D. James Tagg (Jamie) has been happy to return to the Hot Springs Music Festival (HSMF) as recording engineering mentor every summer since 2007. In that time, he has recorded three GRAMMY®-nominated albums, received an internationally competitive recording award from the Audio Engineering Society, and has produced recordings in six states and two countries. Under his guidance, the recording apprentice program at HSMF has grown into an experimental lab for young engineers to be able to experience many microphones and techniques for classical recording, and has given birth to a new stereo mic technique called STAAG (Stereo Technique for Augmented Ambience Gradient).
Bringing together his extensive experience as both a musician and technical engineer, as well his passions in research and education, Jamie has worked as a recording, sound, and post-production engineer for over 15 years, and published his studies on microphone techniques as they pertain to human auditory perception. He received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Miami in music engineering technology, a master’s degree in sound recording technology from the University of Massachusetts Lowell, and is currently pursuing a PhD in sound recording from McGill University in Montréal.
Jamie has recorded and produced albums for organizations such as Seraphic Fire (directed by Patrick Dupré Quigley), the Aspen Music Festival, the Brass All-Stars Big Band (including players from the Canadian Brass, Boston Brass, Imperial Brass and Dallas Brass ensembles), the Banff Center for the Arts, Hugh Fraser, David Leibman, the Cassatt String Quartet, the Bergonzi String Quartet, and the Gregg Smith Singers, releasing recordings through NAXOS International, Sono Luminus, Albany Records, and SFM Inc.
This summer at Hot Springs, Jamie is proud to introduce partnerships with industry leaders Shure® and Magix®, which will give recording apprentices a chance to gain a more comprehensive experience with a wide range of microphones, as well as more individualized mixing and editing practice with the Sequoia® digital audio workstation. In an effort to further our presence on the web, we will also be adding a new video production component this year.
Please submit recording(s) you have engineered, edited or mastered.
she helps to feel full the person in big group of people. that sometimes it appears rises the whole problem for many. But if you correctly use it.
