It is acoustically and aesthetically stunning, with a warm, rich reverb conveyed by wood panel walls arranged in a spectacular geometry. For years, the school struggled to provide the hall with sound reinforcement for spoken word, solos, and non-classical musical forms that matched the splendor of unamplified instruments. That struggle ended with the purchase of a… View this post

    Spend a few minutes chatting with globe-trotting Italian producer/engineer Pietro Foresti, and it’s easy to see that he’s passionate about his work. It’s a joy that’s contagious; his love of music is equaled by his excitement about the artists he works with and the technology he uses to create and record it. A true musical chameleon, Foresti’s diverse discography ranges from the metal-tinged punch of Tracii Guns (L.A. Guns, Guns & Roses) and power punk of Scott Russo (Unwritten Law)… View this post
