Beatles Guest Series: Geoff Emerick
|Date||November 29, 2012 3:00 PM–4:30 PM|
The Beatles Guest Artist Series is an Instructionally Related Activities (IRA) event featuring visiting guest artists who have worked with the Beatles. This exciting series is a part of the new PAMU/ART 231 course The Beatles: Music, Fashion and Culture taught by Dr. Paul Murphy.
Geoff Emerick is a four time GRAMMY award winning engineer and producer. Mr. Emerick began working as an assistant engineer in London’s EMI studio in 1962, at age 15. In 1966, he became the Beatles senior engineer and right hand man to producer George Martin. Together they recorded some of the Beatles most innovative and popular albums including Revolver, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Magical Mystery Tour, The Beatles (aka The White Album) and Abbey Road. During this period, Mr. Emerick pioneered many recording techniques that are still commonly used today. In 1969, he was hired directly by the Beatles and their Apple Corps Ltd. company and put in charge of constructing a new state of the art recording studio. Mr. Emerick’s post-Beatles career includes working with Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello, Supertramp, Cheap Trick, Jeff Beck and many others. Please join us on Thursday, November 29th from 3-4:30pm in Grand Salon for this exciting CI event.
