All is Quiet With Chayanne.....Or Is It?

"Silence is a text easy to misread."  ~A.A. Attanasio

On the surface it has seemed that Chayanne has settled down into a state of well deserved relaxation, peace and quiet, and well deserved time with his family. I have no doubt that he's enjoying all of these things, but it seems that beneath the tranquil surface, there are stirrings of a VERY welcomed kind.

Let me preface this next paragraph by saying that IF there is news out there about Chayanne...Fantasia Chayan will find it! She had earned the title "Super Sleuth 2011". The other day Fantasia saw a tweet from the world renowned mastering engineer Michael Fuller of  Fullersound, Inc.

Michael Fuller's tweet read, and I quote "new mastering for Live album on

On December 9, 2011 at 12:40 pm EST Fantasia Chayan of Pandora's Caja broke the news on FB! That made for an exciting Friday!

So what exactly is it to "master music"?  I can tell you that until Friday, I had no idea what this actually meant myself, so I did the only natural thing, I searched the internet.
"Mastering is widely misunderstood, often mangled, and sometimes mistaken for mixing. Still, you need it. Because once your songs are recorded and mixed, the tracks are shaped, sculpted, scooped, equalized, compressed, and finessed into sonic splendor (well, you hope) through the audio process known as mastering.
Matt Forger” Mastering is what gives depth, punch, clarity and volume to your tracks," notes Matt Forger, whose name is on 200 million albums as recording engineer, mixer, and producer. After working with Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, and countless indie artists, Forger has a unique perspective on all things audio. "Mastering is part science, part craft, and part alchemy," he says, "just like songwriting, singing, performing and recording." Mastering Your Music

I could be totally wrong, would seem logical to me that the only live music that Chayanne has done recently would of course be from his very recently concluded "No Hay Imposible" tour.......and yes what an amazing way that would be to to start the new year with a live recording of the tour (Chayanne, It would really be a great Valentine's Day gift to have "No Hay Imposibles Live" on DVD!.....I'm just sayin')

So with that said....just because it seems quiet doesn't mean there's nothing going just means we need to learn to listen just a little more carefully.
