The Creative Process
When I take a music project for mixing, The first thing that is important to my work approach, is to gain a strong understanding of what the vision of the artist/s are, this is so that I can get a clear image in my mind of where the music project is heading creatively.
When working on the mixes I use a number of mixing tools at my disposal from eq'ing and compressing to balance the loud and quiet areas within each recording, often using gain staging parameters to prepare the track stems before moving on to other effects processes.
Buses, VCA faders and panning are also necessary for helping to create space for professional sounding mixes, so I will carefully select these specialised support tools to further improve the feeling of the music when needed.
I always take the time to listen to songs, envisioning how others who will be following the music will feel about the music when they listen to the song. As I feel it is so important to think about the artists fans and music enthusiasts listening to songs. Lastly working with the team who have been involved in the creative process drives the passion to challenge how far we can push the music to create a better listening experience for those buying or streaming artist music.
