    So as you record you mix along at the same time. Do you have some kind of a structure or working methods for the mixing afterwards?George Massenburg : I’ve got maybe three different ways for starting from scratch, of what to bring up, and how to bring things up.One is listening to a reference or a demo of the song. Prince Charles Alexander at Berklee showed me this—he used to be Puff Daddy’s engineer/producer: Bring up all faders until the loudest thing on the demo is the same thing as the loudest thing on the mix. So you bring it up to -30, -25, -20, and then you refine the whole mix against the demo.Another way is to bring up the lead vocal and the most important supporting instrument like piano or acoustic guitar, electric guitar or whatever. You start with that and then you fill in the cracks underneath it. Another way, and the way I do jazz, is full rhythm section, a little bit of a balance, full saxes, a little bit of a balance, trumpets, a little bit of a balance, and then balance the three on the sub-masters, because jazz is a different thing. You need internal balances in the sections.

    What films would you recommend for people interested in learning more about sound design?Martin Hernández : I think that our favorite films are always those that achieve this coming-together, so the best way to appreciate this is through your favorite films, whatever they may be. And once you work on this you’ll understand ah! there was a piece of sound work; there was a piece of musical composition. That’s how you come to know interesting works, and the door opens because it’s your favorite film. Many of the films that I have loved don’t actually have great sound work. I love the general ambience in a film by Japanese director Nagisa Oshima, which is called Furyo or Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence (1983) and which is the story of a Japanese concentration camp during the Second World War, where they were holding British prisoners. There’s a really interesting relationship between David Bowie, who is one of the main actors, and Ryuichi Sakamoto, who apart from starring in the film was also its music composer. It’s a fantastic film and the music is incredible. Thanks to this film ‘el Negro’ and I became very good friends, because we were at school together, we worked together, and then we realized we had many tastes in common – we liked much of the same music and many of the same films. I’d been to see Furyo and he had too, he had the soundtrack and I didn’t, so he recorded it for me onto a cassette tape. We really admired Sakamoto’s music and the fact that he also acted in the film drove us crazy. Who knew that so many years later Sakamoto himself would give Alejandro a piece of music for Babel?So, Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence is one of my favorite films. The sound work isn’t particularly special, but maybe that’s what makes it so efficient.To progress successfully into employment in today’s music industry takes a lot of hard work, focus, commitment and passion.Choosing to work in the music industry is not for everyone.
