I have always been fascinated by reverb. For Spaces, I applied the same techniques and equipment used to record major film scores. Vintage microphones and warm analogue equipment go hand in hand with a grand orchestral sound. But creating a truly useful 3-D reverb for a composer or mixer is a complex problem that has many possible solutions and methods. I pioneered a method that involves complex sound arrays that emulate the sound radiation characteristics of various instruments and orchestral sections. It’s an idea that started with sampling many years ago. It’s really all about placing your instruments in a space relative to other instruments and doing it in a natural way to avoid any unnatural results. Creating reverb is a fun process and it’s quite an experience to occupy grand spaces when there is no one else in the building.
