Kou Chou Ching – new album

Kou Chou Ching must have liked what I did with Black Heart and Tiu Tiu Ssu Hsiang Chi, because they’ve asked me to mix and master their new 12 track album. As was the case with Chang Jui-chuan’s recent Resurrection album, Kou have received a grant from the Taiwanese government for the project, but unfortunately the grant comes with some serious time constraints, meaning that I have about a month to work on my contribution to the album. Considering that my remixes for them took about a month each, it stands to reason that I won’t be able to do the same kind of make over on these 12 tracks. On the other hand, this is also not required – it is Kou’s album, so I consider my job to be to make what they’ve given me sound as good as possible. Possibly with some creative addition or substitution here and there.

I’ve just started serious work on the project (back from a long-weekend break in Kenting at the southernmost tip of Taiwan), but right now it’s rather boring technical work moving all the multi-track projects from Nuendo into Sonar, my preferred audio-midi sequencing package. Somehow, I couldn’t get OMF-export to work in Nuendo – the OMF format usually makes transporting multitrack mixes between packages a doddle – so, I’m stuck doing it by hand. It’s taking quite a bit of time, but I should be done with it today or tomorrow. Can’t wait to get creative on the tracks!
