PSNEurope is delighted to reveal that mastering engineer and Red Bull Studios Normal Not Novelty host Katie Tavini has joined its editorial team, penning a monthly column from January 2019.
Having started her studio career in various studio assistant roles with a number of bands from in and around Manchester, as well as engineering and producing her own material, Tavini made her mark in the mastering realm in 2011 when she mastered a record with punk rock outfit Sonic Boom Six. Her work on the album earned her a reputation as one of the brightest mastering engineers in the business, leading her to work on wide range of different project over the ensuing years.
Over the past 12 months, she has also featured prominently in Red Bull Studios’ award-winning Normal Not Novelty events, regularly hosting demos and workshops alongside some of the most prominent producers, engineers and DJs in the industry. Last month the Normal Not Novelty initiative won the first ever Campaign Award at the 2018 Pro Sound Awards for its outstanding working promoting gender diversity across the industry.
Now, Tavini will share her experience and expertises in a new monthly column for PSNEurope covering a multitude of themes and subjects.
“I’m really excited to be contributing to PSNEurope on a monthly basis,” Tavini said. “I’m very grateful for such a fantastic opportunity.”
Commenting on the addition of Tavini to the PSNEurope editorial team, editor Daniel Gumble said: “Katie is a brilliant addition to the PSNEurope team. Her technical expertise combined with her excellent writing skills will be a huge asset to the brand as we enter the new year and continue in our efforts to set the highest editorial standards in the business.”
