What is DUAL MONO? Isn't that just stereo? Yes, stereo does consist of two separate channels, a right and a left, but it often shares sounds between the two, placing them in the "middle" of the stereo spectrum. In dual mono, none of the sounds in the left channel are shared in the right, and vice versa. This results in two isolated channels with nothing in between. Each side can be listened to as its own version of the song, and this method can highlight various instruments often lost in a complete stereo mix.
In this album, the rhythm section appears in the left channel, which comprises the drums, bass, percussion, rhythm guitar, and rhythm keyboards. The melodies appear in the right channel, usually played by lead guitars, keyboards, flutes, trumpets, trombones, clarinets, strings, etc. The orchestrations on tracks 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, and 12 were created by Bryan Senti in New York.
Much of the haze was stripped away and the mix decompressed to offer a chance to listen to these instrumentals with the utmost clarity. This was how the mixes for "Ceres & Calypso in the Deep Time" were originally conceived, before we sent them back to the Mesozoic and the effects of time dilation, dimension inversion, instant fossilization, and magnetic thaw took their toll on the frequencies.
I hope you enjoy this new glimpse into the music.
