Join us at Studios La Fabrique to learn from a creative force who pushes the boundaries of audio engineering – the great Sylvia Massy! Our first video series with this revered producer explores her mixing process behind the song 'Wings' by Future Moon. Using a Neve 88R and outboard equipment, Massy builds an analog mix of the musically dense project. You'll witness how she blends and processes live drums, percussion, bass, guitars, piano, keyboard, vibraphone, strings, lead vocals, and a choir. Aside from demonstrating her mix techniques, you'll get a glimpse into her bold approach to arrangement – muting parts that don't help, adding new ones where necessary, and even changing the song structure to have a more powerful ending!
