Event Details

Join Berklee LA and Soundgirls.org for a
Women In Tune breakfast discussion

Speakers:
Tina Morris: Studio Manager, The Village
April Tucker: Re-recording Mixer and Sound Editor
Karrie Keyes: Monitor Engineer and Mixer

We'll use April Tucker's piece Women In Audio: Yes, We Exist! as a jumping off point for a conversation about sound engineering and being recognized for your work (and not your gender) in the music industry. From studios to road gigs, from operations managers to crew chiefs to venue owners - let's discuss both the sexism that runs through the music industry, but also what April points out: "a silent protest doesn’t do anything to educate about a bias that we face, but don’t like to talk about openly: We do exist. There’s a lot of us who do the job very well, actually."

Come add your voice to the conversation and meet other women working in the industry.

Breakfast refreshments will be served. Attendees are invited to contribute to the goodies if they'd like.

Parking: Park in the 1620 lot marked "Studio Parking Only" or street parking.


Bios

Tina Morris graduated from Berklee College of Music with a degree in music production and engineering in 1997.  During her last semester of college she began an internship at Sound Techniques (currently Mix One Studios) and quickly became a staff Music/Post Engineer and Tech.  Clients there included Carly Simon, Smash Mouth, Aerosmith, PBS Frontline and Discovery Channel.  After leaving Sound Techniques, Tina freelanced at production companies and studios in and around Boston, taking on a range of projects from on location sound to full-length albums.  She also installed studios and large-scale sound systems up and down the east coast.  Tina relocated to L.A. in 2006 where she started at The Village Studios as a night tech and in June 2008 acquired the role of Studio Manager.

April Tucker holds both a Master’s Degree and a Bachelor’s Degree in Sound Recording, and has over 10 years experience in the field. April works primarily as a re-recording mixer and sound editor (based in Los Angeles), but also has experience as a music editor and mixer, and ADR and Foley engineer. She has been a mixer for Yahoo! and 20th Century Fox, and her film work has been seen at major festivals such as Sundance, Cannes, SXSW and Tribeca.

Karrie Keyes
began her career in live sound at the age of 18. She's been the monitor engineer for Pearl Jam and Eddie Vedder for 24 years. She’s also spent 10 years (1990-2000) as monitor engineer for Red Hot Chili Peppers and has mixed a very diverse list of additional artists.
