Recent work: Little Scream - Cult Following

I mastered this over several days last winter with Laurel and co-producer Richard Parry (Arcade Fire). Though most mastering sessions don't typically span over multiple days, there was quite a bit of stem mixing to do. This is a process in which the mixes get output to various audio stems (ie: drums, guitars, keys, vocals, bass) to allow for internal balances to be altered at the mastering stage. Basically it means added flexibility to make last minute changes (usually vocal levels) while keeping the original sonic imprint of the mixer's work. There are some great contributions here by Sufjan Stevens, Mary Margaret O'Hara, and members of the National. Check out the video of this serious pop gem:
