Record producer and recording engineer Catherine Marks talks with George Shilling about her unique take on music production.
We were keen to find out more about the 2014 nominated MPG 'Breakthrough Engineer' and 'Engineer of the Year' Catherine Marks so George Shilling packed his trusty clip board filled with questions and headed to London with camera crew and sound guy in hot pursuit.
Catherine is a producer / engineer from Australia and is now based in the UK. She found work pretty quickly on arrival as an assistant to Flood and Alan Moulder working on stacks of exciting productions. Actually, the story of how she got to work with Flood is more complicated but we really enjoyed the feature in Tape Op and there's no need to repeat their excellent interview - we were keen to get a sense of how she works and bring over her personality - which is really important when you're looking for someone to work with for many long hours in the studio.
A short list of recent 'highlights' include working on projects with Foals, Placebo, Killers, PJ Harvey, Howling Bells, Kanye West and Ian Brown. A full discog is available on Catherine's website.
If you'd like to work with Catherine, please visit her website for the contact information!
Special thanks to Catherine and George Shilling for making this feature possible.
