Here, record producer Beinhorn reveals how to deal with interpersonal issues record producers face when they work with artists one on one or in small groups.
The situations and solutions are based upon the author's personal and professional experience working with a variety of different artists, such as Herbie Hancock, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Soul Asylum, Hole, Soundgarden, Ozzy Osbourne, Courtney Love, Marilyn Manson, Social Distortion, Korn, and Mew.
Beinhorn's unique methods and perspective, applied to record producing and music making in the studio, opens the door to successful collaborative efforts. The author shows you how to find what he calls your sensory connection to the creativity process, which ultimately helps you find the intent behind your creative choices.
You can read dozens of articles and books that feature a hundred different people talking about what microphones they used when they recorded Record X or how they set their stereo buss compressor, but you will never find out what prompted them to make these choices. Beinhorn's focus on collaborative effort enables record producers and artists to find solutions while working as a creative team.
This perspective is especially valuable as it is transdisciplinary and can be applied to many occupations and modes of creativity outside of record production.

Anything this guy touches...
Enormous fan and devotee of Mr. Beinhorn and his music. Enjoyed the hard copy of this book and spent quite a lot of time with a highlighter in hand. Love the little anecdotes strewn throughout the book - you know you're reading about people and records you love. Perhaps, a follow up of studio stories and other illuminating (or lurid) tales would be fun. Again, winner.

Enlightening, Eye Opening and Insightful!
I am very impressed with Mr. Beinhorn's insightful analysis of the artistic process and the ins and outs of bringing out the best in others and even applying those lessons to yourself. The lessons in this book are practical and touch on the inspiration and how to connect to it in new and meaningful ways. The BEST book I've ever read about creativity - BAR NONE! I went out and bought my own hard copy online to highlight and underline passages to my hearts content.
