My name is Spencer Gray. At an early age, I realized and developed my love for music and sound. I began playing guitar at the age of 8, and quickly began desiring more. I then moved on to the tenor sax, mandolin, piano and drums. While in high school, I began pursuing techniques in analog synthesizers and electronic music. I became infatuated with modulating electricity to create unique sonic timbres.
As an engineer for the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University in the Recording Arts Program I was responsible for recording, mixing, live sound reinforcement and archiving performances given or put on by the University. As first engineer, I recorded Joshua Bell, The Orion String Quartet, The David Baker Jazz Band, Angela Brown, Todd Rundgren as well as a number of IU Orchestras and vocal groups. I also pursued a concentration in composition, writing pieces for saxophone quartet and irregular string quartet.
While attending school I started Schooner Records, a music production company specializing in recital recordings, demos and songwriting.
In the summer of 2010 I interned at Dubway Studios in New York City. At Dubway I learned from a team of amazing engineers, musicians and producers and was able to assist on a number of sessions with great artists such as Bjork, Sarah Blasko and Chip Taylor.
I lived in Brooklyn, NY for one year working as a freelance recording engineer doing remote recordings at clubs around NYC as well as an engineer and Uptime Studios in Manhattan.
