In this month's Journal, we have a jam-packed studio edition. Last month, some of the Spitfire team travelled to LA for our Encompass event. Whilst we were there, we caught up with some Spitfire friends. Firstly, we visited composer John Paesano (Daredevil, The Defenders, Mass Effect: Andromeda) for a Creative Cribs episode and a Composer Insight interview alongside Christian. At our Encompass event, we had the pleasure of welcoming Vikings composer Trevor Morris to the stage for a live Q&A, Pascal Wyse sits down with S U R V I V E members Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein for a Composer Insight interview about their music for hit TV show, Stranger Things. Christian and Jake Jackson put their chosen reverbs to the test with a new In Depth episode, and last but not least, we offer up a behind the scenes peek at the Hans Zimmer Strings pickup sessions at AIR Studios, where Paul, Christian and Spitfire's production team spent the day with the man himself.
