Parker and Stephen have a great talk with Greg Norman, a recording engineer, producer, and technician at Steve Albini’s studio, Electrical Audio, in Chicago, who also constructs and repairs various audio devices out of necessity and general interest, under the name, Normaphone. Greg discusses his background and early “pre-Google” experiments and learnings, how to create a low-noise studio space and how your neighbors might unwittingly interfere with such things, why he has had to invent or upgrade certain audio engineering tools and whether or not there’s a market for these products, learning from and helping others in his field, what it’s like working with musicians, plus much more!
