Welcome to the EA club!
No matter how hard you try, when you put a bunch of recording engineers in a room, the talk always turns to music, audio gear, artists, divas, more gear, then music war stories. Mix in a few drinks and the evening takes off! The talk turns to what happened during and after recording sessions, the good stuff. This became known as an “Engineers Anonymous” meeting.
Engineers Anonymous (EA) became a routine in the studio, in a place that has no routine, where there is never a dull moment.
The engineers’ posting their stories here are all part of the clan. They have been in the trenches with the most prominent artists in the music business. From the time you start in the music business, and until after you have moved on, these moments from the endless hours of sessions stay with you. How many days did you stay up? Did you have a deadline and didn’t sleep for a week? Did the artist decide to write and record a new song while we were mixing the last song on the record? Did someone erase track seven, not 17 (analog days)! It’s a reality; these things happen all the time.
Because of the crazy hours and crazy events, great stories come out when Engineers Anonymous gets together.
This is the music business…the lives of many techs, engineers, producers, and musicians.
Feel free to submit your story. The posts may be edited to protect the innocent, but we intend to have ALL the stories told. Write your story, press the submit button, and you’re on your way.
*We eventually will accept audio and video clips as well. The stories must live on!
