London, UK (May 6, 2011)–The upcoming AES 130th Convention in London will host producer/musician Barry Marshall’s presentation: Phil Spector And The Legacy of The Svengali Producer.
An in-depth exploration of Spector’s genius, the event will take place on Sunday, May 15, 14:30 — 16:15, during the 130st Audio Engineering Convention, which will be held at the Novotel London West Convention Center, May 13-16, 2011.
As influential as he is controversial, Phil Spector created an unrivaled legacy of innovative music production techniques and, a priceless treasure of unforgettable music performances.
Marshall will trace Spector’s evolution, from his early career as an artist, his apprenticeship with Atlantic Records and Leiber & Stoller, his flowering as a producer-mogul with his Philles record label, his initial “retirement” in 1967, his re-invention as the producer of John Lennon and George Harrison and his later work with artists like the Ramones.
The lecture will emphasize Spector’s evolution from the initial creation of his “Wall of Sound” through his Svengali-like approach to artist development. Numerous examples of Spector’s work will be played throughout the event.
This event is jointly hosted by the AES and the APRS, the Association of Professional Recording Services.
