The six-part hands-on course is will take place at the Institute’s downtown facilities between June 11-29, 2012 (full details below). Being an NYU student is not required for registration – this course is open to the public, and costs $1915 with a $250 lab fee.
Pagano is a member of the Fab Faux, has countless records and network TV credits, and founder of New Calcutta Studios in the garment district (read the full SonicScoop feature on him right here). His new course should provide a wealth of information for engineers, producers, and drummers interested in advancing their drum-recording abilities.
Here are more details about “The Art of Recording Classic Drums”, straight from Pagano:
“Drum sounds have the potential to exhibit as much personality on a recording as a vocalist or soloist. However, a great drum sound can be difficult to obtain. Through this course, the creative student will learn the techniques necessary to expand their acoustic drum-sound ‘library.’
This hands-on studio course covers techniques of instrument and head selection, micing, tuning, and recording the ‘classic’ drum sounds typified by Ringo Starr, Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound (Hal Blaine), Rudy Van Gelder’s jazz sound (Miles Davis), Motown, drum sounds of the early 70s and John Bonham.
The workshop will be complemented with extensive historical documentation culled from personal interviews with engineering legends Geoff Emerick (Beatles), Elliot Scheiner (Steely Dan), Chris Huston (Led Zeppelin), session set-up sheets and photos.
