International news highlights from the world of live sound, recording, broadcast, postproduction and A/V
 

Rick Wakeman

Headlining the Stone Free festival at the London O2 Arena, Rick Wakeman was supported by leading artists, including Alice Cooper, The Darkness, Marillion, Therapy? and Yes guitaristSteve Hackett.

In the best traditions of prog rock, Wakeman performed with a full band and accompanying orchestra, and required a total of 120 inputs from the stage which were served by Allen & Heath’s dLive digital mixing system.

Fantasy Film Center

One of the most requested recording studios on the US West Coast, Fantasy Studios serves music, film, TV and video games with three recording and mixing rooms that have produced platinum recordings by Green Day, Journey, Aerosmith, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Santana among others.

The Fantasy Film Center mix theatre is the latest addition to the facility, refurbished and now centred on Avid Pro Tools S6 mixing and Meyer Sound cinema monitoring.

Michael Bishop

A tireless advocate of cutting-edge recording technologies, audio engineer Michael Bishop has earned ten Grammy wins in a career spanning almost 45 years. He served as the Chief Recording Engineer for Telarc Records until Concord Music Group abandoned in-house production, and is now a partner in Five/Four Productions with former Telarc colleagues, Robert Friedrich and Thomas Moore.

His most recent projects include the recording of two new pieces by Jonathan Leshnoff, a traditional multitrack studio session with Eighth Blackbird, and the hip-hop/orchestral fusion of Pharrell Williams with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. Although he’s never advocated ‘documentary-style’ recordings, Bishop is riding the movement of traditional classical recordings towards movie soundtracks.

Avon Recording Studio A

Immensely popular for his music and intensely passionate about analogue recording, Cantopop singer and songwriter Hins Cheung has taken over operation of Hong Kong’s Avon Recording Studios – joining his purpose-built Village Studios complex in Guangzhou.

Hong Kong’s premier recording facility for many years, Avon has been refitted by Mode Engineering’s Peter Higgs on Cheung’s instruction, with classic analogue equipment supplied by Funky Junk, and cabling and wiring assemblies from VDC Trading.
