Mixing & Mastering – a late night radio setlist
Back before streaming the closest thing was free-form FM radio DJs doing their own unique musical exploration for each show, especially the late night/overnight slots (10pm -6am). They might play non-stop before breaking in and telling you what you had been listening to for the past 45 minutes to an hour.
So I have had some ‘extra’ time on my hands over the past 12 months and used some of that to create my own set list from the band Big Blue World’s material that we were in the midst of recording before things all shut down.
Good for driving, working, dosing…
During the height of the lockdowns in 2020-2021 after too much boredom i started placing posts in the Musician’s Section of Craigslists from “non major” market areas such as Dubuque, MN or Yellow Knife, Yukon Territory offering to mix, remix or master anything anyone wanted. Everyone was a winner. I got to mix new material and they got a “finished” product that they otherwise would not normally obtain. Here are some of what came across the interwebs to me.
Romantic Pop – Charleston SC – Mastering
Rock – Worthington MN – Mix & Master
Ambient – Raleigh, NC Mastering from the original compressed m4a file/16 bit
Rap – Pensacola, FL – Mix & Master , original files were 2 compressed m4a files, one for the beats, the other for the vocal
“you have given me new perspective on my delivery ..I really enjoyed listening to what you did different…”
Americana – Mix and Master in a Tom Waits meets John Prine kind of way.. (Raleigh, NC)
Urban – Mix & Master (Nashville, TN)
Country – Mix and Master
Country, with that turn of phrase we all know on the car radio..

Pop – Mastered
Pop, with that turn of phrase we all enjoy (N. CA)
Novelty – Mastered
Not quite Studio activity , but, after 8 months, finally got to do live sound again in a large field surrounded by trees at the Whip Poor Will Festival 2020 on Sat Sept 19. Just to get air moving from a PA was a thrill! Plus the surrounding trees added wonderful dispersion/reflections. Future Blue and Truffle played all afternoon on a beautiful sunny day. Plenty of space for everyone, but almost felt “normal”. So good to feel.
recording is mostly ORTF stereo mics at board location (60 ft from stage) with individual tracks mixed in as needed.

I played the monochord and Koto and recorded it in Marin, CA in the 1990s. And am sorry to say that I have forgotten the names of the the two musicians who played the Shakuhachi and the Digeridoo.
