On April 26, the Los Angeles Chapter hosted a listening session with LAC Board Governor Mike Einziger and Brandon Boyd of Incubus and co-producer/mixer Sonny Moore aka Skrillex. Newly elected LAC President Peter Asher moderated the evening’s unique listening experience, which was held in Studio D at The Village in Santa Monica.

Skrillex, Brandon, and Mike played selected tracks from Incubus’ new record, 8, while discussing the creative and collaborative efforts that went into the making of the album. The panelists covered such wide-ranging and interesting topics as how the collaboration between Incubus and Skrillex occurred, how Skrillex, who is widely known as one of the leading electronic artists of the last decade, blended his knowledge of EDM production techniques with his appreciation for beautiful rock vocals, as well as a lively tangential discussion about the musical “SPAMALOT” and the panel’s general appreciation for Monty Python.

Engineers and producers from all genres gave positive feedback, reporting that they both enjoyed and learned from the discussion.
