Michael Brauer was recently tapped to remix Time Out Of Mind, for the Fragments Bootleg Series 17 box set. Reimagining an Album Of The Year is no small task, and Michael tells us his goals for the project, what he was asked to do, and how he went about rebuilding this classic album and give it a new sound and yet be extremely true to the 'feel' of the original.
Michael has mixed four previous installments of Bob Dylan's Bootleg Series, and did the 2003 remixes for Bringing It All Back home and Blonde On Blonde. He also did the1999 Street Legal remix. He's a Bob Dylan fan and we discuss how he feels about radical changes to classic albums. In addition to the main album mix, we also talk about the first ever Dolby Atmos Mix for a Bob Dylan album.
Michael Brauer has won 7 Grammy's in a career that includes work for Coldplay, The Rolling Stones, Prefab Sprout, Deacon Blue, James Brown, Aerosmith, Jeff Buckley, David Byrne, Tony Bennett, Billy Joel, Rod Stewart, Paul McCartney, Ben Folds, Pet Shop Boys, Willie Nelson, KT Tunstall, Martha Wainwright) Prefab Sprout, Leonard Cohen, Pet Shop Boys, and man others. Brauer’s career began as an engineering intern at MediaSound Studios in New York City in 1976, working his way through the ranks to become a staff engineer in 1978. His first commercial break came when he mixed and engineered Luther Vandross’ debut double-platinum selling album Never Too Much (Epic) in 1981, as well as its follow up platinum album Forever, for Always, for Love (Epic) in 1982.
