Gurus of Tech was an awesome experience last week in Chicago. It was really great to visit with so many old friends, as well as meet face to face many new ones from Twitter and this blog. The content was as great as you would expect…especially Scott Ragsdale’s interview with Robert Scovill. I’m planning to unpack a few of statements from his interview over the next few weeks because there’s so much wisdom here, especially in the world of church production. If you haven’t seen it yet, regardless of if you’re an audio guy or not, go here, watch, and take notes. His is session #4.
The magic to me of Gurus is the organic-ness of it all. In a world where there is seemingly at least one conference or trade show a month, Gurus still maintains an innocence just by the whole premise behind it – technical artists gathering together to teach each other, be inspired, and share community. I’m definitely a convert and will be doing everything I can to take a group from New Life to the gathering this summer in Louisville.
I was especially honored to be able to join a panel with some great friends this time around to talk about the art of mixing. If you were not able to make it and would like to download “bootleg” audio from our session, my friend Dave has it posted on his blog. You can find it here… http://goingto11.com/?p=1032
