Mix History
I remember doing some analog stuff (an attempt to a "full" version of Time, merging to a cassette tape both excerpts from this song found in the TIME LP, comes to my mind), but I really started mixing when I had my first soundcard. It was a Sound Blaster Pro with 8-bit depth digital audio "in full stereo for your work or play", which was a real blast back in 1989/1990. That's about the time when I started listening lots of QUEEN, so I followed an obvious path to the use of that new and exciting tool for exploring their music (yes... I'm guilty of reversing Another One Bites The Dust) and -why not?- changing it. By the way, I used to have a tiny Yamaha PSS-480 keyboard which was General MIDI-compatible and I was fortunate enough to get hold of a friend's unused MIDI interface cable (...which I'm still using), so I was also into sequencing (God Save Voyetra) with that very same good old card.
The very first QUEEN-related mix I've done that I recall was a mish-mash of Under Pressure with samples from the A KIND OF MAGIC album and, again, Another One Bites The Dust (Another Kind Of Pressure would have been a suitable title). I remixed it with a friend of mine called Maxi, with whom we tryied out some weird things, also experimenting with acoustic equipment, until 1992/1993 (the last thing we've done together in the field was an early revision of Rick Rubin's ruined mixes). Since then, I've continued in music and audio as a hobby, sometimes re-working QUEEN material.
In early 1999 I've sent some mixes (China Belly, Surrounder, The InVisible Take, etc.) to the Fan Mixes section of Bart Lammey's FTP server, the precursor of this site. More recently, I've contributed QUEEN remixes for incidental music as introductions and outroductions to performances by the local QUEEN tribute band RIVENDEL, whom I've produced their debut album TRYING TO BELIEVE (you can also spot me featuring there!). I've collaborated with other cover bands and other musicians as well - from recording and/or (re)mixing (or playing and even singing!?) to just restoring and/or (re)mastering.
