    Mixerman is a recording engineer working with a famous producer on the debut album of an unknown band with a giant recording budget. Mixerman is supposed to be writing about recording techniques, but somehow, through that prism, he has hit upon a gripping story. Like all great narratives, Mixerman's diary has many anti-heroes for whom we, the readers, can have nothing but contempt. The band consists of the four most dislikable human beings you can imagine.

    Mixerman says: "A message from Mixerman"
    "Hilarious homage to The Chaos Theory at play"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Most definitely! I'm an aspiring audio engineer and many of my audio nerd friends would love this. It's written in a way that makes you feel like you're actually there in the studio witnessing the chaos unfold. Plus, you don't have to actually take the time out to read. You can just listen while you're busy doing other things! I mean, how awesome is that?


    What did you like best about this story?

    The hilarious viewpoint of the on goings in a big budget recording studio from the perspective of the only seemingly sane, normal person there. Mixerman's cynical day to day observations of the stupidity, incompetence, and egocentric madness surrounding him are nothing short of brilliant.


    What does Mixerman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The post production audio was stellar! Little ambiences in the background depicting the location, music when recording in the studio, and the short motifs for the introduction of new characters were great too... Although, this background stuff is a little loud at first, but you get use to it after awhile.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Is it just me, or is everyone else here completely insane?"


    Any additional comments?

    Would love to see the rest of the Mixerman series here on Audible! "Zen and the Art of Mixing" in particular.
