For the sixth year in a row at the ASCAP “I Create Music Expo” in Hollywood, The Professional Monitor Company (PMC) & Vintage King Audio presented sessions with music Industry leaders sharing their knowledge and experience with in-depth Q&As.
Since the first Expo in 2006, ASCAP has further developed the only national conference that specifically speaks to those looking to advance their songwriting and compositional skills. “Production Secrets For Songwriters” addressed songwriters and artists who want to learn the production, arrangement and mix tricks and tips. Leading the discussion were famed producers/mixers Rob Chiarelli and Michael James.
Getting his start at Paramount Recording Studios in the late 1980s, Rob Chiarelli scored early hits with his work on Teddy Pendergrass and Noveau records. In the time since, he’s worked as a mixer and producer with pop music artists such as Will Smith, Christina Aguilera, P!nk and Charlie Wilson.
Splitting time between the A&R department and a recording console, Michael James has worked on both sides of the industry since the late 1980s. After a stint at Warner Music Discovery, James founded an indie label, Alternator Records, which led to work with New Radicals, A.J. Croce, Edwin McCain and more. In 2009, James helped co-create IndieProMix, a service that links indie artists with professional mixers for extremely affordable rates.
PMC is a UK based, world-leading manufacturer of professional monitor speaker systems, which are in service with premiere music recording studios, post production and audio mastering facilities worldwide. PMC showcased at ASCAP 2015 their monitors, which have been chosen by many artists, engineers and producers as their reference for accurate monitoring.
