I AM ONE OF THEM!
Why in the world did they pick me? I'm wondering the same thing, but I'll take it! I submitted a couple songs I had produced and engineered; I answered a few questions about my background; I hit "send"; it was reviewed before a panel... Last week I got this in my inbox:"As you know, these exceptional weeklong music production seminars are an opportunity for recording and mixing engineers to come and work closely with A-List record producers, engineers and mixers and improve their skills in music production. We think you have an interesting background and we would be glad to welcome you for the seminar with EDDIE KRAMER from APRIL 13 to 19, 2015."
I have been selected to spend a week at Studio La Fabrique http://studioslafabrique.com/Introduction.html in beautiful Saint-Rémy de Provence (south of France) in an old, beginning of the 19th century farm. The studio is right in the middle of one of the most impressive classical music collections in the world: 200,000 vinyls, 30,000 films, thousands of books... It features state of the art equipment and esoteric acoustic spaces.
Even better, I'll spend the week working closely with Eddie Kramer http://mixwiththemasters.com/kramer/ learning the secrets of his recording techniques that has gotten him into the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame. In short, he's worked with The Beatles, Kiss, Peter Frampton, Buddy Guy, David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Carlos Santana and most of all, Jimi Hendrix—Kramer engineered all four albums released during the guitarist’s life, as well as five Led Zeppelin studio albums (to name a few - and yes, there are many more).
This all happens the week of April 13-19th. So, I need to get started right away in order to get the money raised to make this happen. The cost covers everything including meals prepared by an in-house chef, room and board at the mansion, and the time with Eddie. Thanks for considering helping fund this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
