Hey everyone, I've done up my Perceived Space graph and you're all welcome to give it a look and listen.
(I sent this one out over email as well just because it doesn't look like that many people are here on the G+ group yet.)
It's on Jon Foreman's "House of God, Forever", a laid-back folkish acoustic song that on closer listening turns out to have a LOT going on. I found this effect really interesting - your first listen feels like you're hearing an intimate, guitar singer-songwriter duet, but if you start actually visualizing every timbre you realize it's a pretty crowded room! (Piano, bg vox harmonizing, two harmonicas, a string section somewhere...)
I'd love a second opinion on what's going on with the guitar. It sounds to me like there's a different timbre on left vs right; my wild guess is that one side is getting a mic'd input, the other getting a direct line from a pickup, but maybe it's just different mixing with more highs on one side or something?
Also it was cool learning about ways to mix something to sound further back in space, and then hearing how those techniques were used on the female vocals (close when she's leading the 2nd verse, then she moves farther back to harmonize in final chorus).
Ok that's my thoughts, here's a link:https://docs.google.com/drawings/d/1fYKCbi-Zh-ONmaLkTdDUAXnP-M3HnUWdqSV7KK103iU/edit?usp=sharing
