like putting my mix to to someon else. i have to trust them...its something outside of my control. which is a good thing.
there is also the element of it being a bottleneck. i want to move to full self reliance
i suppose this is what good mastering is for. the trained master engineer would glue all the elements as much as possible. printed. pressed. sandwiched. consolidared. unified.
and actually, this is what film grain does for me. and what color grading does too. it feels like it turns the film into its own experience/world. unifies all the elements on a screen.
rememebr telling joe matera guitar world about this - treating it all as one field of sound.
