Adventure Recording with Sylvia Massy

For all the perceived ‘right’ ways to capture sound, recording technology continues to yield new creative possibilities as it evolves. The most visionary artists, producers and engineers look beyond the conventional ways of recording to break through into exciting new realms of musical experimentation.

Sylvia Massy has an accomplished career in American alternative music, working with rock titans such as Tool, System Of A Down and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Her work has never been limited to guitar-based music though – as a producer, mixer and engineer she’s touched upon all kinds of styles. In 2016, she channeled years of experience and extensive conversations with celebrated producers into writing Recording Unhinged. Using her book as a jumping-off point, Massy guides the audience on a fun ride through the creative avenues that open up when you shrug off traditional ways of approaching a recording session.
