(Los Angeles, CA – January 7, 2016) Infrasonic Sound, an audio and vinyl mastering studio in Los Angeles, is pleased to announce that engineer Dave Gardner will join the studio’s staff beginning January 2016. Gardner, the founder of Magneto Mastering in Minneapolis, brings over 17 years of experience to his new position at Infrasonic Sound. Gardner will join Principal Mastering Engineer Pete Lyman, engineers Phillip Rodriguez and Nick Townsend as a full-time member of the studio’s staff. Infrasonic is co-owned by Lyman and Jeffrey Ehrenberg.
“Dave’s approach to mastering really aligns with Infrasonic’s ethos,” says Co-owner Pete Lyman. “His client roster is equally as diverse, from punk to Americana to jazz, and he thinks of the mastering process not as a one-way experience for the client, but as a collaborative one. We’re really looking forward to joining forces and utilizing the talent (and the collection of vintage Ampex Tape Machines!) that Dave will contribute.”
Gardner will integrate his existing mastering setup into the studio at Infrasonic, including his ATC SCM 100A speakers. While on staff, he will continue working as Audio Consultant for Noiseland Industries, coordinating the audio components of the company’s vinyl manufacturing process. The position compliments Infrasonic’s thriving vinyl mastering department.
“Coming to Infrasonic feels, both from a facility standpoint and a client standpoint, like everything is coming together in exactly the right fit,” says Gardner. “Everything I do as a digital mastering engineer keeps an eye toward vinyl as the end-format. This approach has really dictated my creative decisions and informed the way that I handle audio.”
Some of Gardner’s recent projects include upcoming releases for Pkew Pkew Pkew (Gunshots), the forthcoming release from Mrs. Magician, Mean Jeans for Fat Wreck Chords and Ceremony’s “The L-Shaped Man.” Gardner has also mastered projects for The Hold Steady, Black Lips, Rocket from the Crypt, Hot Snakes, Trampled by Turtles and Drive Like Jehu, to name a select few.
