Go behind the scenes and learn what it’s like to be an in-demand audio expert – and even learn what a piano sounds like when it's pushed off a cliff!


Sylvia wrote the rule book and tore it up.

Never one to look at the picture in an obvious way, she’ll tell us what it’s like to work with Tool, Prince, Aerosmith, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Rick Rubin.

Recently Sylvia mixed Foo Fighters drummer, Taylor Hawkin’s solo album with the likes of Dave Grohl, Joe Walsh and Roger Taylor as ‘fader fodder’.
