New York (November 3, 2004)–Last month, Manhattan Center Productions (MCP) hosted 120 audio recording students from Japan to provide them with an appreciation of New York recording and entertainment industries. The event was coordinated by Joel Scheuneman, MCP’s director of audio operations, and Toshiaki Tomita of the Harlem Connection.
The centerpiece of the morning event was a question and answer session with recording engineer Jay Messina. With the help of Japanese translator, Shinya Miyamoto, Messina shared some of his insights into the recording process with the Japanese students.
Scheuneman also led the students on a tour of the Manhattan Center entertainment complex. The tour included stops in MCP’s Studio 4, Studio 7 and Studio 9 video post production suites, as well as the Grand Ballroom and the Hammerstein Ballroom. The students were also able to tour the Manhattan Center’s upgraded television studios.
