The music world is full of people who worked hard, and influenced the technological progress in making music more accessible to the every-day creator. One of these people was legendary producer George Martin, who passed away in March.
This icon changed the way recording studios were used. Before his work with The Beatles, studios were only places to capture an artist’s performance, but through his innovative approach, George Martin helped turn the studio into an exciting room full of creative possibilities. He was one of the first people to use reverse sound effects, tape delays, doubled vocals, flangers and many other techniques that are currently extremely popular in all genres of music, including electronica.
The “Fab Four” often dubbed him as the “5th Beatle” for his influence on their sound: he contributed to the band’s incredible recordings and helped them make history. From otherworldly sounds in reverse to distorted vocals and sonic collage, George Martin did to the world of recording what we are doing to music production fans here in New York: enabling the creative spirits and destroying all the boundaries.
