In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org – Paul Haslinger, an artist and film composer, talks about mixing. He explains that the mix in film music is a multistage and interactive process. He mixes while he writes. Haslinger discusses why he does a music mix. He wants a second perspective and uses the music mix to predict the outcome of the final film mix. The dub mix is covered as well. The dub mix brings all audio components together to be mixed for the final film mix. Also in this segment, Haslinger explains that the process is sometimes collaborative and sometimes competitive. Ideally, people would work together as if it were one creative project. However, Haslinger points out that competitiveness is part of human nature and that egos do come into play.
