    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one.” – Dr. Spock (Star Trek). So it was that I received an email asking me this question; “Is it acceptable to cut/pull back certain instruments when their sound doesn’t fit well with the rest of the group?” Before I go any further, I should note the question wasn’t clear as to why the sound doesn’t fit.  Therefore,… View this post

I make this assertion having just returned from an adventure in the Middle Kingdom, observing production of a large western-style music festival in Shanghai, China. Shanghai is a modern and global city with 23 million people, some of the tallest buildings anywhere, and the world’s largest public transport system. On the surface it’s the epitome of the modern Asian metropolis. But as a friend who lives… View this post
