|Welcome to the site that recreates the
instrumental sounds of the 1960's along with new material in the
60's style by Byron Elwell.
Chestnut Bank Productions produce instrumentals under the guise of
the Space Babes.
The Space Babes are ethereal electronic voices, created by keyboard
player, Byron Elwell. Various harmonies are created and played
through the keyboard, along with the lead instrument. They were
created to help bring new interest to instrumentals and so far it
has worked extremely well on many numbers.
When recording I do not use backing tracks. I create a suitable
rhythm and arrange the various instruments to suit the recording. I
then play the base of the song with my left hand and the melody with
my right. Effects are added as required. Drum variation can be
controlled by a foot pedal. The majority of my work is in the style
of Joe Meek, the record producer who, besides writing Telstar, wrote
and recorded many others.
