Re: Some Jazzy stuff

So just learning with falling and standing up again.

That's often the best way...falling can hurt and nothing inspires improvement more than pain.

Here is my submission for the 2004 DUC deal, for now.

'Moonbeam Seduction'

Re: Some Jazzy stuff
HOORAY ROY!!! The drones of fans have been requesting your elusive entry!!! "Moonbeam Seduction" is now included on the webpage.

A general update on the project:

Special thanks go out to BigBubbaJ for donating the site design...his talent in this department is now up and visible to all at the new location for the project:
Best of the DUC: 2004

We are currently at 13 entries and approximately 54 minutes of music. As usual, all are invited to check it out...there's some really incredible entries...I know it's going to spend several hours in my player!

I'd personally like to apologize for not giving this topic it's own thread yet...I promise, one is coming soon...I've just been swamped trying to get a head start on this and other projects.

To anyone who hasn't done so yet, please try to make arrangements for me to get the unmastered bounces...I think that's only 4 tunes right now. Getting them to me as early as possible will go a long way to ensuring the quality of the final master (and has already done so in a few cases).

SimpleNatureSpirit has been appointed point-man for the graphics on this project after graciously volunteering for the duty. He's made it clear to me that he's welcoming artwork from anyone who'd like to submit something in that department. This is a great chance to get "included" in this project even if you feel that you don't currently have something to submit in the way of music. I encourage anyone who may be interested in supplying some of their own artwork to contact me so I can get you in touch with SNS to work it all out. Keep in mind though...SNS is the executive producer in this dept...what he say's goes and is not in any way meant to be taken personally. If there is simply too much artwork supplied for the album, the means of determining what will be used will be entirely up to him (he's hinted at possibly voting on the artwork in much the same way that songs will be voted on if enough entries come in for that).

If you feel there may be some other way in which you can contribute, DO NOT HESITATE to contact me.

Once again, thanks to all of you that have contributed to this project...it's gearing up to go down as one of the "Great Moments in DUC History"! (that was meant to be read in a bigdeepbellowingmoviepreviewvoice-over style )

Cheers to all,

Re: Some Jazzy stuff

I had mixed this song earlier this year...Chris Cavell just mastered it. Great job, Chris...

Re: Some Jazzy stuff
Hey folks, I wanted to get your impressions and some feedback on this:

In my current state of unemployment, I've been sending out what seems like hundreds of resume's hoping to pick up a steady gig not too far from where I currently live. I was pretty pumped when I got a call from who is probably the most well known engineer in this state...but my excitement was short lived. He said he took a gander at my website upon receiving the resume and had some advice: that I make what was my resume page and unlink it (but keep it up...just give the address to interested potential clients), putting in it's place "reels" as opposed to full songs given the high stature of one or two of the tunes that were available previously (currently owned by a company known for their animated films), stating that even though the songs in question were performed live on stage by the original artist and I had received permission from him, the big D could still hose me if they felt so inclined and the risk probably wasn't worth it. He added that skirting the potential legal troubles with "reels" is common practice for today's freelance engineer and strongly urged me to do the same.

So, I took his advice...made a couple of "reels" and put them up on the linked page.

I'd appreciate any feedback on them...whether the clips are a good representation of my work...if any suck and shouldn't be included...if the volume levels from one clip to the next aren't too astonishing, etc...

I'd really appreciate any comments that you might have on these.

You can get to my audio resume through my website link in my sig...or directly to it here .

Re: Some Jazzy stuff

That is some awesome work. You are very talented. Fades are smooth. Nice ending on the Center stage one. Behind the glass has amazing sound quality, even in mp3 format. Was listening on my studio monitors and my reaction was "WOW". Makes me want to hear more, which seems to be the point or these reels.

The reels speak for themselves to the above.

Nice website

Re: Some Jazzy stuff
Just did a remix of God Rest Ye Gerry Mentlemen . Levels are much better, not sure about the overall eq though.


Like bigbubbaj says, everything sounds great, very pro sounding. I find it hard to beleive you're looking for work with talent like that. Hopefully something will come your way soon.

Thanks guys. Maybe I'll get lucky...you never know. If I can't get a job very soon , I'm probably going to move to Lafayette. Pop's is getting a Job in Austin so my bro and I will take over the house there until he graduates. There aren't any studios in the area, but there is a seriously happening music scene in all genres...I'm going to contact the conductor of the symphony there and try to pick that up as a gig...I don't think anyone records it right now.
