electronic Musician - March 2015 – Acoustic Materials

The March 2015 issue of electronic MUSICIAN focuses on acoustic materials. Learn how to select the right surface treatments, and how to use bass traps, diffusers, and absorbers, to improve your sonically challenged studio. Then check out some of the latest off-the-shelf acoustical products. 

Then, we shine the spotlight on the Grammy nominees. From the Arctic Monkeys' hit "Do I Wanna Know" to Beck's five-times nominated album Morning Phase; from St. Vincent's eponymous release to Little Dragon's electronic Nabuma Rubberband, we take you into the studios with the artists, producers, and engineers who made ten of this year's biggest projects.

Later, Noah Lennox's fifth solo album as alter ego Panda Bear, Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper, shows the artist's love of sample-based hip-hop and his ability to shape controlled chaos into dense melodies.
