Anjali Martin on her engineering career and working with My Bloody Valentine
Great interview with Anjali Martin (fka Anjali Dutt) on her engineering career. I especially love this quote on Kevin Shields trying to get that massive sound on Loveless, eshewing the wall-of-sound approach that you might assume they took:
"... you have the one big guitar sound... You don't multitrack because it'll get smaller again, because of the phase cancellation. He also wanted it to sound claustrophobic, which it does, but that's because he did not want any reflections anywhere. We weren't in very expensive studios, and so it's quite hard to make it a dead environment [acoustically]. So, you've gotta imagine that you are just going mad in a space that's just noise."
