New York, NY, September 16, 2014 — The Audio Engineering Society (AES) is pleased to debut their new “Raw Tracks” series as part of this year’s Recording and Production Track at the upcoming 137th Audio Engineering Society Convention, taking place October 9-12, 2014, at the Los Angeles Convention Center. This new series features top-name producers and engineers who will discuss and deconstruct influential, classic recordings from some of music’s most highly regarded artists. Attendees can learn firsthand about details of the sessions — the gear that was used, recording technique, and other insightful production information.
Sessions in the new series include:
Recording & Production: RP1 – Raw Tracks: Fleetwood Mac — A Master Class presented by Ken Caillat about the recording of a classic song from the hit album, Rumours.
Recording & Production: RP2 – Raw Tracks: David Bowie — A track-by-track Master Class featuring a classic David Bowie recording, presented by Ken Scott.
Recording & Production: RP3 – Raw Tracks: Pet Sounds — A Master Class by three-time GRAMMY®-winner Mark Linett about two songs – “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” and “God Only Knows” – from the Beach Boys’ seminal album Pet Sounds.
Recording & Production: RP7 – Raw Tracks: Red Hot Chili Peppers — A Master Class featuring Andrew Scheps that explores the classic song “Pink As a Floyd.”
“We are pleased to be able to offer this new ‘behind-the-scenes’ track featuring the names behind the hits. Attendees are in for a truly unique experience – when it comes to learning about how the biggest hits came to life in the studio, there’s nothing like hearing it directly from those who were there,” said Bob Moses, AES Executive Director.
