What Does A Producer Do? Dennis MacKay, Chapter One

From Dreamland-3D.

Any upcoming recording artist should absorb this gold plated interview word for word. The information included will save them years of studio "Trial and Error".

"What Does A producer Do?" Is Chapter One of an extroadinarily candid conversation between Meredith Day and Dennis MacKay. It is about what makes a great producer and recording artist.

MacKay started at Trident Studios in England as a 16 year old tea boy, and worked his way up to one of the most dynamic engineer/producers on record. With a retinue of iconic albums to his credit, MacKay is still active today, having won a Grammy recently for his groundbreaking work with Stanley Clarke.

Known by those whom he has produced as a "maestro of the mix" MacKay is known for his radio sound. MacKay is sought out time after time by the very best recording artists in the industry. Having worked with three out of four of the Beatles, this video is the first installment of an extensive doorway into the extraordinary world of Dennis MacKay.

"Dennis is rather reclusive, I feel really lucky to have had the opportunity to film him in his home studio while he imparted so much valuable information. What he has done in his life is a literal history of Rock and Roll, POP and Jazz!" Meredith Day
