World-class music producers heading to New Zealand

The third New Zealand Music Producer Series will be held in Auckland from 30 October to 10 November.

Presented by Recorded Music New Zealand and curated by producer Greg Haver with support from NZ On Air, APRA AMCOS NZ, SAE Auckland and Auckland Council, the series brings internationally renowned producers and engineers to New Zealand to host public seminars at Auckland’s Roundhead Studio.

This year’s renowned visiting producers are Sylvia Massy (Tool, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, System Of A Down) and Gil Norton (Foo Fighters, Pixies, Throwing Muses, Belly, Jimmy Eat World), who will also be joined by New Zealand sound engineer and Tui winner Clint Murphy (Devilskin, Manic Street Preachers, Thunder, Melanie C).

Sylvia Massy began her career as part of the San Francisco alt-punk scene in the all-female band Revolver. In the late 1980’s she became engineer at Larrabee Sound in Los Angeles engineering for Prince, Paula Abdul, Big Daddy Kane, Seal and Aerosmith.

Her production work with the band Green Jello led her to produce the “Undertow” and “Opiate” albums for Tool. She then began work with producer Rick Rubin, which included System Of A Down, Smashing Pumpkins, Tom Petty and Johnny Cash.

After a stint at Sound City Studios she set up her own RadioStar studios in Weed, California. Massy now travels widely, holding seminars around the world to share her unusual techniques for manipulating sound.

This will be Massy’s first trip to New Zealand: “Visiting and participating in the NZ Music Producer Series is a dream come true," she says.

Massy with be hosting a four-day production and engineering workshop from 7 to 10 November, along with an evening public seminar on 6 November.

Gil Norton started his career as an engineer at Liverpool’s Amazon Studios, he soon emerged as a world-class record producer, working with highly influential bands such as Pixies on their “Doolittle” and “Bossa Nova” albums, along with their label mates Throwing Muses and Belly.

His subsequent production for artists such as Counting Crows, Feeder, Dashboard Confessional, the Distillers and Jimmy Eat World cemented his reputation. Some of his most high-profile work came when he produced “The Colour and the Shape” and the Grammy award-winning “Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace” for Foo Fighters.

“I’m truly excited to be coming back to New Zealand, it’s one of my favourite places on the planet and I know it’s filled with talented musicians, producers and engineers,” says Norton.

Clint Murphy is an award-winning producer, engineer and mixer who began his career as an engineer at York Street Studios in Auckland, working with both New Zealand and international artists and producers, securing a Vodafone NZ Music Award for his work on Blindspott’s self-titled album.

He has since had three further Tui nominations and won Best Engineer again in 2017 for Devilskin’s second album “Be Like The River”.

Currently based in the UK he’s become an in-demand engineer, mix engineer and songwriter, working with international acts Thunder, Melanie C, Chinaski, Codes and Trouble Gang. He also works developing new artists including Youth Club, Keir, Courts, Twin Wild and Moses.

“My very first studio work with Gil Norton in New Zealand was 18 years ago at the legendary York Street Studios, so when I was asked to work with him at the New Zealand Music Producer Series I jumped at the opportunity,” says Murphey.

Norton and Murphy will be hosting a four-day production workshop from 31 October to 3 November, along with an evening public seminar on the 30th October.

Applications for the New Zealand Music Producer Series are open from 6 September to 10 October.

Each seminar includes a three-day recording and one-day mixing workshop with the selected producer at Roundhead Studio and guaranteed attendance at the public seminars.

The cost for each four-day seminar is $600 plus GST. The cost of each mix-day only is $200 plus GST.

“The $12 billion New Zealand Upgrade Programme uses our capacity to boost growth by making targeted investments around the country, supporting businesses and local communities. The past decade has seen significant underinvestment in crucial national infrastructure. This has been a handbrake on our economy and society, has led to lower productivity, aging and neglected schools and hospitals, and caused congestion in our towns and cities.
