Ray Russell, A Life In Music
Just because you didn’t get to go to that awesome conference doesn’t mean that you can’t still watch the lectures! From time to time we’ll feature a recommended audio lecture on Audiotuts+.
Ray Russell's inaugural lecture last year covered highlights from his 40-year career in the music industry ranging from his first professional job with the John Barry Seven to working with Tina Turner and on classic television theme tunes including Bergerac and A Touch of Frost.
The lecture was delivered in a unique format that saw Ray backed by a band including his sons, Charlie and George, on bass and drums and his friend, Geoff Castle, on keyboards, to perform various pieces from throughout Ray's career. Ray's warm and humorous delivery was full of interesting and funny anecdotes and the audience of students, staff and industry guests thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
