This November has been a very busy month. Here are the most significant things I've done: At the beginning of the month, I finished the sound postproduction of the documentary "Emboscats", by E2S Production. It was a remarkable experience and a pleasure to work with such creative people. The documentary will be broadcast by the Catalan TV channel TV3, another honor! I have followed the EBU R128 directive, leaving the final sound pressure level of -23LUFS.
At the beginning of 2012 I will move to New York city. I am very excited about this new adventure! I am also looking for new professional experiences in this great city. Start spreading the news I'm leaving today. I want to be a part of it, New York, New York! (Photo: Wikipedia by Daniel Scwen )
As usual, this summer I haven't had any holidays :=). Musicians love recording, and sound enginneers not having holidays ;=). Here are the highlights of the month: In July I recorded and mixed "Connexions", a single by Gest. We really worked a lot, and we got a sound with a lot of character. (Thanks Toni and Oscar, for your collaboration and patience.) In August, I recorded the second album by Koloraines. They really have a great musical talent, and they [...]
I have finished the recording and mixing of the new single "Connexions" by Gest.
The new album Se'm fica al cap (Inside my head) by Antidot is finally mixed and ready for mastering. Best wishes for Antidot and all their people!!
I have finished the recording of "Se'm fica al cap", a new ska style album by Antídot. In June, we will be mixing it. I also recorded and mixed a new and special song by Roger Mas for a TV production. It was a pleasure to remember his great "bass voice frequencies". We used a Neumann M149, and we are very happy of their performance. And now... let's go buy a book!
I wrote an article about the emotional factors in recordings that was published in the on-line magazine "Interiorisme sonor". The original text was written in Catalan, but here is the translation into English: Beyond the Music Recording Techniques: The Emotional and Psychological Factors Normally, when we start preparing a new musical production at the studio, we discuss whether it would be more convenient to record live or instrument by instrument, if we will seek a particular sound, whether the arrangements [...]
The new album Mil històries by Xenon is mixed and ready for mastering. Best wishes for Xenon!!
These last days, I have been working in a live recording sessions project at Casafont with Roger Mas and his wonderful band.
We have started the recording of "Melodia del somni", a very special project. We are recording an original soundtrack for some poems written by Toni Romero and Clara Tarrida. It's a new concept, we like to think of it as an audio boo. The project is very special because: - we don't have a timeline, - poetry with an original soundtrack... what's this? - it's my first original soundtrack as a composer, oh yeah, at last! Last week, we recorded [...]
