The event took place at a wonderful studio called Esplanade Studios (http://www.esplanadestudios.com/) built out in a church space. It’s just beautiful! The building is 14,000 square feet, replete with a huge recording space that can comfortably accommodate an orchestra, a fully functional church organ and three small separate production and mastering rooms. A testament to the large room: When Geoff Emerick played examples through the PA into the live space they sounded fantastically clear and focused.
Special thanks to Deston Bennett of the Recording Academy and John Hornyak, Memphis chapter Executive Director, and Reid Wick Memphis Chapter Sr. Membership & Project Manager, for hosting an event on behalf of such a dedicated and eager group of working professionals. An archived recording of this workshop will be available for future viewing via the GRAMMY Pro website.
