David Goettee:
Producer - Phase II

David Goettee

David's retirement in 2019 enabled TortoiseClimbing™ to devote considerable efforts to finishing:

Because Phase I Producer, Ms. Gerber-Salins, had become a full-time professor in audio and media, she no longer had time to be producer for this project. Fortunately, she had helped David accumulate a lot of knowledge about the role of Producer. Thus, with Bill McElroy as Associate Producer, David took on the role of Producer.

Training of David to Be Producer

During Phase I, Mr. Goettee worked with Ms. Gerber-Salins and learned by observing decisions made in Phase I production, and why, to create variety and color. Those experiences provided foundations of information about processes of production.

Then, during the extended hiatus between Phases I and II she provided additional training, repeatedly provided critique inputs to David's analysis notes of the Phase I draft recordings. Those analyses included where he thought numbers could benefit from changes, and proposed ideas for those changes. Those discussions produced increasing understanding and refined notes for improving the draft of Hymns and Songs of My Mother.

Those sets of experiences:

provided needed information and concepts that guided work under Phase II completing recording of Hymns and Songs of My Mother.

Other Assistance in Phase II

Additionally during phase II, TortoiseClimbingAudio had access to suggestions, guidance and facilitation from Mr. McElroy as Associate Producer.

The assistance from both Ms. Gerber-Salins in developing the plan, and Mr. McElroy's assistance in further refining and expanding the plan as part of carrying out Phase II were significant, and are gratefully acknowledged!
