Upcoming: My interview with Dave Pensado and Herb Trawick
I am about to have the opportunity to interview two people who were instrumental in the production of Ever One, though they likely have no idea about that fact. Pensado's Place is required weekly listening in my book, offering up exquisite interviews with audio professionals and artists and incredible tips and walkthroughs on how hard working folks in the industry maneuver the wild waters of music production.
Dave Pensado is a Grammy award winning mixing engineer with an impressive list of clients and projects including Michael Jackson, Pink, Christina Aguilera, and more. Herb Trawick is his manager and professional businessman in the music industry. Both work together tightly as a team to produce educational and engaging content week after week with Pensado's Place. It's kind of like a magician showing his craft to the world, and it's completely free.
They've also released a new book called The Pensado Papers that goes into detail about their background, and how they became Internet superstars with Pensado's Place. And finally, last year, they launched the first annual Pensado Awards, recognizing the hard work and dedication of professional and up-and-coming audio engineers, the people behind the scenes of some of the music industry's biggest hits.
On next week's Triangulation, I get to interview these two for an hour and I have a ton of questions for them. After all, I've spent so much time listening to them that I practically feel like I know them on a personal level. Consequently, this is something I hear from many fans of my work in podcast over the past ten years at TWiT and CNET. It's cool to be on the other side of that, and not to mention, humbling.
If you have any questions for these guys, please drop them in the comments below and I will do my best to ask them, complete with attribution to you if I use your question.
