Fortune Has Turned (Remixed)” traces the journey from deep suffering to the fullness and freedom of the heart. It is a quest to find the Self. I asked Jeremy Allom to take the original, raw recordings for this album and bring out their vitality with his own powerful, creative stamp.
“When I was thinking about who I’d like to remix my album, I thought about my favorite album, Massive Attack’s “Blue Lines”. I wondered if I would be able to even get Jeremy Allom, who mixed that album. I did, and it has been an incredible experience working with him and getting to know him. When I looked for a mastering engineer, I wanted to get someone who would understand the sonic imperfections of the recordings and how I felt they mirrored the rough experience of seeking the Self. I chose iconic mastering engineer Emily Lazar because of her early background in creative writing, and her drive to tell the story of an album through her mastering work,” says Lastovicka.
