On May 19, Wild About Music will unveil a new exhibit featuring the photography of noted record producer and engineer Eddie Kramer (ROLLING STONES, JIMI HENDRIX, LED ZEPPELIN, KISS). Expresso@8 with Eddie Kramer From The Other Side of The Glass offers an opportunity to meet the artist in an intimate setting and hear the stories behind the photographs he took of rock icons in a slide show presentation.
"We're expecting many music and film guests, plus Mick Jagger, Carlos Santana...well, almost! The photographs are so brilliant, you can feel the artists' presence," says Claris Sayadian-Dodge of studioexpresso who's hosting the event with Wild About Music.
While much has been written about Kramer's innovations in the recording studio, few have ever been exposed to his considerable talent in photography. "During 1967-1972, I was very fortunate to have been in the presence of some of the greatest rock artists of all time — even luckier to have had a camera along with me," says Kramer.
The event is designed for the growing ranks of independent music professionals and business operators such as artists, managers, studio owners, producers and music and film executives.
"We have augmented our permanent collection for this special event to include over 40 single images as well as large photo montages," says Wild About Music's Shelley Meyer. "These unique personal works are rarely exhibited and have never been published in mass media making them extremely desirable for collectors." All images are available by special order in a variety of sizes and groupings.
A Q&A session and reception will follow the slide presentation.
