Recording & Production: RP21 - Era-Shifting Recording with David KalmuskyModerator:
Mark Rubel, The Blackbird Academy - Nashville, TN, USA; Pogo Studio - Nashville, TN, USA
David Kalmusky, Addiction Sound Studios - Nashville, TN, USA
Acclaimed Nashville-based producer/engineer/artist David Kalmusky (Journey, Keith Urban, John Oates, Vince Gill, Shawn Mendes, etc.) was asked to record a version of “Amazing Grace” for the documentary film Met While Incarcerated. Kalmusky set himself a fascinating challenge: parallel recording of the same music using different eras of recording technology and musical approaches, which can be cross-faded and blended together. The song, band, and performances "time travel" between 1947 record cutting, 1962 open room recording, 1976 vari-speeded tape, 1984 synthesizers, and current technology (Pro Tools, Elastic Audio, etc.) In a far-ranging conversation with Mark Rubel, David Kalmusky will explain the various instruments, microphones, techniques and media used, and demonstrate and play the musical results of this unique process.
