RECORDING IN PROGRESS is a documentary about the creative spaces that produce the music we know and love. This feature film addresses the issues facing not only recording studios in the age of digital streaming, but the music industry as a whole. Are recording studios still needed to record professional sounding music? Where do musicians find themselves capturing their art? How does the financial situation of musicians, in addition to the music industry as a whole, affect studio usage. Are the evolution of technology leading studios to reinvent their economic model? All of this and more is explored in Recording In Progress with interviews from industry veterans like Steve Lillywhite (producer for U2, Peter Gabriel, 30 Seconds to Mars), Steve Albini (engineer for Nirvana and The Pixies), Vance Powell (engineer for Chris Stapleton and Jack White) and musicians like Richard Fortus (Guns’ N Roses).
