New York, NY (June 9, 2017)—Sennheiser has launched its new Pro Talk video series on the company’s YouTube channel, interviewing noted sound engineers and producers, including Manny Marroquin, Jim Ebdon, Stephen Curtin and Al Schmitt.
Throughout the twice-weekly series, guests discuss topics ranging from their early years in the business, to professional challenges and their favorite music. New episodes are posted every Tuesday and Thursday; already online are interviews with the likes of Manny Marroquin of Larrabee Studios, who has worked with Rihanna, Kanye West and John Mayer; Jim Ebdon, who is the front-of-house engineer for Maroon 5 and has worked with Aerosmith, Sting and the Pet Shop Boys; Stephen Curtin, who is the front-of-house engineer for Beyoncé; and the legendary Al Schmitt, who worked with the likes of Frank Sinatra, Miles Davis and Sam Cooke as a producer and recording engineer.
While currently focusing on interviewees in the United States, the series is scheduled to travel to Europe later this year. Upcoming engineer guests will include Nevin Steinberg, sound designer for the Broadway hit musical Hamilton; Ken Travis, who sound designed the musical Aladdin; and Prince Charles Alexander, audio engineer and educator who has worked with Mary J. Blige and Alicia Keys,” says James Caparelle, marketing communications manager at Sennheiser.
Capparelle noted that the series is intended to be “especially helpful for those who are beginning their careers in audio and look up to industry experts. In each interview, we hear candid accounts from the engineer’s early beginnings all the way through to some of their most recent projects. It’s fascinating from start to finish.”
