We know that producers are integral to the recording process, but even some in the industry are still confused as to exactly what producers do. While the scope of their role can vary, every music producer has their own approach. Renowned engineer, artist and educator Sylvia Massy prides herself on her unconventional production techniques. Massy has worked with artists from Prince to Tool, always bringing her unique perspective and creativity to producing. On this episode, we put the spotlight on Massy and her new book, Recording Unhinged: Creative and Unconventional Music Recording. We also talk to Grammy-nominated producer Tucker Martine about his methods. And stay tuned for our special interview with Libera Awards nominee Hugues Payen of Caravan Palace!
