Mixing the album: Day 4/5

Mendocino + RedwoodNext up on the hit list for mixing: Mendocino Redwood. This tune demonstrates rather well one of the principles on which PANTECHNICON operates: that the prettier the melody, the more fun it is to undermine it – here, a simple gospel-tinged melody bookends an extended violin solo by Graham Clark that progresses from eerie melodicism to an all-out wall of noise.
