Mixage...


We are just completing the "mixage"of the new Cd"...N2...Yes, it's true...We have a name for it!!!! Our expert engineer, Francis Marion, works as fast as any I have ever been with in the studio. We are working on Nuendo 3.0, which is the same(maybe a newer version) program I used for The Spondoolix EP with my friend: Danny Litwin. We are also using Dreamverb hybrid technology for reverbs...The DV is pretty good for acousitc projects, and I am hopeful that this one will be sweeeeetttt!
Patrick Graham stopped by on Monday to add "udu" drum on "Mon Amiabe Catin". The udu is a sort of bulbous earthenware pot with holes in it...kind of like a big tea pot. The sounds are also "bubbly" and very cool. Stefanie Lepine was in the studio today giving us her excellet ears to balance the flute and fiddle.(You may assume I always mix with too much flute....a bit..sort of...) I will be posting samples of the mixes as they are finished before we master the CD. Tomorrow is my last day here to mix and then Saturday there is a "festival de glace" on the Assumption River in Joliette....Ice skating on the river, a bonfire and a shelter where "Des Temps Anton(√Čric Beaudry, Pierre Luc Dupuis, and Andre Brunet will play in a little shelter! My guess is it will be lovely and very cold, but sort of like a dutch renissance painting in winter. Peace and love,
Chris
