Ever wonder what a music producer does? Watch in real time!

Ever wonder what a music producer does?

Last night I let the screen capture roll as I started building the mix for "Kaepora Gaebora" for our "Celtic Link" CD.

You can watch it all evolve in real time in this movie.

The performance features the magnificent violin of Odhrán O Casaide, and the stellar accompaniment on bodhran of Aimée Farrell Courtney.

It also features one of my favorite music production tools, the Vienna MIR Pro reverb.

Imagine you are the producer of a project.  What do you do when you can't decide what to do with a magnificent and perfect performance that doesn't fit into the overall construction of what you have planned for an album, but at the same time is so magnificent that it's not fair to keep the performance to yourself?

It's kind of like having a stolen Rembrandt.  You might enjoy it alone, but you can't show it to anyone nor share in the joy of the experience of viewing it.  That's how I feel about this track.

So here we are, sharing it with the world!  Enjoy!
