Incredible is right.
You can really see why automated mixing boards had to eventually be invented!

yeah, he's conducting microphone levels there, it's kind of painfully imtimate to watch the control freak side running wild but it also confirms what the payoff of the control freak thing was

my downstairs neighbour told me this week that he used to live downstairs from him in toronto in the 60s/70s and could hear him practice all the time

for fans of that youtube of Gould conducting at the mixing board upthread, Sony put out an interesting two disc set last year -- first disc is all of his 'acoustic orchestrations' compiled on one disc, and the second disc is a CD-ROM containing all four mic rank recordings of a single Scriabin piece, allowing you to mix it yourself

it's total fun. there's a youtube up of someone doing an odd mix

something addictive about his approach to bach for me -- makes it hard to listen to anyone else (on piano at least. I dig Landowska on harpsichord)

Are some of his recordings known to have weird pitch issues? I've been listening to his English Suites and I feel like there's this very slight speed-up/slow-down thing going on a lot of the time. The thing is I actually kind of like it, but I want to know if I'm crazy that I'm hearing it.
