REVERSAL OF THE MUSE is a new blog curated by Laura Marling that explores femininity in creativity.
The first podcast presents an interview with Vanessa Parr, sound engineer at The Village Studios in LA for 10 years, close collaborator of Elton John, B.B. King, Coldplay and John Mayer amongst others, and now independent sound engineer.
I find very interesting Laura Marling’s chat with Vanessa Parr where Vanessa recalls how she broke into a male dominated field, where female engineers are few and far between (the actual interview begins at 2’27”).
This new blog has been shared on FB by the great mastering engineer Mandy Parnell.
Here is another video where Vanessa Parr discusses how she broke into the recording engineering field. It is no surprise that she states “I went to a number of studios where they say: ‘We don’t hire girls! We hire girls to be client-service-girls’ “.
