Recording Unhinged Nominated for NAAM Tech Award
Congratulations are in order! Recording Unhinged: Creative & Unconventional Music Recording Techniques, by Sylvia Massy, has been nominated for a NAAM Technical Excellence & Creativity (TEC) Award at the 32nd annual show. These awards will be presented January 21, 2017 in Anaheim, California.
Sylvia has worked with the likes of Tool, System of a Down, Johnny Cash, and Prince. In addition she’s received a multitude of gold and platinum awards for her work with Sevendust, the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and and Tom Petty. Aside from music she’s an accomplished fine artist, columnist, educator, and entrepreneur. Why not add author to that list?
Recording Unhinged: Creative and Unconventional Music Recording Techniques dares you to “unlearn” safe record-making, to get out from behind the windshield, stick your head out the sunroof, and put the pedal to the metal! Sylvia Massy and her cohort of celebrity music industry producers, engineers, and recording stars discard fixed notions about how music should be recorded and explore techniques that fall outside the norm and yield emotionally powerful, incredibly personal, gut-wrenching, and even scary recordings.
Recording Unhinged contains captivating, eye-popping illustrations by Sylvia herself. As if being a celebrated producer isn’t enough, Sylvia’s iconic illustrations bring real and imaginary recording situations to life.
