Boston AES Meeting
On Tues. April, April 10, 2012, the Boston Section of the Audio Engineering Society held an event entitled "Online Collaborative Workflow; Making Music Remotely" featuring Producer Anthony J. Resta and his long-time engineer of the past 16 years, Karyadi Sutedja. They shared their unique production style with a focus on the challenges and flexibilities of producing music with other individuals remotely.
The talk began by referring to an article in the Recording Magazine that described what he referred to as a "Composers Collective" called "The Electrons", to create music that is placed in TV/Film. "The Electrons" are made up of Warren Cuccurullo (Guitar), Steve Ferrone (Drums) and Roger O'Donnell (Keyboards) from the Cure and songwriter Eric Alexandrakis.
Sharing examples of various projects they have worked on, the featured guest speakers described some of the steps that allowed them to work with other musicians and clients using this online collaborative process.
