Guest Lecture: Gordon Raphael

Aisling Kiely

As part of our new Guest Lecture series we had the absolute pleasure of welcoming Gordon Raphael into our Spirit Studio for an intimate Q&A session with our students.

This was followed by a masterclass/feedback event where Gordon kindly listened to some work produced by our students and offered his opinion on their tracks and shared some tips for improvement.

During the Q&A, Gordon spoke at length about his life and career in music, which has seen him work with The Strokes, Regina Spektor, The Libertines and many more. Answering questions from the floor and also our own pre-prepared prompts, Gordon shared with us some invaluable studio tips and tricks, discussed his approaches and techniques to production, offered opinion on the music industry as a whole and shared some amusing and also insightful anecdotes from his time in studios around the world.

Opportunities such as this are invaluable to our students and we would like to thank Gordon for sparing his time with us.
