You may have noticed I have not been talking about my live taping from August and the DVD/CD product that was supposed to be available at Thanksgiving. The plans were to be taking orders for it now and shipping for Christmas.
We have entered the part of a recording project that every recording artist dreads: mixing and editing. This project is certainly no exception, and there are more factors to consider in this one because it was a live concert recording.
Last night, we recorded my new project Looking Up here at the beautiful Gwinnett Performing Arts Center in Atlanta. From my perspective, it was a fabulous night. We had a great and receptive crowd, the musicians played and looked great, and the technical team was superb.
I recently helped a recording artist on a new project during mixing. The mixing process involves a lot of listening as the artist and engineer work together to tweak tiny things that will make the music more impactful.
In the past month, I have spoken at length about some of the orchestration stuff I am recording at the live taping in August. Today, I want to talk about one of the other songs we are doing.
It has been quiet on this blog for a few days because my producer flew in from Los Angeles for two days of meetings this week. I was with him almost constantly as we ironed out a few million details for my August taping.
