I am happy to report I am on the other side of the ADC Project. I ended up with 26 mixed tracks. I mixed the vocals over an album by the Abbasi Brothers (an insanely talented outfit out of New York City). I was really enjoying how the pieces were shaping up, but I wasn't sure the vox/music combo would work for my sister and her Compassionate Friends (I tend to have a different aesthetic taste). To deliver some options, I ended up bouncing all thirteen tracks naked and with the music (director's cut!). Real-time bouncing always adds a thousand years to a project, so it ended up being somewhat epic. I could cut out the real-time listening, but I hate working in anything other than Pro Tools. So I continually commit to adding a thousand years to every project. All in all, I was happy to help my sister out. She deserves it.
Here are three tracks for your listening pleasure. The first is an example of the final product, with the music bed. I created the second mostly for my own entertainment. I have always loved the cacophony of sound in crowds. I find it closer to music than speech. As I was working, I forgot to solo a track I was editing. Consequently, I heard every track simultaneously. Delicious! And the third is my favorite outtake from the recording session with my brother Derek. Once you get me started...
Example of final product: "After-Death Communication: Symbols"
Vox: Crys Aigner and Derek Kelly, Music: The Abbasi Brothers
Vox: Crys Aigner, Derek Kelly, Colleen Kelly
My favorite production outtake!
In which my brother and I (it is mostly one-sided, I admit) can't seem to keep it together.
