what is your approach to panning? i'm not hugely familiar
with the way a rock band is mixed, but i do hear in edge of
that in your mixes, with the way the drums are set aside...
but, also, more, and louder. you'll ditch the carefully
laid-out panning for a spinny effect at the right moment;
how's that play out in ur hed? have you ever tried to create
shapes with panning? like, is bird of prey's panning
symbolic of a bird? how do you do the panning for house
music?

thx,
smallie biggs

back in your atari ST days, did you sample the 303 in 8bar
loops... or mix it down live? i recall you said you'd turn
some knobs during the mix to "humanize" it, so i'd figure it
was live... but, was it done track-by-brack, or all in a
single run with darting about; knob turning? those
programmed akai filter buildups, did you write them with
deliberate room to wiggle around the 303?

was the 303 filter manipulation spontaneous, or a carefully
developed ballet? if both, in different situations, examples
would help

in as many or few words as you care to use, how did "next to
nothing" come about?

when you're slinging piano around with wah-wah most
brilliantly, they do sound programmed, but i'm not entirely
sure. are they? do you hear it in your head first, or just
tease it out?

Agreed, not to say that he makes bad music, he's made some
absolute belters.

Housemartins are still amazing too.

nice trick, comparing a dick with an arsehole, but no, a
dick is a huge long thing that comes on the outside

this is my story, yo. people in high school were talking
about "love line" with adam corolla (named after the car he
was conceived in) and "dr. drew," a professional medical
whore. people in my school listened to it, and in a sort of
stiff autistic way, i decided i should listen to it as well
so i could understand what people were going on about at
lunch. it lasted about two weeks, but that was precisely the
two weeks when rockefella skank was blowing up. i had just
gotten a new computer and a cable modem, and rockefella
skank was literally the first mp3 i pirated. we were making
a video for latin class and i ftp into my server and pull
off rockefella skank and add it into our class video and
people are all "how the fuck did you do that?" it would be
another two or four years before most people knew what the
fuck an mp3 was

i figured out how his panning works

i usually never use stereo except via fx to create a little
space. or, like, i hadn't considered hard panning certain
things -- i hadn't considered syncopated panning. some
things, you leave centerish, in the pizza slab rectangle of
people dancing. the other stuff you sprinkle a bit left or
right, some delay to smooth it over, maybe even animate the
panning a bit with envelopes. and then it creates this sense
of the noises spinning around that rectangle instead of
being in it. or something. i'm obviously going to keep
listening to better living through chemistry until my ears
bleed, so i'll keep thinking on it; may as well

here is what i was listening to on loop for quite a
while, because i noticed the syncopation of the panned this
or that, and hmm, what's he left in the center? and really
most of that time was like... trying to see it in my head.
and, i must admit, kind of making a shopping list for when i
got back to the studio
