L-R: Elliot Scheiner, Andrew Scheps and Tom Fleischman
New York, NY (July 25, 2013)—Engineers Andrew Scheps, Elliot Scheiner and Tom Fleischman were the star attractions at a joint presentation of the P&E Wing and the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) Audio Division in New York City recently.
On the evening of Wednesday, June 26, 2013, in New York City, “Hear It Like I Hear It” was scheduled in conjunction with CE Week in New York, and was held at Manhattan’s Alison 18 restaurant, just a few blocks from the CE Week exhibits.
The first half of the evening featured GRAMMY-winning engineer Andrew Scheps’ presentation “Lost In Translation,” again part of the P&E Wing and CEA Audio Division’s ongoing “Quality Sound Matters” initiative, which educates about and demonstrates the importance of high-quality audio. The lecture provided an engaging, revelatory and humorous presentation of current audio format comparisons.
Scheps has engineered and mixed for some of the biggest acts in the business, including Adele, Green Day, Linkin Park, Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers and U2. He is a two-time GRAMMY winner for his work on the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Stadium Arcadium and Adele’s 21 albums and was named the 2012 International Recording Engineer of the Year by the UK’s Music Producers Guild.
The evening’s second half focused on audio in film, and GRAMMY-winning engineer Elliot Scheiner and prominent re-recording mixer Tom Fleischman discussed their recent project, the documentary film History of the Eagles. Showing clips from the documentary, Fleischman and Scheiner discussed how they were able to remix audio from vintage live recordings of the band for the documentary’s rich 5.1 surround sound format. Scheiner has worked with the Eagles for decades, putting him in a unique position to reflect the band’s signature sound and original creative intent on the newly mixed footage, and he discussed this process in the context of their classic albums and recording sessions.
