Mixing and mastering is complete. We've entered the final production stage and are projecting a mid-March release. We're rehearsing for live shows which will include material that is not on our debut cd. Stay tuned...


Happy New Year! All recording is complete. We've entered the final mix stage and expect to have it done in a few weeks. Then on to Mastering. The CD booklet and design is complete. We're anticipating a late February release.



Ahhh...the sweet tone (and crunch) of the Mesa Boogie...Peter nearly finished his guitar tracks during a 12 hour session this past weekend.
Intensity would be an understatement. Pete's back in the studio next weekend to finish up. Dan, Ken and Phil will follow with a few "touch-ups" and then the mixing will begin in December. CD booklet design has commenced. The CD will be self titled. Here's the track listing:

1. Thoracic Park
2. Welcome to the Edge
3. Obsession
4. It Can't Be So
5. Obsidian
6. Batovich
7. Bio-Freez
8. For All Time

The band has recently invested in new gear and after many hours in the studio, has resumed rehearsals for the live set.


Dan completed his keyboard tracking on Saturday during a ferocious, freak, October heavy, wet snow storm which knocked down trees and took out power throughout the area. Fortunately, we did not lose power in the studio and after 12 hours - the keys are essentially done. (Speaking about ferocity, just wait until you hear the solo in Obsession:) Ken will lay down his final bass tracks within a week or so, followed by final guitar tracking on 11/12. Then on to mixing.  Starting to scope out prospective gigs in the area.  Stay tuned...



Update on our first CD. Many hours were logged in the studio this past weekend as we recorded the basic tracks for the remaining songs for the CD. Exhausting but fun and fulfilling. Life is good. Additional keyboard and guitar tracking will occur over the next several weeks, followed my mixing, mastering and ultimately, CD production. There will be a total of 8 tunes on the disc, clocking in at a little over 1 hour. We are aiming to have it complete and available, early in 2012.



Greetings and welcome!  Thanks for visiting our site.  Take a look around.   Carpe Nota is an original, instrumental progressive rock band based in the Philadelphia, PA area.  We are currently finishing up the recording of our debut CD which will be released early in 2012.  Stay tuned.  We are also on Facebook.  We will be posting updates here for live shows and look forward to seeing you on the road.  Rock on!
