I worked with a young filmmaker mixing music for their film. They liked the music but didn’t like the mix. Wanted more treble and more treble. Made other frequencies less impactful, made the whole song weirder to the point of ridiculous. I tried to persuade them to trust my experience about how to mix a song but that just cemented for them I was not the right person to work with. Whenever I find myself in a stand off of power where the person holding it is not open to other views, I almost never remember how much more amusing it will be to support their view, the one I disagree with rather than fight a fight I am not permitted to win.
