mixing day 1:

March 2, 2010

hey chuck,

back in LA now mixing champ. i thought i’d keep you posted on how things are coming along as we mix each song so you can get in on “Champ: The Making of a Miracle”. the first day was spent under house arrest in silverlake as enough wasps to fill a miniature wasp sized arena sieged my friends’ house. initially traded as a hostage for supplies, i escaped to Sonora studios to get to work.

we just finished the mix for “gone”, which is somewhere in my top ten favourite songs on the record. it has sort of a cycling two line chorus and a bunch of stabby guitars and big/phat drums that keeps it moving and makes me want to get a ray bans and a ’59 corvette (but not my driver’s license). definitely feels like the los angeles summeriness got in there. some toronto-iness also did as it features our first ever hometown shoutout. what else – glitchy keys, vocal harmonies, white noise.


add that up, carry the one and you have your first glimpse, however wildly subjective and inaccurate, into “Champ: Album for the Ages”. i’ll update again tomorrow when we delve into another track.
