Sennheiser "Pro Talk" Series Provides A Stage For World-Renowned Sound Engineers
“This series presents a brilliant opportunity to get to know some of the world’s most renowned live sound and studio engineers on a personal level. As well as being entertaining, the conversations between these experts and our artist relations team offer deep insights into an audio engineer’s life,” explains James Capparelle, marketing communications manager at Sennheiser. “This is especially helpful for those who are beginning their careers in audio and look up to industry experts. In each interview, we hear candid accounts from the engineer’s early beginnings all the way through to some of their most recent projects. It’s fascinating from start to finish.”
Already available on the channel are filmed interviews with Manny Marroquin of Larrabee Studios, who has worked with Rihanna, Kanye West and John Mayer; Jim Ebdon, who is the front-of-house engineer for Maroon 5 and has worked with Aerosmith, Sting and the Pet Shop Boys; Stephen Curtin, who is the front-of-house engineer for Beyoncé; and producer legend Al Schmitt, who worked with the likes of Frank Sinatra, Miles Davis and Sam Cooke as a producer and recording engineer.
These interviews and several more upcoming interviews were recorded in the United States, but the series is scheduled to travel to Europe later this year. “Upcoming engineer guests will, for example, include Nevin Steinberg, sound designer for the Broadway hit musical Hamilton, Ken Travis, who sound designed the musical Aladdin, and Prince Charles Alexander, audio engineer and educator who has worked with Mary J. Blige and Alicia Keys,” says James Caparelle. “So stay tuned for new episodes every Tuesday and Thursday.”
