(New York City)—Mix magazine has announced that the production team behind Joe Bonamassa’s “Time Clocks” will take part in MixNYC: Immersive Music Production, an all-day, in-person event to be held August 6, 2022, at the world-class facilities of the world-renowned Berklee NYC/Power Station Studios, right in the heart of Midtown.

The Bonamassa production team includes A-list mix engineer Bob Clearmountain, who returns after many years to the studios where he began his career, producer Kevin Shirley, recording engineer Jason Staniulis, and Troy Germano, owner of Germano Studios, The Hit Factory, where the tracks were recorded.

Previously, MixNYC announced the Keynote Conversation, which includes the production team of George Massenburg, Ann Mincieli, Eric Schilling and Michael Roimanowski, who will begin the day by discussing the process of putting together Alicia Keys’ Alicia, the 2022 Grammy Award winner for Best Immersive Audio Album. 

“We have a stellar lineup coming together, made up of the top talent in the recording industry,” says Tom Kenny, co-editor of Mix. ”George, Ann, Eric,  Michael, Bob, Kevin, Jason and Troy? All have graciously jumped onboard because they want to talk about   these projects. With Atmos Music, Sony Reality Audio, Apple Spatial, and all the changes taking place, this is a new and exciting time for music. We want to talk  about  it.”

MixNYC, the first industry event to focus entirely on Immersive Music Production, will be held entirely within the recently refurbished, six-studio, three-story, world-renowned Berklee NYC (Power Station Studios) complex. Expert panel presentations on recording, mixing and distributing immersive music will follow the Keynote Conversation, along with sponsor demonstrations, new product exhibits, one-on-one interviews, multiple networking opportunities, and more.

Panels and Panelists announced so far include:
