On December 8, engineer and producer Sylvia Massy—whose credits include multi-Platinum and Grammy Award–winning artists including Tool, System Of A Down, Johny Cash, Prince, and others—will present the first Art & Science of Sound Recording training event at Studio Trilogy in San Francisco's South of Market neighborhood.

The ticket price of $675 includes full-day admission and all refreshments, plus a copy of Alan Parsons’ Art & Science of Sound Recording DVD set ($149 value). Parsons himself is scheduled to appear via Skype.

“We are thrilled that Sylvia is taking the reins for this event,” say ASSR producers Alan Parsons and Julian Colbeck. “Sylvia is a technical whiz and she’ll deliver a ton of hard information with her trademark innovative and artistic flair.”

Massy will record San Francisco indie band The Family Crest, an anthemic, orchestral rock collective comprising six members and fronted by Liam McCormick. The band's lineup includes cello, violin and flute.

Massy is known for managing phase relationships when recording transient sounds—a topic she discusses in Alan Parsons’ ASSR video series. Attendees will have the opportunity to study and discuss this and other techniques with Massy first-hand. Massy will bring her vocal chain and will also address at vintage compression—particularly interesting given the challenge of recording strings within an indie rock context.

Attendees should have a good working knowledge of DAW recording in order to maximize the opportunities afforded by this intensive one-day workshop.
