My guest today is Kevin White a Nashville based musician, audio engineer, musicologist, film composer, and audio educator.
As an audio engineer, Kevin has worked with national corporate clients, films, radio, rock bands and gained a reputation for his retro-futurist aesthetics. He has taught classes on mixing and lo-fi production techniques. Kevin is a voting member of the recording academy and works full-time for the audio production college, SAE Institute.
A notable milestone in Kevin's career has been his contributions to the NASA Apollo Flight Journal. His musicology and audio restoration work has contributed to the preservation of American/space flight history as well as expanding the frontiers of musicology.
Kevin was part of the newly-released documentary film Teslafy Me (2019) which presents the history of renewable energy and the authentic story of Nikola Tesla from the perspective of his Balkan homeland. As the film's composer and sound supervisor Kevin specifically used sounds from Tesla's lifetime.
He mixed the instrumentation of an old fashioned Serbian string band with early electronic instruments from the era including the: Theremin, Ondes Martenot, Hammond Novachord, and Hammond Solovox. He also used source samples of vintage equipment including electric arcs, Tesla Coils, and a Bell Labs Voder, in order to create a unique sonic signature for the film.
