Recent gigs for Le Mobile during the summer have included:

Le Mobile owner/engineer Guy Charbonneau recorded No Doubt’s Rock Steady tour in Long Beach, Calif., and then mixed the project for stereo video and 5.1 DVD (both slated for November release) while the truck was parked in its Vista, Calif., headquarters. He did the same for The Pretenders forthcoming Loose in L.A. DVD, recording Chrissie Hynde and company at L.A.’s Wiltern Theater. For country superstar Kenny Chesney, Le Mobile traveled to Knoxville, Tenn., for tracking of his Back Where I Come From Party. When the truck returned to California, Charbonneau did the stereo mix for the CMT broadcast, as well as some premixing for a future 5.1 DVD release.

Summer tracking-only projects for Le Mobile covered a broad range of festival, TV and multimedia assignments. Chief engineer Charlie Bouis was in Le Mobile’s vintage Neve for all seven live taping sessions of The WB’s Pepsi Smash TV series at Hollywood’s Ren-Mar sound stage. Le Mobile also recorded two MTV projects, the MTV Bash and the MTV Movie Awards, along with the annual Coachella Festival and the Warped Tour for Warner Bros. Prior to Fleetwood Mac’s summer tour, Le Mobile recorded some live sessions for AOL, and Good Morning America later booked the truck to record a guest performance by Lisa Marie Presley. Other bookings included a ballet score for New York’s WNET-13 and orchestral music for a Disney cruise ship project.

“This summer really marked a turning point for the Le Mobile as a mixing studio, particularly for surround projects,” said Charbonneau. “We had a great response from all our clients. I just got an e-mail from Gail Colson, Chrissie Hynde’s manager, and she said that the mixes sounded great and everybody in the band thought the sound was fantastic. So, who says you can’t do surround mixes in a truck?!”
