Jeff Touzeau's Making Tracks: Unique Recording Studio Environments includes hundreds of photos and interviews from a wide range of international recording studios and the personalities behind them. The book, available at www.studioenvironments.com, highlights 18 recording studios in places as diverse as France, The Bahamas and Big Sur, Calif. According to Touzeau, “My objective was to discover what made each recording environment special in its own right. I tried to cover the gamut in terms of location, music genre and personality. What quickly became apparent was that the studios often mirrored the personalities of the individuals behind them. There is an indelible and unmistakable personal signature apparent on each studio.” Schiffer Books, www.schifferbooks.com.
