That Anime Show EP 40 with Neal Malley

zanegeist | May 13, 2012 | COMMENTS:7 Comments »

Neal Malley has been working at FUNimation for nearly 11 years as a Re-recording Mix Engineer and occasional Sound Designer. His background includes sound design for live theater, and before that he played trombone for eight years. He’s been infatuated with vibrating air molecules and the stories they tell all the way back to playing with a tape recorder at age 7. Having acted a few isolated times he definitely prefers being behind the scenes where the gear is.

Neal has mixed the English dub of many shows while at FUNimation, including Casshern Sins, .Hack Quantum, Black Cat, Ouran High School Host Club, Chrome-Shelled Regios, Strike Witches, Princess Jellyfish, Shin Chan, Rosario+Vampire, Okamisan, Chaos Head, One Piece, Dragonball, DBZ, DBGT, Birdy the Mighty, among others. But it’s working with the people at FUNimation that makes it all so much fun. Neal is in a band called White Girl with Sonny Strait and Gayla Jackson. White Girl will be performing at Ikasucan in Fort Wayne, Indiana this July.

    Awesome as always! awesome reference to Who’s on first? by Abbott and Costello and just an overall great show again looking forward to the next episode! 🙂

    I loved the show, it was very entertaining! You guys are so funny and I love all the interesting things you guys talk about, even if they are just silly. 🙂

    Ah! ah! such a good episode this was especially with the talk about classical music and Schoenberg (who doesn’t love dodecaphony?). I assume Tatum is also familiar with Boulez, Stockhausen and Webern? If not, definitely give them and the whole electroacoustic/Musique concrète genre a whirl.

    Gah. Geeking out a bit much. Loved this episode.

    Also, god damn is Tatum a cultured guy. Probably should have grasped this when he said he read Beowulf in Old English along with other fabulous feats of glory. Heh.

    I first saw Abbott and Costello in my film studies class, and from that point on I literally watch their stuff once a day at least XD

    Beowolf, really? That’s amazing! In old english none the less! I’m still struggling through Don Quixote. I’m about half way through and loving every minute of it. Next, I’ll be moving on to The Comedy of Errors and then I plan to re-read Hamlet. I still have to work my way to Beowolf though it will take me a while and a mountain of books or so. I don’t plan to be reading some of the original texts though… 16 is still a bit too young for that I guess.
