THE MARS VOLTA Amputechture CD
The partnership between Omar Rodriguez-Lopez [who wrote and arranged all music and directs the group] & Cedric Bixler-Zavala [who wrote all lyrics and vocal melodies] is The Mars Volta.
This album was recorded in Los Angeles California, Melbourne Australia, and El Paso Texas. It was worked on using the E-Clat Disaster Portable Morgue Unit by the patient engineering talents of Jonathon Debaun, Robert Carranza, and Paul Fig. Then mixed in New York City by Rich Costey with Pablo Arraya assisting. It was eventually mastered right down the hall by Vlado Meller. The cover and label paintings [Big Mutant and Dwarf Dancing, respectively] are by Jeff Jordan and the overall layout by Sonny Kay. This coordination was made possible by Kristen Elizabeth Welsh, the caretaker of Monkey Island. All saxophone parts and solos on Meccamputechture played by Sara Christina Gross.
