    The Steve Albini Scottish Engineers’ Workshop and Spare Snare Album Recording Project.

    Creative Scotland £15k

    January 2018
    Renowned American recording engineer, Steve Albini came to Scotland to host a Studio Engineers’ Workshop and record Spare Snare’s new album.

    Connecting one of the world’s top producers and sound engineers, with one of Scotland’s most innovative bands, Albini hosted an Engineers’ Workshop and Recording Session at, the Chem19 recording studio in Blantyre.

    10 recording engineers from around Scotland attended the workshop, which was streamed freely online for the general public.

    The result was an album produced entirely in analogue from start to finish.

    Original Blurb:

    American recording engineer, Steve Albini comes to Scotland to host a Studio Engineers’ Workshop and record Spare Snare’s new album.

    Connecting one of the world’s top producers and sound engineers, Albini shall host a Engineers’ Workshop and Recording Session at one of Scotland’s studios, Chem19 in Blantyre.

    The workshop will give 10 Scottish Engineers the opportunity to learn techniques from Albini. There will be no cost for the days course. Engineers will be chosen through an open application process and advertised via SMIA, Scottish Music Centre and Creative Scotland.

    The workshop will use Dundee band Spare Snare as the sound source for this experience.

    Albini will record and mix Spare Snare’s new album on the days following the workshop.

    Scottish musicians will accompany Spare Snare, playing bagpipes and trumpet, adding another dimension to their sound.

    The album will be cut to vinyl direct from tape. The physical album will be sold through Scottish and Worldwide record stores. It will be available digitally on all download and streaming platforms.

    This project will develop, connect and teach the craft of studio engineering to Scottish wide engineers and the band.

    This project will raise the profile of Spare Snare and move them forward both artistically and sonically.
