Guest Masterclass from Beatles' Former Sound Engineer

Big news just in! Our final guest masterclass of the year will feature Richard Digby Smith, chief sound engineer for Island Records during the record industry’s 1970’s heyday. Since then he has had a prolific career as a musician and recording engineer for an incredibly diverse range of artists before going on to design, construct and manage his own seven studio complex in West London. Although the list of artists he has worked with is far too long to go through in its entirety, some notable names include The Beatles, Bob Marley, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Cliff, Grace Jones, Phil Spector and Aswad!

The lecture will take place at 1 pm on Friday 10th December and is free for all Point Blank students. Places are limited and allocated on a first come first serve basis so email us now to reserve your place.
