Mixing it up
The last couple of sessions at The Playroom have focused on balancing and mixing Dakar and No Wind. Mike Guest has created videos of the recording of both pieces, and the next part of the process is to match the final mixes to these.
Mike Saunders and I also worked on Muito Obrigado, and were joined by Tom Phelan to work on a new piece called Sea and Sky, which will complete the album. Tom played piano on the tune and created a new section based on my ostinato string arrangement.
The next session will be to record drums on the new piece, and continue balancing and mixing the other tracks.
