    To progress successfully into employment in today’s music industry takes a lot of hard work, focus, commitment and passion.Choosing to work in the music industry is not for everyone. It also requires a strong set of competent skills and a well developed ‘creative muscle’. We aim to support you in developing all of these areas during your time at DYNAMICS School of Audio Engineering .If you are passionate about building and developing your skills in sound engineering, music production, studio recording, mixing and remixing, mastering, listening skills, creative music technology, synthesis, sampling, creative process, collaboration and much much more, then you should definitely carry on reading.It helps me at 70 to still be able to play like a child Repetition doesn’t really exist. Have you ever had that situation where someone plays a loop of a little bit of language? Something like “something like”. [Repeats the words several times.] And then, after a little while, you’re hearing “sunlight”, or “am I light”, or “light me up” – the meaning keeps changing. So obviously you know it’s not changing, it’s you who are changing. Your brain is reconfiguring, reading it in a different way. So repetition is actually a chance for your brain to do the work. Your brain becomes the composer. I think repetition is a very, very useful exercise for humans, and I’m sure this is what people who meditate and do mantras and chant and so on have discovered.Many thousands of years before I did!-Brian Eno

I don’t know if it should be requisite for every music producer or engineer. There are those who are amazing but aren’t musical or can’t talk about music theory and arrangement. Also, there are plenty of musicians in bands who have no music vocabulary whatsoever. It’s very important for what I do that I have musical knowledge; being able to count bars, and figure out the tempo and time signature. That helps me when working on a song. It’s also about having an appreciation of music. It helps that I listen to tons of classical and jazz, even though I don’t work on those types of records (I would love to do more of them). You get a sense of sound design in a totally different way if you listen to Ravel than if you listen to Eno. Anything that expands your palette and the universe you live in just gives you more to draw on.

That’s why Silence is frightening.Silence for Filmmakers is an incredible powerful tool. Cinema is the only art form that can really make you experience silence. Of course you can use it in music but you can’t use it too long. We use silence in the Theatre but we can’t use it too long. But in film, if it’s done correctly, like swimming in the water we can stay there for minutes. Because we can see what people are thinking, and above all, cinema is a theatre of thoughts. Of all art forms it allows you to see the choreography of thoughts. In terms of the actors performance and what they are thinking, that reflects in their gestures and of course in the construction of the film-Walter Murch

Looking back on your career, is there any advice you’d give to somebody starting out that you wish you knew back then?Mark Needham: One thing I do is take a lot of ‘ear breaks’, and I also switch back and forth between songs a lot. One thing that happens if you’re listening to the same song over and over for hours is, what you’re hearing may be wrong even though it sounds right. For me, I have the luxury of working on 20 songs at once so I can drop back and forth and sometimes I listen again and think “Oh my God, what was I thinking of?” So yes, taking ear breaks and keeping your ears fresh throughout the day is something I would recommend to anyone. I have to do that to keep a perspective on things. That’s a pretty important tip for anyone starting to mix and use references.

What is the essential difference between the role of the engineer and that of the producer ? Mick Glossop: The roles are becoming very blurred. Coming up as a staff engineer, I worked with a lot of producers who were completely and totally in control; the engineer was there to realize what he wanted and it was his production. But I also worked with a lot of producers where I was getting into that realm, I was half producing the record. That happens a lot, as everybody knows. All we've got is a record or CD with the credits that say produced by Joe and mixed and engineered by Fred, but nobody really knows who did what. It might have been the keyboard player in the band -- who is going to be a producer in two years time -- who actually contributed more to the production than either the producer or the engineer. We don't have enough words to describe what people do when we talk about the way records are made. But if you're an experienced engineer, then you've got that direct experience of what mics sound like, what you can do with a combination of a mic and a compressor. You're just that much more familiar with how you can get a particular sound from a particular instrument so you can get it much more quickly. Again, in the sense that the sound cannot be divorced from the music, you're tapping into what's going to happen to that musical part directly. A producer who is musical but doesn't have that link to the sound has got to rely on his engineer to do that.

Are guitar players, or musicians in general, over processing their sound?Eddie Kramer : Yeah. Yes, they are. Do I love just a guitar straight into an amp? You bet. One or two, three pedals, fantastic. I think the over-usage of pedals sort of masks the music. Yeah, it’s fun, it’s cool, it’s interesting, nice tone colors. But I’m a little bit, shall we say, prejudiced in terms of the purity of how things should sound or could sound without the intervention of a pedal board.There’s a bunch of guys who do the pedal board so bloody well and their music is still cool, so you can’t really make that accusation. But correspondingly, there are a bunch of guys who rely sort of heavily on the bloody pedal board and it sounds a little bit cheesy. If a band walks in and they’ve got a gazillion pedals on their pedal board, I say, “Guys, bypass everything. Let me hear you play straight through the amp. Let me just see what you’re doing. Oh, OK. Well, that sounds nice. Maybe we just add a little bit of this, and a touch of that. And all of a sudden, the sound is purer and heavier, fatter and in your face; and the message doesn’t get degraded.

I still work like that on most occasions. For instance, when I’m layering the recording with overdubs, I feel it’s important for me to have an idea or a sonic picture of what it should sound like in the end. Then I will commit my ideas as I go along. If I’m solid with the artist and where we’re going with the project I then create a production framework to build on. That way you’re efficiently progressing towards the final goal. When I was working with Sarah, we agreed that the CD should sound organic and dynamic. She then went on the road for 6 weeks and let me do all the production, where I would always commit to a sound I wanted. Now these days, what happens with the digital format is a lot of young people record everything without dynamic management, equalization and effects, because you can do a lot of things in mixing without introducing a lot of noise problems that might have occurred if you had to commit to a sound and a vision from the beginning. Then you have a problem when you have little idea of what the final product should sound like and you have so many options and choices you don’t know where to start with a mix. That is a major problem with educating students in recording engineering courses these days. I would even go out on a limb and state that the schools are producing students that can record properly but can’t mix. To this day, I have only met one student out of thousands that has an idea of how to mix a song. And that student is a good mixer because he is a musician first and foremost. (M.G.)
