Biography

In 1960, along with a group of musicians collectively known as The Blue Men, studio pioneer Joe Meek recorded the innovative, strange album “I Hear A New World”. The album is regarded as a watershed in modern music due to Meek’s approach to the recording process, opening up the world of sound technology, redefining it from science to an art in its own right.

I Hear A New World marked the beginning of creative audio engineering, with vocals being recorded in obscure locations for effect, peculiar time and pitch shifting effects, and home built compressors and equalizers (the original designs of which are still used today by professional engineers). Joe Meek & The Blue Men created an album that would not only go on to become a musical success, but which would also inspire and influence countless people and generations in both music and music technology.
