JJacob Telluride Inside… and Out has some sound advice to offer.

Thursday, November 11, 6 p.m., Telluride’s five-star Wilkinson Public Library hosts Grammy-nominated producer, engineer, arranger John Jacobs to lead Engineering Live Sound 101. His workshop explores how to set-up and get the most out of a PA system. Find out what EQ is and how to dial it in to your system and what equipment you might need for whatever sound reinforcement you are doing. Jacobs also talks about how to get better sound while you are operating cameras or doing live broadcast work.

Former Atlantic Records executive Jerry Wexler made the following comment about Jacobs’ production of Maria Muldaur’s Richland Woman, describing the project as “the best blues album of the century.” (Billboard, 2002.)  Jacobs’ folk, blues, and jazz projects have included work with Maria Muldaur, Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal, Dan Hicks, Dave Brubeck, Joe Craven, and John Sebastian. A physics-turned-UCLA music major and a working musician for 20 years, Jacobs has built a reputation for melding production and advanced recording technology with the artistry of a musician.

In addition to owning and operating Small Treasures Studio in San Jose, CA, for over 12 years, Jacobs’ other business, Treasure Consulting, has designed and integrated database, hardware and acoustic systems from the ground up.

Current projects include the design of a world-class studio in Telluride, Colorado.
