An informal conversation with legendary British and American producers about the journey to the intersection where art and commerce meet. Topics will include tips and techniques for eliciting the best performance from an artist; realizing the artist’s vision without busting the budget; and the changing role of the producer in today’s increasingly homegrown environment.

Howard Massey is a leading audio industry consultant, technical writer, and author of Behind the Glass and Behind the Glass Volume II, two collections of in-depth interviews with top record producers and audio engineers widely used in recording schools the world over. He also co-authored legendary Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick’s acclaimed 2006 memoir, Here, There, and Everywhere: My Life Recording the Music of the Beatles.

This event will be prefaced by a special presentation to Sir George Martin, OBE.
