Slau takes you behind the scenes at BeSharp, a recording studio in New York City. Listen to excerpts from sessions, gear reviews and equipment shootouts.

When I asked Ed Cherney to send me a photo for this blog post, this is what I got from him: OK, shortly thereafter he did supply the official picture. Ed Cherney is one of my heros. Never mind me trying to list the people he's worked with. Check it out for yourself on viagra his discography page and, better still, read his bio. He's a founding member of both the METAlliance and the Producers and Engineers wing of the Recording Academy. I couldn't possibly do him justice in a blog post. Aside from being an extraordinary talent and a vital part of the recording industry, the guy just cracks me up with his wit. On top of that, he's just the nicest guy in the world and I'm so glad I had an opportunity to do this chat with him for the podcast. I must admit, we did this quite some time ago and I never got around to publishing buy levitra canada it but pretty much everything is still relevant. Hope you guys enjoy it.

Last time Mixerman was on the show, we spoke about his book, Zen buy viagra online and the Art of mixing. This time around, we talk about his new release, zen and the Art of Producing. Having read this fantastic book twice, I probably could have asked a dozen more questions, given the scope of the work. It's the kind of material one can read several times and absorb new things with each pass. It's available from Amazon as well as brick and mortar cheap cialis online retailers. I was so incredibly excited to learn about the new Daily Adventures of Mixerman - An Audio Book Dramatization. Even though I read the printed edition several years ago, the audio book version adds a whole new dimension to the story. Rather Buy cialis generic than just Mixerman reading the content, there's voice talent reading dialog and not just any old actors—you've got people like Ken scott, Ron Saint Germain, Ed Cherney, Dave Pensado, William Wittman and many others. Guess what? I'm among the many others! Well, truth be told, I got to do one line but, hey, listen to the credits and weep ;) The Daily Adventures of Mixerman - An Audio Book Dramatization is available through Audible and coming soon to the iTunes Store. Check out the first chapter on youtube: Chapter 0 - Supreme Negotiators And here's a bit of a trailer: TDAOMM Sampler

So anyway… where was I? It's only been about 23 months since the previous episode. Geez… What can I say? There's too much to explain. I'll catch you guys up with the goings on over time but, for now, here are some of the things I talk about in this episode: METAlliance A couple of years ago, I attended the "In Session" event at Avatar Studios. This was a weekend of sessions with the likes of Al schmitt, Phil Ramone, George Massenburg, Elliot Scheiner, Frank Filipetti, Ed Cherney and Chuck Ainlay. It was a fabulous workshop and one of the most enjoyable events I've ever attended. from what I understand, there's one coming up early next year. If you have an opportunity to attend—do it. Studio Renovation Well, I don't know what exactly to call it. It started out as a remodel, turned into a renovation but ultimately could be considered a rebuild. I'll eventually do an episode on the whole process but I'd like to do it in a video format. I'll probably need to enlist the help of somebody to shoot and edit. Orchestral Recording Last year was one of those years when I flew to Kiev to record an orchestra for Sulyma Productions. This time, my wife flew out toward the end of our week there and we stayed a few extra days. Again, I'll probably do a separate episode about that trip. Just catching up a bit for now. The Seven Little Foys I did another cast album for Chip Deffaa. This time, it was for a musical called "The Seven Little Foys." The big dilemma was that I was right in the middle of the demolition at the studio so I ended up tracking most of the recording at Dubway Studios. There are some photos from various sessions at Dubway and BeSharp (where I did the final overdubs) at Chip's web site. Although I normally don't answer questions on the podcast, I did take a few questions via Twitter right before recording the episode. I don't know if I'll make that a regular feature or not but I just did it on a whim. I've got two interviews in the can so I'll try to get them out http://www.izzit.org/cheap/viagra-online-cheap.html as soon as possible. What can I say? I'm trying to get back on the wagon… or is it off the wagon? Whatever it is, I'm trying to do it ;) Music featured in this episode includes: Various excerpts from Olga Vinokur (piano), recorded by slau Halatyn at Systems two, brooklyn NY "Pro Susidku" and "Shchedryk" by the Kiev City Symphony, recorded by slau Halatyn at dZZ, Kiev, Ukraine "World War I Medley" by the Seven Little Foys Original Cast, recorded by Slau Halatyn at dubway Studios, New York NY,  mixed by slau Halatyn at BeSharp, Astoria NY "In the crease" by Branford Marsalis, recorded and mixed by Rob Hunter at Bearsville Sound Studios, Bearsville NY "What Did You Do?" by Slau, recorded and mixed by Slau Halatyn at BeSharp, Astoria NY, mastered by Don Grossinger at Europadisk, Long Island City NY "Everything Alive Must Die Some Day" by George Hrab, recorded, mixed and 'mastered"  by Slau Halatyn at BeSharp, Astoria NY "I'm the One" by Slau, recorded and mixed by Slau Halatyn at BeSharp, Astoria NY, mastered by don Grossinger at europadisk, Long Island City NY "Felt Memories" by Slau Halatyn from the documentary, "Felt, Feelings and Dreams by Andrea Odezynska," recorded and mixed by slau Halatyn at BeSharp, Astoria NY
