I’m looking for a new Engineering Assitant


I’m looking for a new, part-time Engineering Assistant (my previous Assistant, the extraordinarily talented Kathy Tu, just left for a fantastic opportunity at WNYC, that I’m annoyed to have to keep under wraps for the time being).
It’s a part time job, about 15-25 hours a month. The ideal candidate lives in the Los Angeles area. But, since it’s a work-from-home job with largely flexible hours, I might be able to be convinced to hire from elsewhere.

Here’s the job:
Candidates need to be expert in ProTools with extensive experience both editing and producing for voice and working with music. Additionally, she or he will need to be generally tech savvy—comfortable working with and/or learning various file-sharing platforms, illustration, audio, and word-processing programs.
Bonus points for expertise in Abelton Live and WordPress.

Responsibilities include:
1. Mastering episodes of The Memory Palace. Working on a regular release schedule, you will be given a ProTools session includes a near-complete draft. The Assistant’s job will be to clean up rough edits, smooth out breaths, p-pops, noise-reduction, set final levels, monitor volume and luffs and other mastering.
2. Mastering ads and promotional content. Same idea, but will need some flexibility in her or his schedule as this content often does not adhere to a regular production calendar.
3. Uploading content on multiple platforms for distribution.
4. Provide occasional technical support.
5. Maintain and update a music database.
5. Provide support WordPress support for

Approximately 20/month.
Pay is negotiable and generally invoiced and issued monthly.

I’m the Artist in Residence at The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Hi there. So, turns out I am the Artist in Residence at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, New York for 2016/2017.

I’m extremely excited about that.

Here’re some A’s to some FAQ’s…

Q: What’ll you be doing, exactly?
A: I’ll be producing ten audio pieces over the course of the next several months that are inspired by the collection and the museum itself.

Q: Rad! Are you still going to be doing regular Memory Palace episodes?
A: Thanks for your enthusiasm! Yes, with rare exceptions, these Met Residency Episodes (as they’ll be designated on the site and in your podcast feed) will not derail the normal, every-other-week release schedule of the regular Memory Palace episodes. Think of them as bonus episodes.

Q: Sounds dope, Nate. Super dope. But, say I live in Oklahoma/Osaka/Oswego/Oberhausen/Oxaca de Juarez and won’t be able to get to the Met, will these pieces still make sense?
A: Maybe? There’ll definitely be some that really don’t hold up unless you’re there. That’s just the way it’s going to have to be. But, not all. In the notes for each episode, I’ll include links to any of the art called out by name in the episode. Further, I suspect that some Met episodes might get a slightly tweaked, non-site-specific Memory Palace episode.

Q: How often will they come out?
A: Periodically. Roughly monthly for the next several months, likely two at a time. But we’re going to be flexible.

Q: Beyond the episodes themselves, will you be doing anything else at The Met as part of your residency?
A: Yes. Details to come.

Q: Are you actually in residence?
A: Like, I sleep in a sarcophagus? Or like some From the Mixed up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler situation?

Q: No. Jeeze. Do you live in New York now?
A: Nope. Still in L.A.. Just visiting there a lot.

Q: Are these episodes canon?
A: Like, in the Star Wars/Dr. Who/whatever way? Wow, that’s… wow.

Q: Why are you ragging on me? You’re writing these questions.
A: Excellent point! If you’re a Memory Palace stan, consider the numbered episodes proper Memory Palace episodes.

Q: Looking good, Nate. (Sorry, that was more of a comment).
A: No problem, buddy. Right back at you.
