Release day is here so I can announce my involvement in this major overhaul of the highly successful Warframe game world by Canadian game studio Digital Extremes. Working with the fine folks at Syndicate Creative, I’ve been editing voice assets for the better part of a year. Performers, directors, writers and producers joined us in studio and patched in from across Europe and North America. We became a central hub, virtually and IRL… Read the rest “New Release: Warframe: The Duviri Paradox”
Recently I recorded and edited some voice cues for a savings bank’s phone support centre. I’ve done this before but this was the first time I’d been asked to convert output for playback on the end-client’s IVR system.
Apparently there are a couple common standard formats in use depending on which IVR tech is deployed. Windows Media Audio (*.wma) is one and the other is PCM .wav but using a particular encoding scheme … Read the rest “Batch Audio Conversion for IVR (Interactive Voice Response) – WMA, WAV 8bit u-Law”
Last year I did the vocal production, recorded, mixed and mastered this album for Toronto rapper Adrian Duncan and producer That’s Deep and I’m glad to see it finally released. I hate the wait.
In collaboration with the fine people at Syndicate Creative, I did a bunch of voice editing for this upcoming expansion to the Warframe game world.
Since the dawn of the COVID-19 pandemic, the voice acting world has gone all-in on remote contribution. The role of the recording studio is in flux. Especially when it comes to non-union projects, performers are more likely than ever to be working from a home studio, patched in over … Read the rest “Warframe – Angels of the Zariman”
The Christie Pits Riot is a combined audio drama and historical walking tour set in 1930s Toronto, exploring an infamous race riot and the mark it left on the city’s Jewish families. It was written and created by Sam Rosenthal and Drew Carnwath, inspired by Sam’s own family’s history in Toronto. I recorded all of the voice performances, did the dialog/voice edit and passed it along to John Ebata in Halifax who added music and … Read the rest “The Christie Pits Riot – The Hogtown Experience”
Here is a brilliant home recording by Toronto pianist Artun Miskciyan which I helped him polish up for release.
I met Artun at Blue Sound in 2019. He had some chamber music recordings done at another studio but which needed some fixing up. I was immediately impressed not only by his virtuosity but also his keen ear for fine details in the recordings. He was exacting in his direction but enthusiastic about the process and … Read the rest “Chopin Mazurka in C-Sharp Minor Op. 63 No. 3 | Artun Miskciyan, piano”
I’m so glad to see this album released. Dan Kelsey (Hush About the City) wrote and home-recorded nearly everything from his place in Winnipeg and sent me the tunes to mix late last summer. I helped him realize his vision by reworking some drum and synth sounds, recording a few new instrument parts here and there, editing the many layered vocals and finally mixing and mastering the record for digital release. The only song I … Read the rest “New Album Release: Hush About the City – ‘On Making Friends’”
I mixed an LP for Winnipeg pop/electronica artist Hush About the City between lockdowns last Summer. Now finally I get to watch the singles trickle out. This was one of my favourite cuts. Have a listen and show them some love on your favourite streaming platform.
Last year I worked with Stratford, ON artist Katelyn Biehn on this chill pop/R&B tune. I produced the vocal sessions, recorded acoustic guitar and contributed rhythm and production elements before mixing and mastering the single at Blue Sound in Toronto.
