Portland, OR (May 20, 2015)—Barefoot Sound has launched a new video series, Masters of the Craft, with a first episode that features Eddie Kramer, Chris Lord-Alge, Jack Joseph Puig and Butch Vig, along with company founder Thomas Barefoot.
"Getting together with some of the most amazing producers and mixers in the world is certainly a kick for me," commented Barefoot. "I see the sound space expanding and I want to be one of the people who helps it expand. Those who make great products and are raising the bar have inspired me. We are striving to raise that bar and contribute to how the music gets made."
Masters of the Craft will reportedly be an ever-growing series of videos with a variety of music-makers, including lesser-known journeyman engineers and musicians who call on Barefoot to accomplish their daily production goals.
Producer, engineer and musician Butch Vig added, in the video, "I have a pair of Barefoot MM27s in my home studio that I've had for quite a while and I've been using them on the upcoming Garbage album. I've also used them on the Foo Fighters’ Sonic Highways album, which we recorded in eight different studios around the country. It was good to have them for that project, because every room we went into sounded completely different. It was invaluable to have those speakers as a reference every time we listened to the music."
