The music segment of the Ten x Ten 2015 Collection has entered the next phase of production with mixing, mastering and record pressing. Over the past few weeks, the musicians, along with curator Paul Giallorenzo and sound recordist Dave Zuchowski, put the final touches on their compositions which were recorded live at Elastic Arts this past March.
After the mixes were completed, they were mastered by local engineer Nick Broste before being sent to our sponsor, Chicago Mastering Service. Mastering increases the clarity and audibility of recordings by removing noise and altering the compression and equalization levels. Chicago Mastering Service has a highly-detailed article about the history and different options of mastering available to read on their website.
Finally, Chicago Mastering Service staff Shelly Steffens cut the music to a lacquer record, which was then sent to Gotta Groove Records in Ohio for vinyl pressing. A limited edition of 200 records will be pressed and paired with a catalog of prints in the complete Ten x Ten 2015 Collection.
