As we come up on the 2012 AES Convention – October 27-29 at San Francisco’s Moscone Center – we’d like to revisit what some of last year’s AES attendees told us was their favorite panel discussion. We happened to produce it, and now have it to share as video.
“AES Platinum Engineers: The Studio As An Instrument” brought an incredible panel of studio gurus into a discussion about creative recording techniques and fascinating collaborations. Those panelists included some of our favorite producers and engineers: Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, MGMT), Peter Katis (The National, Jonsi), Damien Taylor (Bjork, The Prodigy) and Chris Shaw (Weezer, Bob Dylan). SonicScoop contributor, Justin Colletti, led the discussion.
The full version of the panel has been edited down slightly to just over 90 minutes in order to streamline the flow of the conversation without losing any of the insights or personality our panelists brought to bear. Check it out below – watch, listen, learn.
