Only Death Is Real #5

Only Death Is Real

Welcome to the first Only Death Is Real of 2020, which this time features music from all corners of the earth. The column is a little shorter than usual this time as a few releases are yet to be fully available on bandcamp at the time of writing and including links to purchase the music is an important part of Only Death Is Real. However, it will be a little more frequent this year and I’m sure that finding music to feature in the future will be easy – the hardest part is not being able to talk about everything. powder! go away - Lost Happiness (Independent) Powder! go away may be the most strangely monikered band to feature on this ...

Ashley Lynch on film editing

Posted July 11, 2016, 2:50 p.m.
Beyond Casual Observation

For this edition of Beyond Casual Observation, Ashley Lynch, owner of Burnaby, BC-based Gingerbreadgirl Post—a versatile post-production studio that specializes in genre film-editing, colour grading and theatrical trailer campaigns—stepped away from a busy schedule to answer a few questions for us. As I've focused on film music, sound effects, foley, and everything else audible in film (this is a music site after all), I've come across points in discussions where exploring the assembly of film helps expand this aural analysis. Ms Lynch's depth of experience in post-production provided both practical and artistic layers to this ...
