[theprp.com] Former Isis drummer Aaron Harris has a number of interesting new projects in the works. Speaking via his new website, he revealed that he has been working with former Isis bandmates on some new demos. He also mentioned that he’s involved in another project with Jeff Boyle from Jakob and will also be overseeing some of the production for Pelican’s new EP.
Here’s what he had to say on his immediate plans:
Jeff Caxide, Bryant Clifford Meyer, and I have been playing together fairly regularly. We have some pretty solid ideas that we’ve been working on and demoing. This, for obvious reasons, has been very fun and exciting for me. I really enjoy playing with the both of them. I can’t say what it’s sounding like, or where it’s heading just yet, but it’s been really great creating with those guys again.
Jeff Boyle from Jakob and I have been exchanging music files via the internet. We have a handful of tracks that we’re picking away at. I’m very excited about this. I love Jeff’s playing. He and his band mates in Jakob can do no wrong. We don’t have a name for this project, and it’s slowly moving along (Jakob is writing a new record!), but it’s one that I’m really enjoying and anticipating.
There’s a bunch of ISIS stuff that I’m working on at the moment. We have a lot of live sets that need mixing and a few other little treats that we’ve been preparing for a future release. I have a few multi-track recordings that I did from various ISIS tours capturing a nice range of our catalog. It’s been enjoyable and a bit emotional to work on these recordings.
I’m tracking some stuff for Pelican later this month for a new EP that they’re working on. The plan right now is for Larry and Bryan to do drums and bass with me here at my studio in Los Angeles, and Trevor and Laurent to do guitars in Chicago. Can’t wait to do this and hear some new Pelican songs. I always look forward to that!
I’ll also be mixing Pelican at the Troubadour here in Los Angeles on Oct 30th. They’re doing a couple of 10 year anniversary shows (one in Chicago, one in LA). I’m happy to be a part of that.
There’s some other great stuff in the works that I’ll be revealing soon. An amazing opportunity to work for one of my favorite drummers in January 2011. Also teaming up with a good friend and talented producer/engineer here in Los Angeles.
Thanks for reading and stopping by! -Aaron“
