Staples Center Ambient Mix

July 8, 2009

Here’s a live mix I did in real time of the heavily saturated media coverage of Michael Jackson’s memorial at The Staples Center. I started rolling with the press’ breathless reportage of the motorcade and all the fan reactions and the like. I also mixed in live sounds from a Southern California HAM radio repeater station and some looping sounds from a Buddha Machine 2.
It was recorded using the exact same methods as my live Obama Inauguration mix here.

I ended it just prior to the beginning of the memorial service. The mix isn’t meant to be disrespectful of Michael or his fans; just my way of processing the craziness of our media. It’s a little long and probably not too terribly interesting as music goes but is a time capsule, of sorts.
