Peak Bootcamp : Day #3

Day three is upon us and I feel like we are starting to get the hang of this boot camp regiment and settle into a routine. Last night we went into the makeshift recording studios (fantastically set up by the magicians at Nimbus School of the Recording Arts) to record a song we wrote for the Vancouver 125 celebration. We plugged away all night, some of us until 5:30 in the morning, and are very happy with how it went. The ruthless Peak Performance Project schedule had us out of bed again at the regular 7:30am so “free time” today is looking like it might turn into “nap time”.

In a nutshell day three broke down like this: breakfast / three back-to-back-to-back seminars with Bob D’Eith from Music BC, Natasha Duprey from S.L. Feldman & Associates about music licensing, and Brent Bain from FACTOR about music grants / Lunch / Then free time where we spent most of our time with Shawn Cole and Paul Boechler working on pre-production for our song for Vancouver 125 / Mattlock and Swamp Grant made it to the zip line (2nd longest in Canada!) at the end of free time before we headed to Law 101, again with Bob D’Eith / We ended the seminar part of the day with Lynn Ross from SOCAN / Dinner / the nightly showcases with the Oh WellsAvairis41st and Home and the Boom Booms / After the showcases we headed back to the studios to sacrifice our shut-eye for some more snarky comments from Shawn Cole recording.

A well deserved nap looks like it may be on the horizon for some of us this free time period, but the call of the pool is sounding very enticing.
