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 listeners, can have nothing but contempt.
The band consists of the four most dislikable human beings you can imagine. The singer is vain and pretentious. The guitarist is a serious depressive. The drummer is as "dumb as cotton", and the bassist is merely mean and petty, making him the only one that Mixerman can stand. All four of them hate each other's guts, and they haven't even been on tour yet.
Mixerman takes you through the recording process of a bidding war band in over their heads with a famous record producer (also in over his head). Many find Mixerman's diary entries side-splittingly funny. Some find them maddening. And a select few feel they are the most despicable accountings of record-making ever documented.
In this audiobook version of the best-selling book, Mixerman reaches new heights in the production of the actual audiobook itself. This work is filled with a cast of characters, original music, sound effects, and an overall amazing sound quality. Even if you've read the print edition, hearing the book will bring you into a whole new behind-the-scenes experience of the insane world of making music - as only Mixerman can!
Please note: Both the print and audio editions of The Daily Adventures of Mixerman follow an unconventional, somewhat nonlinear structure. This is intentional.
