Recording In Progress (2020)

Recording In Progress is a documentary about the creative spaces that bring about the music we know and love. This feature length film tackles the issues facing not only recording studios in the digital streaming age, but also the music business as a whole. Are recording studios still necessary to record professional sounding music? Where do musicians find themselves capturing their art? How does the financial situation of musicians in addition to the entire music business factor in to use of studios. Has changing technology causes studios to reinvent their business model? All of this and more is explored in Recording In Progress with interviews from industry veterans like Steve Lillywhite (producer for U2, Peter Gabriel, 30 Seconds to Mars), Steve Albini (engineer for Nirvana and The Pixies), Vance Powell (engineer for Chris Stapleton and Jack White) and musicians like Richard Fortus (Guns ‘N Roses).
