LS06 - Music Mixing for Broadcast
Lawrence Manchester, Grammy-award winning music engineer and producer, takes a look at the special demands and challenges of mixing live music for broadcast. Lawrence will explain his process for mixing NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” in 5.1 surround and the crossover between his work in TV, film, and the recording studio.
Whether recording a symphony orchestra for Martin Scorsese’s OSCAR-winning masterpiece, The Departed, tracking vocals with Beyoncé, engineering the Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark album for Bono and The Edge, “Slow Jamming The News” with President Obama, mixing The Roots in 5.1 surround sound to a live TV audience of millions, or collaborating on viral videos surpassing ten billion views, Grammy-winner Lawrence Manchester’s experience and versatility as a producer, mixer, and engineer keep him very busy.
Lawrence served as the Supervising Music Producer for the film adaptation of Jason Robert Brown’s musical The Last Five Years starring Anna Kendrick. He also recorded and mixed the cast recordings for The Hunchback of Notre Dame, A Bronx Tale, Summer: The Donna Summer Musical, and co-produced the Grammy-nominated Original Cast Album for the Broadway smash Something Rotten!. Lawrence served as the Post Audio Mixer for Adele Live in New York City and recently Lawrence recorded the film scores for The Girl On The Train and Keeping Up With The Joneses and mixed the scores for I, Tonya, Godless, and Bel Canto.
