San Francisco, CA (November 16, 2012)—Sylvia Massey, an engineer and producer who has worked with Tool, System of a Down, Johnny Cash, and Prince, will offer her first ASSR training event at Studio Trilogy in SoMa, San Francisco on December 8, 2012.
Massy is known for her love of managing phase relationships when recording transient sounds—a topic she discusses in the Alan Parsons’ ASSR video series. Attendees will have the golden opportunity to study and discuss this and other ‘techie’ techniques with her first-hand. Massy will bring her vocal chain and will also be looking at vintage compression—particularly interesting given the challenge of strings within an indie rock context.
The artist being recorded during the session is San Francisco indie six-piece, The Family Crest, an anthemic, orchestral rock collective fronted by Liam McCormick that features ‘cello, violin and flute in the line-up.
Attendees should also have a good working knowledge of DAW recording in order to maximize the opportunities afforded by this intensive one-day workshop.
“We are thrilled that Sylvia is taking the reins for this event,” say ASSR producers Alan Parsons and Julian Colbeck. “Sylvia is a technical whiz and she’ll deliver a ton of hard information with her trademark innovative and artistic flair.”
Studio Trilogy is a John Storyk-designed studio in the SoMa district of San Francisco that has played host to a wide range of recording artists including the Kronos Quartet, Primus, R Kelly and St. Vincent.
The ticket price of $675 includes full day admission, all refreshments plus a copy of the Alan Parsons’ Art & Science Of Sound Recording DVD set ($149 value). Parsons himself is scheduled to appear via Skype during what will be an action-packed and inspiring day in the studio for all concerned.
