The Grammy Awards audio crew poses for a shot.

The Grammy Awards audio crew poses for a shot.

The Emmy- and TEC Award-winning audio team assembled at the foot of the Staples Center again this year for production of the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, held January 31 in Los Angeles. While Brendan O'Brien won for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical; Steven Epstein won for Producer, Classical; Imogen Heap won for Best Engineered, Non-Classical; and Peter Laenger, Best Engineered, Classical, an ace audio team was getting the sound on the air.

Inside the Staples Center, Mike Abbot served as audio coordinator, Ron Reaves mixed front of house with Leslie Ann Jones representing the Grammys at his side, Dave Bellamy handled the multiple wireless systems, and Phil Ramone, Hank Neuberger and Glenn Lorbecki tag-teamed in the Summit Denali trucks to check sound before CBS went to air, and then to monitor it from Peer Group input across the country. Outside, the music mix was handled by John Harris and Eric Schilling out of mirror-image Music Mix Mobile trucks, with technical direction by co-owner Joel Singer and support by co-owner of the West Coast vehicle, Mark Linett.
