It's a mid-week escape from the 'windowless-environment' - aka 'the Studio' - it's The Star Chamber Audio Lunch Bunch.
Too many of us music and audio artisans spend w-a-y too much time in isolation... and bad air! This is a chance for our Tribe (recording engineers, record producers, gear manufacturers, tech wizards, studio managers, musicians) get a weekly chance to meet up and enjoy the food, adult beverages... and the camaraderie!
It all began with the crew from host, Pete Doell's, former stomping ground: Universal Mastering Studio, L.A....now closed. But the crew has expanded the Wednesday oasis to now have a weekly attendance of 30 - 50, with lotsa repeat-offenders in that figure!
What's so satisfying (besides the nourishment - both corporal AND spiritual) is the great number of my music-biz heroes (and who I am proud to say are friends) make it a point to have it circled on their calendars! We ALL need occasionally to remember what it's like to eat our lunch at the 'kool kid's table'!
E.G.: Jack Douglas this past Wednesday mentioned how busy HE is working bicoastally. He has one project going where Jay Messina (Record Plant, NYC) will be mixing a handful, Geoff Emerick (Beatles!) has got 5, and my pal and associate, Shelly Yakus (everybody else!) mixing another 5!
Check back for more - the weather outside's DELIGHTFUL!
