... *checking travel sites
                                                       
                                                      With my luck I would spend all that cash to get out there... then not be let in the studio.

                                                            Ugh...I'm working Friday, and I wasn't supposed to be, but I switched a date...so it's totally my fault.

                                                            I hope you all have a stellar time!
