Mastering (Raising Sand)

Gavin Lurssen, is a two-time Grammy winner who began his career at the Mastering Lab in 1991 as a runner. A graduate of Berklee College of Music, he was fortunate to then apprentice with Doug Sax, one of the most respected mastering engineers in the country. Lurssen has built a career and a reputation based on a careful blend of old and new methods and technologies. When Sax moved his facility north, Lurssen took the opportunity to open his own shop, and business has been booming since Lurssen Mastering went online one year ago.

Other notable projects Lurssen has mastered this year include the soundtracks for the films Ratatouille and Across the Universe; the game score for God of War II; and album projects for Lucinda Williams, Tom Waits, Aimee Mann, Matchbox 20, Tomahawk, and Allison Krauss and Robert Plant's Raising Sand, which is profiled in this month's "Recording Notes" section.

"I'll get a reputation for working with T Bone Burnett [with whom he shares the Grammy for Album of the Year for O Brother, Where Art Thou?]," Lurssen says. "You get known for a certain sound and people come for that, but there will be another bunch of people who know me for another sound. We can work on a classical soundtrack one day and a punk rock thing the next. The genres know no bounds."
