R.I.P. Walter Sear

| April 29th, 2010

Walter Sear, the great tubist, recording engineer, adviser to Robert Moog, brass instrument maker, studio owner and fiery analogue partisan, passed away today.

Mr Sear was on my very short list of fascinating people that I always wanted to interview. And his supremely well appointed Manhattan studio has long been the place where I’ve most wanted to make a record.
