The "packing list" - Belle Journee
The "packing list" phase of our projects is brief but significant - means mixdown time. A studio booked non-refundable. Committed. The music version of a pilot's V1/V2 I suppose. Our Brobdingnagian of a piece, "Belle Journee", gets its own private mix session: 3 days at "The House" (Panhandle House). No other work of ours has ever or will ever again be this large. A metric ton of raw tracks down to just two where all will find a way to live "left", "right", "center", or somewhere in-between. Call it "stereo democracy". It won't be perfect but neither is any other democracy.
