Sound Effects Editors Needed

I’m looking for help with Sound Effects editing – the work is being completed in Adobe Audition, which would be the easiest way to collaborate.  Open to ProTools artists, however, it will be more difficult to collaborate. The project is in a rough edit stage, with all the pieces in place, but it needs a lot of detailed work to add in… (more…)

Navigating the Stereo Spectrum

I made an important discovery recently, one that will turn upside down my initial conception about how to control who speaks from where along the stereo spectrum. Meaning, how far to the left or to the right a character speaks from in the stereo mix. But first an update. If you have checked back to this website over the past… (more…)

Easter and Conversion

I hope you has a wonderful Easter. This weekend I celebrated with a long time friend of mine who was officially received into the Catholic Church. Like myself he was raised Baptist and generally moves in Protestant circles, though recently we have formed relationships with some like-minded Catholics. The schisms between Christian churches has long fascinated me, especially as I… (more…)

Additions to the Family

I’m not much for making blog excuses, so I often opt for silence rather than reveal that there isn’t a lot of news to report. Where have I been since October? Well, on November 7th my 2nd baby boy was born– which triggered a long-standing agreement between my wife and I that I would set aside the project for the… (more…)

Finished Principle Recording

Not too long ago we had our final “official” recording session, with most all of our anarchist council present for the occasion. We finished the duel with the Marquis, followed by the madcap chase through the French countryside and the confrontation on th pier. We had a lot of fun and moved very quickly. I’ve been extremely pleased with the… (more…)

Fearing the Marquis de St. Eustache

By now if you’ve been following the project, you may have noticed that the part of the French Marquis is played by a woman– the inimitable Lisa Wolpe.  Among many things, Lisa is the artistic director of the Los Angeles Women’s Shakespeare Company, and has made her mark locally by playing some of Shakespeare’s most powerful men as if she were… (more…)

The Man Who Was Sunday

Over the last two recording sessions I’ve had the opportunity to record separately with two extremely fine actors involved in the show, however, both presented a unique recording challenge. Peter Macon is a powerful actor who has been garnering attention recently up in the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.  Last year he played Macbeth in a powerful rendition, and the year before… (more…)

Ascending the House of Reason

Last week we recorded scenes with Dr. Bull, played by Stephen Alan Carver.  Now it is Gabriel and Professor de Worms who must confront him.  Something Martin Gardner pointed out in his introduction to his edition of the book, The Annotated Thursday, was that each of the anarchists on the Council of Days, the seven supposed worst men in the… (more…)

The Great Unconscious Gravity of a Girl

There I saw Rosamond, Gregory’s sister with the goldred hair, cutting lilac before breakfast, laughing with the great unconscious gravity of a girl. Rosamond is mentioned twice in The Man Who Was Thursday book.  Once, right after Gabriel’s first debate with Lucien Gregory “the real anarchist” as he’s known.  She catches his eye, and later asks him his advice on… (more…)

Narration Complete

Yesterday we had our sixth recording session, the forth session of only narration, performed by Jacob Sidney as Gabriel.  All together it took about ten hours to get through itl.  The average takes for each line was three, with many coming at two, and a few coming in at eight. One of the most enjoyable parts of the book is… (more…)
