You couldn't just do the basic if you tried, could you? (good!)
There’s something serene about flying AND I look to not doing it for awhile!
New, new, new. Am surrounded by new, how about you?
I’ve been going through the normal roller coaster of moving emotions and in the process realized that I am in the best space to share my 20+ years of living abroad experience with ya. So I’ve been working like mad to turn around a new micro course in 1 day. It was hard but I did it!

☕ quality control: do you ever check your work by sound comparing to other podcasts?
☕ sound design: This interview with the John Wick: Chapter 4 sound design team is insightful. I especially love how in the below moment, they talked about the visual inspiring the sound. Sometimes in podcasting I think we’re stubbornly audio only. And we don’t need to be.
“Visually, all the sets were more lush, and exotic and, and I think that inspired us to be a little more detailed with backgrounds and the type of spaces that all the effects and vocals lived in. And it just informed the mix, it was just visually more sumptuous than the previous Wicks.”

We move into our short term permanent housing on Monday (long story, super paperwork boring). Yesterday I popped by the neighborhood to see what it’s like. We’ve got 2 grocery stores on the ground floor and it’s a 5 minute walk (or less) to the cutest area I’ve seen in Copenhagen so far. It’s a mix of modern coffee shops, restaurants, etc and cobblestone streets. We’re in that apartment until we secure permanent housing. Apparently in Copenhagen, that could take months. Honestly, I hope it’s not too quick cause this hood is so cute!
Have a lovely week you lovely sound fiends!
