CSUCI’s Beatles Guest Artist Series to Host Grammy Winner Geoff Emerick

CSU Channel Islands invites the public and campus community to a moderated discussion with legendary Grammy Award-winning engineer and producer Geoff Emerick, best-known for his work with The Beatles.

The free event will be held at 3 p.m. next Thursday, Nov. 29, in the Grand Salon on the CI campus. Online reservations are required; click here.

Emerick’s appearance is part of an ongoing Beatles Guest Artist Series hosted by CI’s Art and Performing Arts Program and created by Dr. Paul Murphy as part of his PAMU/ART 231 course, The Beatles: Music, Fashion and Culture.

Each semester, Murphy brings in guest artists who have worked with the Fab Four to share their stories, insights, experience and advice with students and the community. The series is sponsored through support from student Instructionally Related Activities funds; the event’s additional sponsors are CI’s Art and Performing Arts Programs and the Martin V. Smith School of Business & Economics. Previous guests have included guitarist Laurence Juber and Beatles tribute band Paperback Writer.

Emerick is a four-time Grammy-winning engineer and producer. He began working as an assistant engineer in London’s EMI studio in 1962, at age 15. In 1966, he became the Beatles’ senior engineer and right-hand man to producer George Martin. Together, they recorded some of the Beatles’ most innovative and popular albums, including Revolver, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Magical Mystery Tour, The Beatles (aka The White Album) and Abbey Road.

Emerick pioneered many recording techniques that are still commonly used today. In 1969, he was hired directly by the Beatles and their Apple Corps Ltd. company and put in charge of constructing a new state-of-the-art recording studio. His post-Beatles career includes working with Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello, Supertramp, Cheap Trick, Jeff Beck and many others.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
