The TEC Foundation for Excellence in Audio, Inc., has announced its list of 2011 nominees for Outstanding Creative Achievement in audio technology and production. These awards recognize those who work "behind the scenes" in creating music for film, television, video games, live broadcasts and records.
It is with tremendous pride that I share here that my husband, Jim, has been nominated for two TEC Awards for his mastering work on the album "Band of Joy" by Robert Plant, and the single "Angel Dance" from that same album. (If you're curious about what a mastering engineer does, here is a good explanation from Wikipedia.)
Other nominees in these categories are people who worked on projects for Cee Lo Green, Katy Perry, Adele, Black Eyed Peas, and Jay Z and Alicia Keys, so this feels like pretty rarefied air!
Good luck, sweetie! Win or lose, you still "master" my world (haha).
