Engineer and co-producer Jim Anderson's goal was to translate these intentions into a convincing, believable and enveloping sonic soundscape in 5.1 surround. The recording was conceived with surround sound in mind. Jim will play selections from the album in surround and discuss the production process. On the Grammy winning recording "Modern Cool," by Patricia Barber, Jim Anderson revisited an audiophile classic and reinvented it's sound. RSVP Below.
