Recording Unhinged: Creative and Unconventional Music Recording Techniques dares you to "unlearn" safe record-making, to get out from behind the windshield, stick your head out the sunroof, and put the pedal to the metal!

"There have been countless how-to books on sound recording, but this isn't one of them. Sylvia Massy has a unique perspective on what makes musicians tick and how great recordings are created. This book is a brilliantly assembled insight into there world and is a cracking good read," says Alan Parsons.


In Recording Unhinged, Sylvia Massy and her cohort of celebrity music industry producers, engineers, and recording stars discard fixed notions about how music should be recorded. They explore techniques that fall outside the norm, yielding emotionally powerful, incredibly personal, gut-wrenching, and even scary recordings. With commentary by Hans Zimmer, Al Schmitt, Bruce Swedien, Jack Joseph Puig, Dave Pensado, Tchad Blake, Bob Clearmountain, Linda Perry, Michael Franti, Michael Beinhorn, Bob Ezrin, Geoff Emerick, and many others, this book includes the stories, tips, and advice that you won't find in any other instructional manual.

"Working with Sylvia on Undertow was an absolute pleasure. Whether recording the destruction of a piano with sledgehammers and shotguns, or dialing in killer drum sounds with the greatest mic choices, her approach was always fresh, fun, and never preconceived. This book will assuredly inspire some wacky recording sessions!", praises Danny Carey (drummer from TOOL).

Recording Unhinged is also unique in its inclusion of exercises, diagrams, jokes, photos, and other images all related to more adventurous recording techniques. Thought the book (and on the cover) are many full-color illustrations - created by a musical genius - Massy herself!

I ordered it online a little while back. It arrived earlier this week and I'd pretty much read it cover-to-cover in the space fo two days. Lots of really cool ideas in there, lots of funny stories, but for some reason I was expecting it to be a longer book. It's more of a coffee table book or something to have lying around while you're recording to get musicians excited rather than a reference book you'd keep on the shelf.

Great illustrations too.

I got this book for x-mas, it's just so amazingly fun and filled with gold nuggets of sound. It's the one of those few books that I'll keep just laying around on the coffee table and kitchen area.

I know this is an old post I’m replying to but I ordered from backwing with this link about a month ago now and I haven’t heard anything beyond the initial confirmation of my order. As far as I know it hasn’t shipped and there’s no way to cancel or even contact them from what I see (replies I made to that initial email were never returned). Any ideas on it? I’m not implying you have any responsibility for it, just wondering if you has any knowledge of backwing or how I might find out. I really do want to read the book!

Only saw this now.

Did you get sorted? If not please pm me and I’ll see what I can find out for you (I have no relationship with the company so can’t promise anything)
