First Quarter Round Up
Q1 Round-Up: Well, where did that go! It is halfway through March and I had better write a blog post to keep you all up to date with developments. The months have been slow as it always is at this time of year – there is noo sunshine and this means the trek to the studio is a bit more forlorn. Still, it is better than just sitting at home doing all of this mastering.
I have been working with Focused Silence’s Artists on a number of projects. Focused Silence is the label run by myself that puts out experimental music; noise, field recordings and avant-garde Jazz. It is a lot of fun and keeps me going into town to post off the CDs and Cassettes.
There have been numerous outings for me as a Mastering Engineer with the label in the first Quarter – notably, Downtrend Shapes Renewal had a track played on National Spanish Radio. I have been told it is the equivalent of 6Music in the United Kingdom – but on an experimental radio show called Atmósfera, presented by Elena Gómez. That was quite a coup.
Then Downtrend Shapes Renewal asked me to master his side project off the back of that – which really was a pleasure.
I then set about mastering an EP called 0:00 by LI YILEI, that will appear on The Wire Tapper CD this March – very pleased with that. 30,000 CDs have been pressed of The Wire Tapper and goodness knows how many Downloads of the CD there will be. I mastered that EP.
I have also been working alongside an artist from Bratislava on their work. Total ET produces long-form soundscapes and they can be a bit tricky to master – but, I am getting quite good at it now.
Things here have been either flat out or not happening – either way I always give my clients one-hundred per cent of my time and attention until they are happy with the end product.
