AES 130th Convention Presents The Recording Legacy of Phil Spector

LONDON: As influential as he is controversial, Phil Spector created an
unrivaled legacy of innovative music production techniques and, a priceless treasure of unforgettable music performances. On Sunday, May 15, 14:30 – 16:15, the AES 130th Convention will host producer/musician Barry Marshall’s presentation: Phil Spector And The Legacy of The Svengali Producer.

An in-depth exploration of Spector’s genius, the event will describe his literal creation of the role of the record producer. Marshall will trace Spector’s evolution, from his early career as an artist, his apprenticeship with Atlantic Records and Leiber & Stoller, his flowering as a producer-mogul with his Philles record label, his initial “retirement” in 1967, his re-invention as the producer of John Lennon and George Harrison and his later work with artists like the Ramones. The lecture will emphasize Spector’s evolution from the initial creation of his “Wall of Sound” through his Svengali-like approach to artist development. Numerous examples of Spector’s work will be played throughout the event.

This event is jointly hosted by the AES and the APRS, the Association of Professional Recording Services.
