Previously during Phase I, Mr. Goettee had the opportunity to work with Ms. Gerber-Salins and observe examples of decisions she made as Producer to create variety and color throughout the creation process for the Phase I draft recording. Those experiences provided a foundation of information about the process of producing a recording.
Additional work shaping production decisions was accomplished during the extended hiatus between Phases I and II. Mr. Goettee repeatedly revisited the draft recordings making detailed analysis notes on each of the numbers for things he thought were problems needing attention, and ideas for how to address them. Those analysis notes served as the basis for discussions with Ms. Gerber-Salins. Together they identified various ideas for how the draft hymns and songs recordings could be improved.
Those two sets of experiences:
provided the needed information and concepts Mr. Goettee applied in Phase II to complete this Hymns and Songs for Living recording.
In additon, during phase II Mr. McElroy provided suggestions, guidance and facilitation in his role as Associate Producer.
The assistance from both Ms. Gerber-Salins in planning for and Mr. McElroy in carrying out Phase II are gratefully acknowledged!
