Article: ‘Perfume’ Director Tom Tykwer Talks Sound

January 12, 2007

by Peter Cowie for POST (Jan. 1, 2007)

Tom Tykwer made his first feature, Deadly Maria, in 1993, but his breakthrough on the international scene came with Run Lola Run in 1998, which stunned audiences with its roller-coaster pace and its perceptive characterizations. The Princess and the Warrior followed two years later, and Heaven (starring Cate Blanchett) was based on a screenplay by the late Krzysztof Kieslowski.

Tools for That Finishing Touch

by Michael Cooper for MIX (Dec. 2006)

“Equalization is one of the two most-common processes employed in mastering (the other being dynamics processing) to put the finishing touch on a recording project. Whether used to correct a problem, enhance something that already sounds good or simply lend consistency to the spectral balance of multiple songs, equalizers must fulfill more demanding requirements if they are to be used for mastering, and not just for tracking and mixing.”

Issues in Modern Mastering

by Blair Jackson for MIX (Dec. 1, 2006)

“Despite the much-publicized malaise afflicting the record industry in general, these are pretty good times for most mastering engineers. After all, even though major-label rosters have been trimmed, many recording studios are struggling and album sales are down, the sheer number of audio and DVD projects flooding the marketplace — an increasing number of them as independent releases — is still enormous, and competent mastering continues to be viewed as an essential and affordable step in the recording process.”
