Clement Jacques: La Première

Mixing this song was great fun. When I first opened up the session it was pretty straightforward. Drums, heavy guitars and a few differently processed vocal tracks. The way the different vocal tracks were laid out in the session when I first opened it inspired me to do the intro that I did. With that intro, the song now also needed a different ending in order to achieve a balanced arrangement. The original ending was a bit to abrupt for me. Mixing and blending the different processed vocal tracks at the beginning and ending of the song was a challenge but I think it all turned out great in the end.

Listen for the reversed reverb in the intro and outro. Hear the subtle pumping of the guitar on the left side and the compression of the drums, the guitars and the vocals:
