Recording the Shins

Just finished recording the Shins at KFOG, here in San Francisco. They’re in town playing three nights at the Warfield this week, all of which are sold out.

They came in and soundchecked with a version of Pink Floyd’s “Fearless” and and then played a short set to a small crowd of fans at the station. Great performance, solid harmonies and even at the end of their tour, they seemed to be having a great time playing music. It’s always nice to see the good guys win.

Their new album “Wincing the Night Away” (which is amazing) was produced by my friend Joe Chiccarelli, who also mixed half of Beth Waters’ album “This Little Piggy”

New York Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Greek and Roman Wing Audio Tour

2007-04-11GreekRomanMet

I just completed recording and mixing a large part of the audio tour for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s new Greek and Roman wing which will be opening this month. It was a massive project with 5 or 6 other engineers and numerous translators, producers and voice talents, and it was pretty cool to be involved in. It’s not often that one of the greatest museums in the world opens a whole new wing.

Stephen Prutzman’s “Particle 423” will be performed by Kronos Quartet this April 15 in at Hertz Hall on the UC Campus in Berkeley, CA. I engineered the sound design for the composition with Steve over the past several months. It debuted in December in St Paul, MN and this will be its first performance in California.
