“In the Studio with MJ” seminar scheduled in Toronto on November 23, 2013
Toronto, Canada – “In the Studio with MJ” is pleased to present a first-person seminar offering an in-depth perspective on working with Michael Jackson in the recording studio and at his amazing residence, Neverland Valley Ranch. The seminar will take place on November 23, 2013, at D. C. Studios. The seminar lasts approximately six hours, and includes dinner (optional) based on Michael’s weekly album tradition of “Family Friday Dinner.”.
Brad Sundberg, a voting member of the Grammys, fills the seminar with music, videos, personal behind-the-scenes stories and photos. It is a very unique opportunity for people interested in the music industry, and in Michael Jackson in particular, to see, hear and learn what it was like to work side-by-side with a true music legend.
“The seminars were born out a desire from Michael Jackson’s fans to know more about how these incredible projects came to life”, says Brad Sundberg, seminar host/presenter. “People want to go back to the music, to where it all began – in the studio. His creative process was unlike anything I have ever been a part of, and if I can give people just a glimpse of what it was like, that’s very rewarding. And that same creative nature wasn’t just used in the studio; he brought several people together, including me, to build his dream home, Neverland. In it’s day, Neverland was one of the most beautiful places you could imagine.”
Among other topics, the seminar will detail how songs went from the original demo to the album version. Following that, many of the songs were edited, remixed and restructured for various dance mixes, short films and live tours. Brad will explain and demonstrate how the songs changed and progressed along the way. Sundberg’s primary title with the team was Technical Director, and his journey took him through Captain EO, Bad, Dangerous, HIStory and Blood On The Dance Floor. At Michael’s request, Brad also joined the Neverland Valley Ranch team where he was instrumental in designing custom music and video systems at one of the most recognized homes on the planet. From studio to tour prep to ranch, Brad was there and will take you along for the ride.
