Sennheiser Master Class - Telling Your Story with Sound

January 12, 2017

Sennheiser's Master Class series continues, featuring NYU's Jim Anderson


"A podcast can be more than a monologue or an interview; it can be a rich environment for using sound to tell your story. One can use sound in many ways, whether it’s to set the scene, illustrate a concept, or enliven a journalistic endeavor."

Internationally recognized recording engineer and producer Jim Anderson spoke at Sennheiser's SoHo pop-up store, giving a brilliant interactive lecture as part of Sennheiser's Master Class series.

The talk took the audience on an international aural journey from the 'hollars’ of Kentucky to the streets of Grenada in search of sounds. With Jim Anderson’s deep background in broadcasting, he demonstrated the power of sound to illustrate and enrich a podcast.
