Jake Jackson

Film scoring and recording engineer interview

Jake Jackson on the cover of Resolution magazine, August 2011

George Shilling visited Jake Jackson at Air Studios with the camera crew in August 2011 to find out how he has got on since winning the 'Breakthrough Engineer' award at The Music Producers Guild (MPG) Awards at the end of 2010. We are delighted to feature Jake in this exclusive video that runs 40 minutes.

Jake joined Air Studios in 1998 working on sessions with some of the most acclaimed composers in the world, now a freelance engineer in his own right, he is first choice for many composers because of his reputation as an excellent orchestral and band recording and mix engineer.

Encompassing all recording genres, his work includes, Nick Cave & Warren Ellis’s score to The Road, which he produced, recorded and mixed, and A R Rahman’s 127 hours. He has worked with Murray Gold for the last three years and their work together includes the scores for Doctor Who.

Recent projects include recording and mixing the Worlds National Anthem for the 2012 Olympics for composer Philip Sheppard, mixing the score for the forthcoming series of Silent Witness and mixing Christians Henson’s score for forthcoming film “The Devils Double”.
