Going live...
Well the SOS site is finally up and running with a nice selection of studio and live recordings. There are also a few post-production mixes done for Paul Kagawa's nice videos of local jazz singers, and one simple "music video" for a talent competition. I will be recording live with Paul next month at Silo's with another group of very talented musicians and singers. I will provide two stereo feeds to Paul directly while recording a multitrack session to ProTools in case some of the singers would like further mixing and mastering of the sound track. Things are moving along at SOS and I'm looking forward to more enjoyable and creative work with local musicians and singers.
