Los Angeles, CA—June, 2012
Alfred Music Publishing, the world leader in educational print music publishing since 1922, distributes Artists on Recording Techniques, an educational resource that examines the recording process from the artist’s perspective, from Course Technology PTR, a division of Cengage Learning.
Artists on Recording Techniques provides a rare view into the creative process of some of history’s most legendary musicians. Aspiring musicians, producers, audio engineers, studio owners, equipment manufacturers, and hardware/software designers alike will be exposed to tips, tricks, and modes of operation in the studio not commonly shared with the general public. The books covers recording techniques from vocals to guitar and drums through exclusive full-length interviews from author Jeff Touzeau’s "Music, Etc." column in Pro Sound News and never-before published bonus material. The discussions dip into an array of musical styles and genres, providing insight into the recording process from such well-known pop and rock artists as Roger Waters (Pink Floyd), Nick Rhodes (Duran Duran), Gerry Beckley (America), Steven Page (Barenaked Ladies), Joe Jackson, Tony Bennett, John Fogerty, and many more. Photos documenting the various makes and models of sound equipment used, along with candid artist photos are also included.
Jeff Touzeau is a writer and musician living in New York. He has published several music technology and pro audio titles, including Careers in Audio. As a journalist, Touzeau’s work has appeared in Electronic Music (formerly EQ magazine), Pro Sound News, Tape Op, Performing Songwriter, Professional Sound, and many other magazines. When he isn’t writing, Jeff composes and records in his own personal studio called Hummingbird Sound. ABOUT ALFRED MUSIC PUBLISHING
