Los Angeles (July 5, 2011)–Multi-Platinum engineer, producer and artist Alan Parsons will hold his first US Master Class Training Session in Los Angeles later this month.
Taking place on July 22-23 2011, the event will allow a select group of attendees to make a record with Parsons at Village Studios in Los Angeles. The Level 3 (advanced) Master Class Training Session will comprise a live tracking session including piano, guitar and keyboard overdubs, lead and backing vocals and a mix. The two-day workshop expands upon many of the techniques and practices shown in Parsons’ Art & Science Of Sound Recording video series.
Attendees not only observe but will also participate in all aspects of a professional recording session, from setting up a live tracking session to working on a final mix. Stages include miking drums and piano, getting optimum separation, general mic selection, recording keyboard and guitar overdubs, recording lead and backing vocals.
At the end of the workshop, attendees will take away a mix of the track they have been working on. They will also have the opportunity to take away the Session file for further inspection after the event.
Day 1 commences at 10 AM with a live tracking session including piano, followed by keyboard and guitar overdubs. The opening day concludes with a 1 1/2 hour informal Q&A session with Parsons and the session players.
Day 2 starts with recording lead and backing vocals, alongside a breakout session on recording keyboards. The mix will comprise the entire afternoon session. Photo opportunities and presentation of certificates will conclude Day 2 at 7.30 PM.
