The Stories Behind the Hit Recordings!
"Make Mine Music" is a fascinating read for professional musicians, recording engineers and music fans alike! In "Make Mine Music" legendary recording engineer (and diehard Sweetwater customer) Bruce Swedien tells his story in his own words. And what a story it is! While you'll get the standard autobiographical information ("I first became intrigued by the art of recording music at the tender age of 10"), this book is jam packed with a goldmine of information, no matter what you're involvement in making, recording, or listening to music. Sweetwater President Chuck Surack says, "This is one of the most engaging, entertaining and informative books I've read in years. I highly recommend it!"
If you've ever wanted to be a fly on the wall at a Duke Ellington session, or wondered what a typical session with Michael Jackson is like, this book will tell you. What's more, Swedien generously gives away detailed information from his lifetime in the studio, including insights into psychoacoustics, how he approaches the stereo soundfield, microphone selection and placement techniques, the art of mixing, and the role of technology in capturing musical inspiration. An invaluable research tool for the recording musician, engineer and producer, "Make Mine Music" is also an incredibly engaging and entertaining read no matter what your level of technical expertise and interest. The book provides a behind the scenes look at the process of creating and recording some of the best music ever produced, straight from the man in the middle of it all.Make Mine Music Details:
