Recording a Horns section with : KELLY O’DONOHUE

Maybe one of the first song Philippe & Gabriel was able to complete in 2019 “Envolez moi” started with a horn section. Using his iphone and sitting on a caffe facing the sea Philippe & Gabriel spent 5 hours straight writing various lines and melodies and harmonies. It is only when his battery ran out that he ran home to record those on Cubase. It worked. Caffe is aware of his strange music hobby and erratic behaviour. Only months later did I start looking for horns arranger and met online Kelly O’Donohue. Multi instrumentist she recorded all horns sections in the song. They tried to rearrange the piece, but I always came back to initial melody and arrangement, which you can find on the album.
