This is the first full take of “Clearing the Clutter.” There is some noise from the little brass tray with beads on it. Also has an enthusiastic page turn (which I attenuated somewhat) near the beginning. This mix was primarily an initial effort to experiment with mixing the four channels of audio down to a two-channel (stereo) version. I added a tiny bit of reverb (barely noticeable). Could still do a lot with equalization, but my inclination is to keep the audio effects to a minimum and make it a pretty natural, straightforward presentation. I’m interested in folks’ opinions of the relative balance of Carrie’s voice, the other voices, and the piano.
