Talbot Snow Reno Engineer / Producer

Background

Talbot Snow has more titles than will fit on a normal business card. Musician, Producer, Director, Sound Engineer, Photographer, Videographer, Dishwasher, and the list goes on. So how did he come to wear so many hats?It comes from a lifetime of being absorbed in art and music. It started when Talbot was a boy, growing up – first in New Zealand, then later, developing his artistic abilities in Las Vegas. During his teenage years, he transitioned from the piano to electronic music and discovered his affinity for electronics and sound equipment.In the mid 80’s, Talbot took out a small loan, and started his first recording studio. Sound Masters of Las Vegas was born, and some of Talbot’s lifelong ambitions were beginning to materialize. Dubbed Sound Masters: Studio One, this first studio was home to Talbot and thousands of different music-projects spanning many years. Several years later, Talbot started construction on Sound Masters (SMLV): Studio Two, the current primary location of Sound Masters. The space is large enough to house his entire collection of state-of-the-art and vintage sound equipment, and can accommodate varying musical acts—from a single vocalist to an entire band. At the same time, and after repeated requests from his clients, Talbot expanded his business to include Photography, Video, Graphic and Web Design. Being the gear junkie that he is, Talbot researched extensively for the best cameras and lighting equipment available. After much practice and trial and error, he has become an outstanding photographer and producer of some of the hottest local music videos and commercials around. But Talbot isn’t finished. His sights have now turned to the next evolution of the Sound Masters space – an entire building filled with multiple studios, a sound stage, even a nightclub. He sees it as a multimedia circus under one roof, where artists can work… and even live. And given that this Kiwi has already progressed from mild-mannered singer to high school rocker to renowned producer, no one should doubt that he’ll bring his new vision to life.

DJ Axenzo Reno Live DJ

DJ Axenzo Reno Live DJ

Background

Axenzo had recently graduated San Diego State University with a degree in mechanical engineering when he found that having achieved a major life goal, namely getting a degree to make his parents happy, had quite an interesting effect on him. Now that he’d achieved that, what else was possible? What could he achieve if he pursued something he was downright passionate about—music. While an engineering student, Axenzo had tried to double in music but the classes weren’t stimulating and were “very theoretical” with nothing practical or new to offer. Brewing at the back of his mind for years been the idea of learning how to produce EDM. While it wasn’t a choice his mother would consider practical, to him it was the natural conclusion. Axenzo was an active EDM explorer who attended shows regularly, a lifelong musician who played guitar and piano, and even wrote melodies on a whim. Music was just the thing going on in his mind. After completing his college degree with high marks, Axenzo spent a number of months training with a professional EDM music mentor who taught him Pro Tools and Logic with direct, one-on-one lessons. Although he already knew how to play a couple instruments he’d never set his hands on a DAW. Nevertheless he excelled fast, and consistently challenged himself while getting hands-on training and tips from his music mentor, a longtime engineer and EDM producer himself. During his time in the program Axenzo was able to create his own EDM songs, first starting on MIDI, then composing from within a digital environment. Crossing the bridge from having to play and record, to creating digitally “opened a door” for the EDM creator and DJ. In the two years since graduating the program, Axenzo has built a promising career in EDM as a DJ who has opened for Bob Sinclar, Robin Schulz, Steve Aoki, Marshmello, Borgeous, Nicky Romero, among others. Nevertheless, for him DJing and especially composing new material as a producer is a never ending journey. The great unifier isn’t by genre or culture for the rising talent. Regularly dipping into multiple genres and researching far and wide, Axenzo is in quest of something singularly specific: “I’m trying to create something that every time people listen to my tracks they’ll know it’s me. That’s my focus right now. I’m working on it every day.” Now, the melodies and musical ideas Axenzo used to write on a whim are being put to use professionally as he divides his workdays between producing new material and performing at venues. He says, he’s even got a surefire way of capturing the music when it hits: “I open the recorder on my phone and just sing the melody to myself. Even if I’m in the shower, I’ll get out and record it.” Now versed in Ableton as well as Logic and Pro Tools, Axenzo is fluent in the various DAWS and he’s confident in his capacity to continually explore and grow as an artist. And as for future goals, he’s got a few: “I definitely would like to play in big festivals. Hopefully at Ultra Miami, EDC Las Vegas, and I would like to go worldwide. I’m working on it. I know there’s lots of competition, but I think nothing is impossible.” As for the time he spent as an apprentice in the program, Axenzo says, “It was an amazing journey. I am extremely thankful.” Axenzo currently performs weeklies at The Hard Rock Café in Las Vegas, Nevada, and The Pool House and Sunset Vibes in San Diego, California. Request an Invitation

Gregory Hainer Reno Post Production

Background

Recording Connection mentor Gregory Hainer is an interesting case. Usually our Recording mentors work primarily in the music industry but Gregory has made a successful career for himself in music as well as film, television, and video game entertainment as a music composer, voice over specialist, Sound FX designer and mixer on numerous projects including: Plants vs. Zombies 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Guild Wars 2, Prince of Egypt, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, We Were Soldiers, Dishonored, Black Hawk Down, and many more. Gregory does most of his work from Scorpio Sound, his boutique studio located in the Hollywood Hills. His unique skills-set, talent, and setup enables him to do work larger audio studios can’t. “From a client’s perspective, I own the studio, so there is no middle management overhead to worry about because the owner/operator is also the creative head. This means I have the freedom to choose to spend a little more time with my clients in order to get things perfect versus having to be out of a studio by a specific time.” Specialty might as well be Gregory’s middle name. “I get quite a few calls for the most unusual or difficult to design stuff that many in-house teams can’t quite seem to pull off convincingly, such as creating sounds for creatures, magic spells, sci-fi effects, light sabers and the like. But I will also get the occasional call to do the less-fun direct stuff like cleaning up poorly recorded production audio from a film, or digging out inaudible archival dialogue from excessive background noise.” On top of working in the film, TV, and video game industries Gregory also takes on Recording Connection apprentices and teaches them about both the industry and the craft of audio engineering.
