Surachai – Come, Deathless

Come, Deathless was released 3 months ago and I wanted to share something I haven’t in previous write-ups. I have written about how each album was recorded, produced, visualized, and manufactured on TRASH_AUDIO. Most of the technical process and practices remain the same for Come, Deathless and they were covered in some interviews linked below. There was no singular point in sharing, they were only one perspective on how to work within the confines of sound and physical formats, though I hope you found them helpful. 

One aspect I haven’t shared in the past is what my actual sessions look like. To explain briefly, I record everything into Pro Tools, edited, filled in gaps, printed effects, mixed and bounced. I worked with only audio files, all at 96kHz or higher, so the vinyl version stayed at a minimum of 96kHz until the end. If you listen closely on a competent system, which I hope you have, you’d be able to tell the difference. Some tracks are unnecessarily complex and some are deceivingly simple.

I want to thank you for the support and enthusiasm I’ve received directly or indirectly – it means a lot. If I’m being honest, I have a hard time accepting praise, talking about myself, and will happily divert a conversation away from me because of my nature to be invisible. I confronted myself with an image of my face on Come, Deathless and still am uncomfortable with the idea – but how much do we grow in comfort?
