Greetings all,

Demystifying the Modern Producer

Thursday / November 13, 2014 / 6:30 p.m.

 

150 Mass Avenue

Media Lab/Learning Center

6:30PM-8:30PM

In this day and age, how can we define what a “producer" does? The role is always dynamic, difficult to pin-point, and never, ever the same succession of responsibilities. Drawing from many years of experience working on major label to indie to no-budget productions, Berklee MP&E faculty member Enrique Gonzalez Müller will shed some demystifying light on the elusive and dark art of modern record production.

After graduating from Berklee College of Music in 1999 with a dual degree in Music Production & Engineering and Electronic Production & Design, Enrique Gonzalez Müller started his career as a music producer and engineer at Plant Studios working with artists like The Dave Matthews Band, Joe Satriani, E-40, and Les Claypool to name a few.

Later, Enrique went on to produce many chart-topping albums in Venezuela for Caramelos de Cianuro, Viniloversus, Desorden Publico, and others. In 2009, his collaboration with Los Amigos Invisibles on their album “Commercial” won a Latin GRAMMY Award.

Among his many other collaborations, Enrique has worked on producing, arranging, and mixing albums for L’Aura in Italy and scored a #1 hit with "Teach Me Again" for Elisa and Tina Turner. Back in the United States, Enrique continues to work with Jason Newsted of Metallica, the Kronos Quartet, Nine Inch Nails, Joan Baez, and a ton of über cool indie artists.
