Recordingography

The recordings we reference when we study recording.

The goal is to sketch out key moments when recording craft contributed notably to the final sound.  Each entry could fit on a postcard – short and sweet and to the point.  We needn’t obsess with exactly how they did it; we just want some ideas for how we might do something similar at our studio.  Explore your own variations, inspired by these recordings.
