Alan Parsons' Art & Science of Sound Recording (2010) 3 x DVD9
Nearly three years in the making, Alan Parsons' Art & Science of Sound Recording is a monumental ten-hour video series. Narrated by actor and musician Billy Bob Thornton, it is divided into 24 sections, starting with a brief history of recording.

Parsons' illustrious career - as a recording engineer, producer, composer and artist - acts as both backdrop and inspiration for the series. Parsons worked with The Beatles on the albums Abbey Road and Let It Be, engineered Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, and produced a string of multi-platinum hits for The Hollies, Pilot, Ambrosia, Al Stewart and other artists, as well as for The Alan Parsons Project.

This is the most powerful instructional series ever created for music production. The Art & Science of Sound Recording looks at everything from soundproofing to mixing, and from recording guitar, bass, keyboards, drums and vocals, to recording a choir.
