Recording and Production in the News
JAMES and Prism Sound launch training weekends for passionate music makersCambridge, UK: A series of training weekends for engineers, producers and all other creative audio enthusiasts will get under way in May, 2010, thanks to a joint initiative involving high end recording and broadcast equipment manufacturer Prism Sound/SADiE and JAMES, the education arm of the Music Producers Guild (MPG), the Association of Professional Recording Services (APRS), and the UK Screen Association.
Billed as the Mic To Master Series these two day recording technique, mixing and mastering masterlasses and seminars will run at various colleges around the UK, with the first taking place at Deep Blue Sound in Plymouth on May 7th and May 8th, 2010.
Each event will feature keynote-style lectures addressing specific topics, masterclasses with renowned producers and listening sessions where participants can play some of their own work and discuss techniques to overcome specific problems. There will also be manufacturer sessions highlighting the latest cutting edge technology, practical demonstrations to show how technology can solve problems and forums where participants can fire questions at producers and manufacturing experts.
Phil Harding, chairman of JAMES, says: "This is a great opportunity for those who are passionate about music recording, mixing and mastering and want to learn more. These events give music makers an opportunity to learn from professionals who are willing to share their expertise and impart some useful tricks of the trade. By holding them in JAMES accredited Universities and colleges we are also able to fulfil JAMES' remit of furthering links between Education and the Media Industries and make sure that many years of professional experience are not lost to future generations."
The first course, at Deep Blue Sound, will feature guest lecturers Tony Platt, Al Stone, Simon Heyworth and Alan O'Connell, all of whom have a wealth of experience in the professional recording industry as producer and/or engineers and have worked with the likes of Jamiroquai, Mystery Jets, Depeche Mode and AC/DC.
