Production Information

  • Recorded Date:
  • Release Date:
  • Duration:
  • Log line:
  • Edited by: Tony and Erik
  • Notes: Editing was based on three files recorded locally within the same hotel room. Echo, noise, and sync drift necessitated muting Randal for every moment he was not speaking. Tony completed the first 80% and Erik finished and mixed-down/exported.
  • I asked Tony and Erik to go through by hand and improve the recording as much as possible. They spent considerable time but the quality is unfortunately not as good as we would like it, but we have a lot of work on our plate and can't allocate any more time to it. - Dane
