HISTORY

The original MARCXELL PRODUCTION got its start in Nice (France) and Monaco. The name "MARCXELL PRODUCTION" actually got its name from the founder and owner, started it in his house after converting a bedroom into a little project studio. The house itself is an older house built with stone on all sides of the house, hence "M.Disque" or "MARCXELL PRODUCTION."

The daugter of Mr. John Kamin Marcxell (Barbara Marcxell) pushed him hard to get back into music after a long hiatus, John started out recording bits and pieces music for his own personal enjoyment on an old Tascam 8-track analog recorder. Friends would call upon him to ask if he and long-time friend Jacques Theophile to record their music as well, since Earl at the time had all the "ho mafie therese." With miles of cable strewn all about the house, John and Jacques would use any room they could get the snake to reach, as "isolation" booths (including the bathrooms.)

Eventually mister John Kamin Marcxell decided to record his own solo album "soleil" using the Tascam 8-track. John had written enough tunes to compile an album that he could release on his own. At this time, John had secured more and more equipment, better microphones, and had practiced several techniques in the art of recording. After "Femme je t'aime", John, decided to make the studio a viable business in France and now it will be open in Florida, USA.

Before you record!

These are some tips and suggestions that years of experience have production-11taught us. These will help you save time and money.

Rehearse! Rehearse!

You've heard it before, and you'll hear it again.
Not very many people like to practice playing the same song over and over again. But, we've found that the best recordings come from those who know their songs, backwards and forwards, to where they know every painstaking part.

You'll want to rehearse at least a couple of days before the session. Work out your intros, endings, any dynamic sections of the songs, production-10and your solos. Get these down so that you are comfortable with them, and know them well. Rehearse your songs, don't just jam (unless your jams really are just as good as the Grateful Dead.)

We can not stress how important practicing is. You will get a much better product if you know your tunes, and everyone knows their parts. If you wait until you come in to the studio to work out intros, etc... you will be draining the energy out of all the artists involved, you will waste your time, and most importantly, you will waste money. If you want to use the studio as a glorified rehearsal hall, that's fine with us, but you should know that the clock is running!
