Infrasonic Sound's vintage Neumann lathe
Los Angeles, CA (April 27, 2011)--The Grammy Museum in Los Angeles will host From Vision to Vinyl: A Step-by-Step Look at Vinyl Production on Wednesday, May 18, 2011.
The panel will address the entire vinyl manufacturing process, from tracking and mastering audio with a vinyl release in mind, through pressing, packaging and design. Independent artists and labels releasing vinyl for the first time, those looking to reacquaint themselves with the process, or music fans interested in learning more are encouraged to attend.
Moderated by Neil Scheild of Origami Vinyl, an all-vinyl record store and independent label in Echo Park, From Vision to Vinyl will not only offer a behind the scenes look at manufacturing, it will also provide guidance for maximizing the creative options available for a vinyl release while staying on schedule and within budget. Panelists include Pete Lyman of Infrasonic Sound Recording Co., Kevin Smith of Bill Smith Custom Records, Jennifer Freund of DoradoPkg, and DJ/founder of Stones Throw Records, Peanut Butter Wolf.
"As vinyl resurges back into artists' and record labels' plans, more and more options for producing, manufacturing, and printing come up," says Scheild. "Our goal is to help you cut through the tape and provide you with the information needed to help you understand the process and its pros and cons."
"Many of Infrasonic Sound's newer clients oftentimes start the vinyl mastering process without knowing what the next step is," says Lyman, who is co-owner and principal mastering engineer of Infrasonic Sound. "This panel provides an opportunity to explain the vinyl production process from start to finish and creates an amazing network of professionals in not only the music industry, but also the vinyl community."
Doors open at 7:30 p.m. This event is free and open to the public, but reservations are required (213-765-6800 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
