Audio-Technica, a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 50 years, the Recording, Radio and Film Connection (RRFC), a network of unique educational, instructional and mentorship programs developed for aspiring media professionals, and Clyne Media, Inc., one of the nation's premier specialized marketing/public relations agencies, have established the Csaba Petocz Master Class Scholarship, an annual audio education event created to honor the legacy of the beloved producer/engineer.
Five scholarship winners will be selected to attend a two-day advanced audio workshop conducted by long-time friend and colleague of Csaba, GRAMMY® Award-winning producer/engineer Joe Chiccarelli, at the legendary studios of Sunset Sound in Hollywood, CA. This workshop is open to advanced audio engineering and music production students and apprentices.
Chiccarelli will lead the workshop sessions, which will focus on the essentials of tracking, mixing and production. The sessions will include the recording of critically acclaimed indie rock band Slow Hollows. Currently, Chiccarelli is finalizing the curriculum and class format that will not only stress recording and mixing best practices, but also aim to instill the standards and values that made working with Csaba such a unique and rewarding experience. There is limited enrollment for this up-close-and-personal workshop, which will take place August 19 and 20, 2017. The five scholarship recipients will be chosen by the Recording Connection admissions staff.
