West Hollywood, CA (July 5, 2005)–Delilah Films and producer Michael Frondelli chose Threshold Sound to post the 5.1 and stereo audio for a recent Marianne Faithfull concert. The show, shot in HD at the Toybox Theatre in Los Angeles, will be broadcast on Mark Cuban’s HD-Net as a pay-per-view special and will be followed up with a DVD and CD soundtrack later in the year.
“All aspects were handled in house, allowing the project to come in on time and on budget,” stated Threshold sound director of engineering Peter Barker who assisted Frondelli in the mixing. “The workflow carried from our Neve 8078 mix room, to Stephen Marsh in the mastering room where the 5.1 and stereo mixes were polished. The next step took us into resident mixer Michael Perricone’s room where the audio was conformed and laid-back to picture, then we went back to Stephen for the final soundtrack mastering.”
Marsh echoed Barker’s statement, adding “I couldn’t imagine all these processes taking place in different locations given the level of communication required to maintain quality with such jobs; the all-in-one concept works very well.”
Threshold looks forward to bringing the all-in-one production facility model into the “new” music business. Marsh concluded, “As many aspects of the old production model which protected clients against quality issues like more time and pro studio budgets deteriorate, any facility that can help its clients with not only outstanding service, but quality control, will thrive. Marianne’s project has given us a great opportunity to demonstrate just how effective not driving all over town can be.”
