console. Hewitt recently completed engineering a solo record
by John Fusciante (Red Hot Chili Peppers), as well as projects
by Tom Petty and Frankie Perez. "The console is serial
number three, and came out of Soundtrack New York." Using
Finn's Tannoys and his own Proac nearfield speakers, Hewitt
observes, "Mainly we're monitoring through the desk,
and doing rough mixes. Given the
fact that we're on two-inch tape and high-res Pro Tools HD,

really important. We're counting on the fact that what goes
into it comes out."

("20-20"), Anne Murray ("You Needed Me"),
and well, the list goes on and on.

has also had his own project studio since the early 1980's.
"That's right, home studios were extremely rare back
then. But I spent so much money one year paying studio bills
that I decided to go ahead and build my own room. The learning
curve was steep, but I had worked with some great engineers,

Lists with William Morris Agency
ArtistDirect Vice Chaiman Marc Geiger has taken a position
at William Morris Agency while Nasdaq has notified ArtistDirect
that its stock will be delisted.
recognizing the enormous potential of the Internet to provide
a direct link between recording artists and music consumers,
he purchased UBL.com in '94. His vision for the company was
to create a combination of an artist channel and an electronic
commerce showcase. The evolution of Mr. Geiger's career is
a well-balanced education in all of the key components of
the music industry. From 1984 to 1991, he was a talent agent
for Triad Artists, which was later acquired by the William
Morris Agency. Recognizing the growth of alternative music,
Mr. Geiger developed and ran a division of the agency to serve
this important sector. Alongside Don Muller and Perry Farrell,
Mr. Geiger created the critically acclaimed Lollapalooza concert
tour, which premiered in the summer of 1991. Subsequently,
Mr. Geiger was appointed Executive Vice President of Marketing
and New Media at American Recordings. A Connecticut native,
Mr. Geiger found his calling in music working as a concert
promoter while still a computer science student at the University
of California, San Diego.

Live from Clear
The service, Instant Live, offers fans the opportunity to
purchase CDs of the concert they just attended before they
leave the venue. It has been test-marketed at small venues
in the Boston area. CCE has forged an exclusive deal with
Best Buy to carry the live CDs in its Boston-area stores,
or at BestBuy.com, beginning later this month. CDs from select
Boston concerts will be available soon at CCE events nationwide.
Additionally, fans can pre-order the CDs when they purchase
their concert tickets.
the discs, a master recording is made that blends music from
the band's mixing board with ambient sounds, including crowd
noise, from other microphones. As soon as the show ends, the
master copy is taken to a small tower of CD burners, each
of which can duplicate up to eight discs at a time. Fans will
be able to preorder the discs when they buy tickets for the
concert or place orders at any time during or after the performance.The
two disc set will sell for $15.
Azoff, said he was enthusiastic about the Instant Live concept,
especially at a time when concert concession sales are declining.
"I, for one, would rather have a live CD of the show
that I can take home than a T-shirt," he said. "So
I think it's the future of the touring merchandising business."
Mr. Azoff said he was talking to Clear Channel about offering
Instant Live discs during a summer tour of the vintage rock
bands Journey and REO Speedwagon, provided that the company
can demonstrate its ability to churn out enough discs to satisfy
an arena-size audience.
