Creativity in the engineer’s chair with Young Guru

In conversation with Jesse Terry

A good engineer is more than just a person who moves faders; it’s someone who understands how to realize both the producer’s vision and the artist’s sound. But a really good engineer is someone who can bring their own artistic and creative vision to the session in a way that results in a better record.

In this talk, Young Guru will discuss how his approach to making records allows him to move fluidly between the roles of co-pilot, audio specialist, and even musician, and how today’s engineer can (and should) be so much more than a technician with good ears.
