Hey Adrian: the track sounds great!! It really sounds "film-ic"! This was done at CBC in Toronto, right? Did Scott Carpenter engineer the session? It must have been a huge rush to hear your music come alive. Did you do a synth mock-up? You saying these students sight-read your stuff down cold after 5 minutes will give the RMALA big headaches at the other end! Bravo!
Thanks, glad you enjoyed the new tracks. All the stuff - the orchestration/editing/mixing/mastering is me - I have to answer for all of it. :) A good engineer is something I am currently on the hunt for (along with a good entertainment lawyer) - I spend a lot of time editing midi, mixing, etc, which I could pass off in favor of spending more time composing. While I really enjoy those aspects, I do have a bit of a case of 'do-it-all-itis', plus a good second set of ears is invaluable.
Although I was a composition faculty member, I was really never interested in composing. I much preferred teaching theory and arranging. To paraphrase Artie Shaw, 'you write it and I'll see what I can do with it.'
The hubby will be at an academic conference. I'll be left to my own devices to wander the city. I'm embarrassed to say that I've never been to Canada, but I have family on the US side of the falls. What's the weather like up there in early/mid July?
ah... so here i find you all!
consorting and organizing some kind of "kitchy click".
i feel sooo alone.
just me and my ipod earbuds and this palm tree under an orange fiery sky.
whoa is me.
"what's that over there?!
if only you could see the sights I behold!
it's the most incredible thing you ever did see!
so incredible! I think I deserve THE most incredible kitchy-click nick!"
Greetings from NYC! The weather here has been crazy! It was cold on Tuesday, hot yesterday, cold this morning, hot now! I still need to sign up for Smalley if there's still room. Hey, I'll be in Toronto early next month, and I've never been! Can I prime you for info?
