AES 137 | Meet the Judges #12: Jonathan Wyner

Meet Jonathan Wyner, one of our honorable judges of the Student Recording Competition at AES137 in Los Angeles.

Jonathan began his career as a Mastering Engineer in 1985 as the compact disc was becoming a reality. He studied digital mastering with one of the pioneers in the field for 5 years prior to establishing M Works Mastering. His credits range from the extremely well known (James Taylor, David Bowie, Aerosmith, Kiri Te Kanawa), to the more idiosyncratic and independent artists/labels (Aimee Mann, Tiny Tim, Rahsaan Roland Kirk). In 2005 Jonathan received a Grammy nomination for producing a program for Deborah Henson-Conant with orchestra entitled Invention and Alchemy that also aired on PBS nationally. He has several firsts/superlatives to his credit including mastering the first interactive CD Game (Play It By Ear, Rykodisc), the first recorded opera (Madame Butterfly recorded 1912 by the BBC). His skills extend forensic and restoration work.

Jonathan has taught hundreds of students about the practice of music/audio mastering at the Berklee College campus in Boston, and via the online course he co-authored with Marc Dieter-Einstmann for Berkleemusic’s online school. In June of this year he published ‘Audio Mastering: Essential Practices’ release by Hal Leonard/Berklee Press. 

He has also trained numerous assistants and interns at M Works Studios in Cambridge, MA, several of whom have gone on to become successful mastering engineers in their own right.
