Brian and Andrei wrote all the music for Legacy during their first two years at Chapman. Recording began in 2008 with Piano followed by Guitars. Mark Buchner (Bass), Alison Vance (Vocals), Ryan Hunter (Backing Vocals, Bass & Irish Whistle) and Marco Minnemann (Drums) were the studio musicians Andrei brought on board to record the remaining parts. They each learned all the songs and formulated their parts sometimes just hours before recording.
This was a very unconventional way to record an album - especially with drums (typically recorded first) being the last instrument recorded. Each instrument was recorded in various home studios owned by the musicians on this album. The recorded tracks were submitted to Andrei who compiled and sent them to Ryan Hunter for mixing. The album was mixed in Fall 2011 and mastered by Joachim 'Eroc' Ehrig in December 2011.
Today Forward Shapes exists in their debut album. All musicians who played on Legacy live in different cities and are pursuing various musical and non-musical endeavors. There are no immediate plans to play live or go on tour. All efforts are currently focused on promoting and sharing the music with as many willing listeners as possible.
