2) creation, 4) housekeeping

  • (last few days) notebook entries on horrors of parental cleanliness, finished girl scout interview with basic editing, eq, and balance.  one of the first times I have taken audio to such a finished form - cd for the .wav files, a cd with mp3 versions of each interview, and on a memory stick.  each piece named so any player will display all relevant information instead of the ubiquitous "track 1," "track 2" etc.  also sorting through endless audio files and project folders to streamline all the music and sound artifacts I've built as an audio library.  sets up studio for a much more fluid creative process.

2) creation, 3) housekeeping

  • (last few days) more transfers of audio files to studio for girl scout project where they interviewed residents at assisted living facility.  some frustration that the project is only transfer, some light eq, balancing, and dithering down to mp3 for master cd copy for one of the mother's to generate copies for the girls and residents.  the sections would be much improved with fades, careful signal processing, small guitar sections within the narratives, and heavy editing of repetitions, stammering, "ums," speech missteps, etc.  Also 2 hour run of sorting images used for each chapter of ...fence posts rotting in the acreage... and the rear so searches for unused images is not so cluttered with pieces already used.  several notebook entries.
